  3. 3. Dream it ... believe it it!Nelson Mandela, Michelangelo and Dr Martin Luther King all had something magical incommon. They stood among the greatest of men, yet they towered above their peerswith their extraordinary vision and drive to realise their deepest aspirations. These menall shared something pivotal: they all had a dream, not just a plan. And beyond theirdream, they made it happen, they reached their greatest goals and overcame adversityto, quite simply, do it!We at LRMG also have a dream. We dream of empowering people and organisations torealise their greatest potential, and we believe our Xperience will propel all to reach theirgoals. We’re passionate about helping you give shape to your aspirations and providingyou with the tools to realise them.“There are those who work all day. Those who dream all day. And those who spend anhour dreaming before setting to work to fulfil those dreams. Go into the third categorybecause there’s virtually no competition.”Steven J. Ross The LRMG Xperience 2
  4. 4. Our XperienceDefinition of experience: “An event or occurrence which leaves an impression onsomeone. > Encounter or undergo (an event or occurrence).> Feel (an emotionor sensation).” Oxford English Dictionary“Experiences are a distinct economic offering that cannot be seen asinterchangeable with goods and services – experiences are different, theyare memorable and personal and they are revealed over time. The firstdimension of an experience is that it involves participation from the peopleinvolved – this can be active or passive. The second is that experiencescreate a connection, which creates either absorption or immersionof participants. Memorable experiences are themed, they harmoniseimpressions with positive cues, eliminate negative cues, mix in memorabiliaand engage all five senses.”(B. Joseph Pine II and James H. Gilmore. Welcome to the Experience Economy: HarvardBusiness Review. July - August 1998. Pp 97-105.)We are a Performance Agency that creates memorableXperiences in management consulting, learning, talent andpeople technology. We empower people to dream it ... believe it... do it! The LRMG Xperience 3
  5. 5. Our PerformanceA t this point we hope you’re wondering how we realise dreams and what we do to create Xperiences. It all begins with being different – we are the Performance Agency. Our ‘performance’ element comes from our management consultingand learning capability, which ensures that we empower organisations with the essentialtools to reach their performance dreams. Our ‘agency’ aspect relates to the creativity,‘blow-up-the-box’ thinking and unique flair that we thread through everything we do.And, quite simply, that’s what we are.We believe that there are two essential components to optimising people performance.Firstly, the work environment needs to be conducive to good performance. This meansthat the culture, processes, information and resources are all appropriately aligned withinthe organisation. The second component is a readiness to perform. Your people need tobe motivated, knowledgeable and skilled, and they need the appropriate capacity to dotheir job best. When these two components come together, great performance is notjust inevitable, it’s guaranteed.Now that you know what we are, you probably want to know what our PerformanceAgency Dream Team can do for you. We grow minds, fully engage employees,optimise performance, develop critical competencies, make learning accessible,provide edutainment and, most importantly, develop people, so that individuals andorganisations (like yours) reach their greatest performance potential and beyond.After many years in the business (we’ve been around since 1997!), we’ve discoveredhow to unlock the extraordinary in your people.
