Leadership Management Franchise Information:
The History of LMI
When Paul J. Meyer founded LMI in 1966, he sought to build a business to help people and organizations develop and use more of their full potential. LMI's process development specialists set about developing a complete solution to organizational planning and development. The result is the unique LMI Strategic Development Process&trade. The process itself created a paradigm shift which moved LMI to the center of the organizational development and planning marketplace.
By 1970 Meyer's products were permanent fixtures in the personal and management development marketplace. LMI - now Leadership Management, Inc. - grew at a rapid pace. LMI President David Byrd and other company executives discerned the marketplace need for strategic planning and methods, including a common-sense approach to planning and a new focus on effective, ethical leadership. Today, LMI operates in over 60 countries with materials translated in over 20 languages. We are represented in the United States by professional, certified franchise owners.
There are many entrepreneurial business opportunities today, and thousands of franchises from which to choose. LMI is truly a career of choice; special people have made the LMI business their business for 20...even 35 years.
Helping people and organizations grow and develop is an attractive career choice for some...but not all. The LMI Business Plan is tailored to the personality and goals of the owner. LMI is a big business model, one that has the potential to take you toward the financial goals you choose. Developing effective leaders and improving organizational performance is our passion...and our business.

How do I find out more about LMI?
We conduct personal interviews over the phone to determine our mutual interest. When we identify a person living in an area of interest who meets the LMI qualifying standards, we then suggest a face-to-face interview at our home office or by appointment in your local area.
Do you have a UFOC you can send me?
Since we are a privately held company, it has been a long standing company policy of LMI to deliver company financials along with the UFOC (Uniform Franchise Offering Circular; a required document) at the first face-to-face interview. We do not send our UFOC through the mail.
How does the LMI Process work?
Every business organization in the world has two things in common; a present and a future. LMI defines the daily operations of any organization as "process", which is the sum of organization's attitudes, actions, and systems. The quality of the process determines the quality of the organization's future. The unique LMI Process enhances an organization's existing process to deliver predetermined results. The LMI Process is proven and guaranteed.
Can you send me more information?
There may be other information we can provide after our initial telephone interview.
Can I talk to some of LMI's Franchise Partners?
We will provide a list of all LMI Partners at our face-to-face interview.
How much money can I make?
As per the guidelines set forth by the Federal Trade Commission, a franchise company can not discuss earning potential of the franchise offering with anyone prior to one investing in the franchise. However, after our face-to-face interview you may discuss this with any of our Franchise Partners.
What is the difference between a "Business Opportunity" and a "Franchise Opportunity"?
A "Franchise Opportunity" has governing guidelines set forth by the Federal Trade Commission. Those guidelines protect the public by requiring full disclosure of company financials, list of all franchisees both current and past, and any history of litigation against the company and its officers. A "Business Opportunity" has none of these requirements and as a result, may carry more risks for a potential investor.
