Build a Strong Culture of Employees with Super Powers

From a caveman to a business man to superman, it's time to Build a Strong Culture of Employees

Want to Build a Strong Culture of Employees with Super Powers?
Do you have a clue about what genuinely engaged and aligned employees can do for your strategy, your culture and your brand? If not, listen up!

The Two-Fold Impact of Highly Aligned and Engaged Employees
Employees who are passionate about what they do and the company they work for can have an enormous two-fold impact. They positively influence:

#1.  Internally: The way your business works and runs.

#2.  Externally: The way your company’s products, services and brand are perceived by both current and potential customers.

These employees are not the monosyllabic caveman or even the competent looking businessman pictured above. They have super powers to become your most effective evangels to the outside world and agents for positive change within your corporate culture.

If You Build a Strong Culture of Employees, You Will Enhance Your Brand
Highly aligned and engaged employees spread word of your brand, bring new customers to your door, generate an ever-higher level of current customer loyalty and woo new talent to the company they love. Not only can aligned and engaged employees be one of the most effective communication tools for your business, but super employees can also become your competitive edge in a very competitive market.

If You Build a Strong Culture of Employees, You Will Enhance Your Workplace Culture
We define culture as how things truly get done in an organization. And culture matters a lot.

Research by Harvard established that an effective culture can account for up to half of the differential in performance between organizations in the same business.  Our own organizational alignment research found culture accounts for 40% of the difference between high and low performing companies.

When your employees clearly understand and consistently model your desired corporate culture, you have super employees and are moving in the right direction.

Tips to Increase the Number of Super Employees
Here are some tips on how to take advantage of these super employees…first by finding them, next by understanding what it is they love about your company and services, and then how to increase their numbers. The key is to find them, learn from them and appreciate them.

  • Find Them
    Identify what your best workers have in common. Are they from a similar demographic? What behaviors do they have in common? How did they arrive at their “super” status?
  • Understand What They Love Most
    The best way to find out? Ask them. The better you understand what attracts, engages and retains them, the better your opportunity to use them as the models for your culture.
  • Create a Strategy to Multiply Them
    Make sure your top talent knows how much you value them. Salute their efforts with thanks and meaningful rewards. Then make sure everyone in your organization knows how much they contribute to your success.

The Bottom Line
If you build a strong culture of employees with super powers, they can become the flywheel for your business…a continuous power generator to maintain and increase your organization’s energy and growth.

I am very impressed with the quality of work and talent. LSA did a great job of listening to my needs and providing the exact management training program expertise I needed to get the job done.

Don Pryor
Director, Business Planning & Analysis

LSA Global’s consultant brought a fresh perspective to our behavioral based interviewing strategy for two key executive positions we needed to fill, and their consultant helped us develop questions that produced a much deeper understanding of candidates’ capabilities. I am confident that the two new executives joining our organization have the right skills to add significant value. Throughout the process LSA was also very responsive in dealing with short lead time requests.

Because of the unique nature of our business, Excel is a core application in our accounting organization. After three attempts to find an Excel consultant who is capable of helping our finance team integrate advanced applications into our work processes we found LSA and Alex. He was not only a “Real” Excel expert but was masterful in helping us identify where to use Excel applications in our processes to increase our group’s efficiency.

The refreshing thing about LSA is that they focus on understanding our business situation and helping me succeed instead of selling a product. With over 150 experts, they are an invaluable resource that helps me deliver higher quality results faster. I recommend them to anyone looking to improve the performance of their workforce.

For our go to training outsourcing partner, LSA provides exactly what we want. As always, they deliver outstanding work!

LSA’s Employee Engagement Consulting and Survey work has provided critical visibility into: how well our people are holding up under the general economic environment, as well as, the specific challenges that face biotechnology companies in their efforts to discover and develop new medicines; their level of alignment and commitment to XOMA’s Vision and mission critical strategies; how leadership practices and management systems support an environment that engender commitment, and the specific actions that our leaders can take to improve on areas that are important to our people. I highly recommend LSA’s employee engagement solutions.

Chris Wells
Vice President, HR and IT

In my years working with LSA, it seems like I’ve had a personal consultant at my fingertips to help me identify just the right solution to satisfy our needs. The entire LSA team has become a trusted friend of Actel — assuring we provide state-of-the-art learning to meet our complex, high-tech business and people needs.

Linda Mitchell
Training Manager

LSA custom designed a Management Development program that is absolutely “on target” for our technical managers. Their facilitator has done a superb job delivering the material in a way that is fast paced, highly interactive, and fun. She presents practical solutions to the people situations that our managers face every day. I regard LSA as an excellent partner that understands our business needs and a virtual member of our HR department.

Judith Onton
Vice President Human Resources

In the Next Generation Management Development courses, I was trained with skills and tools that have made me and my team more productive, motivated, and successful at communicating with other departments.

 

Kevin Ashman
Firmware Engineering Supervisor

I have worked with other training companies and found it to be more of a seller/buyer relationship than one of matching the right expertise to our business issues. That’s what LSA does – ask the hard questions, listen, and understand our business needs. We receive the benefit of their expertise from assistance with personal development plans to enhancing team performance, to looking at enterprise-wide challenges. It’s all about helping our business succeed as we grow. Right now, LSA is providing great ideas, a fresh approach, and valuable guidance as we develop our management team and accelerate our client relationship management results.

Kristin Westland-Kaune
Director, Team Development

The Next Generation Management Development courses have helped me communicate more effectively with my peers and teammates. By utilizing effective communication techniques such as clarifying and confirming, and asking open ended questions, I have been able to clarify and understand information in situations where I would have otherwise asked limited questions and made false assumptions.

Robert Breckner
Firmware Engineering Manager

We have been able to utilize LSA’s extensive network of top-notch resources to leverage our investment in employee development. The result has been the cost effective and highly efficient delivery of quality educational and management training programs.

Steve Feller
Vice President, Human Resources

Each program is preceded by an assessment of the participants. The course is then designed to fit the specific parameters and needs of the group. The highly interactive delivery is provided by recognized experts in their fields. On the spot coaching is provided during the program and each participant receives individual follow-up after the course. Courses can be delivered in-person or virtually. Given the nature of Cisco’s business and the way we operate, these remote workshops are a must for anyone who joins our company. Their work is eye opening. Great content and fantastic delivery.

Frank J. Kuypers
Business Development Manager

VNUS Medical has been very pleased with the effective management development programs that LSA Global has delivered for us over the last four years. The programs have been universally facilitated by experienced and best in class instructors. The knowledge gained by our management team has been put into practice very quickly. VNUS is very happy to be working in partnership with LSA because they consistently deliver excellent programs that receive exceptional feedback from our management team.

Cindee Van Vleck
Director Human Resources

We partnered with LSA Global to help us invest in our people in the areas of performance coaching, diversity, and inclusion. They focused on helping us succeed and were very flexible in meeting our specific needs. LSA Global exceeded my expectations from a speed, quality, and value standpoint. I would recommend LSA Global to anyone looking for a true business partner.

Anita Luckinbill
Director, Human Resources

LSA’s customized Effective Presentation Skills program has helped me elevate my presentation skills to the next level. I now have a much greater self-awareness of my presentation skills and can leverage off of my strengths while working to improve upon other areas. I would definitely recommend this solution to anyone for whom business presentations are an integral part of their job.
