High Performance Environment Leadership Education Session

What it Takes to be a High Performance Leader

“Thank you for a unique and great High Performance Environment Leadership Education Session. The facilitator was brilliant, and we really enjoyed his style and personality. The team got a lot out of it (as did I). I believe it will help us create an even higher performance environment by ensuring we have a common understanding of our environmental structure and are all working towards the same goals. It really opened our eyes about a different way to lead.”
Simon Jefferson | Managing Director | AKQA

“The High Performance Environment Leadership Education Sessions combined with the strategy and executive coaching  work helped us to grow 48%, increase profits by 10% and close more than 50% of our deals over the last 12 months. Aligning our strategy, culture and talent is making all the difference.  Thank you LSA!”
Laurie Sewell | President & CEO | Servicon Systems

Successful leaders create the circumstances for their teams to perform at their peak.

Based upon over 20 years of high performance research with elite individuals and institutions such as Harvard, the U.S. Special Forces, Cisco, Accenture, MIT, NASA, and the Juilliard School, we know that there are over 70 actions available to leaders to improve organizational, team and individual performance. We also know that not all actions are created equally.  

Leaders must take different steps to improve performance depending upon their specific industry, business strategy, organizational culture and workforce. This unique and research-backed leadership workshop guides leaders through high performance research and teaches them how to set up their teams to perform at their peak.  

The research encompasses one-on-one interviews with many of the world’s pre-eminent leaders, thinkers, scientists, businessmen and women, sports champions as well as Nobel Prize winners, Samurai Masters and military leaders. We have also interviewed the leaders of world renowned high performance environments including Harvard, MIT, Juilliard, The Royal College of Music, Military Special Forces and NASA.

The culmination of all of this research provides a clear, compelling and practical way of explaining the specific circumstances that trigger improved performance in human beings. It is based upon 4 key leadership principles:

  1. People adapt or change when their environmental circumstances change.
  2. There are specific environmental circumstances that stimulate improved performance in people.
  3. The job of a leader is to facilitate the circumstances that stimulate peak performance.
  4. Regardless of how well an organization, team or individual is performing, there is always room for improvement.
