Leadership Development Training

How to measurably improve leadership skills and performance.

“I continue to be impressed by the level of leadership development training and management expertise and quality of advice and facilitation that LSA has to offer. What a smart and client-centric group of great people who really know how to help assess and develop high performing leaders.”
Tracy Esposito | Director | Zynga

“Thank you for a unique and great leadership development training session today. 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.”
Simon Jefferson | Managing Director | AKQA

Leadership development training can play an important role in a leader’s ability to succeed.  Whether it is executing the strategy, leading and managing change, leading their team, collaborating with others, or creating a high performance environment, leaders are expected to build, engage and inspire their team to peak performance.

To succeed, leadership development training programs must equip leaders with the knowledge and skills to impact business results.  Yet, a recent Leadership Study found that 97% of organizations surveyed site significant leadership skill gaps.  A whopping 40% of those surveyed say that those leadership skill gaps are acute. This does not surprise us.  Leaders are certainly struggling to keep up.

Once your strategy is clear enough and your high performance culture is aligned, we help leaders to build the skills and knowledge to succeed in five areas:

1.  Leadership Action Learning
Our customized Leadership Action Learning programs teach leaders the critical few skills required to succeed for your unique situation while getting real work done.  Leadership Action Learning allows participants to work on important business initiatives, in diverse teams, to both increase their leadership skills and measurably improve business performance.  This proven and award-winning approach closes the gap between theory and practice by enabling participants to immediately apply lessons learned to relevant business priorities rather than academic cases.

2.  Executive Coaching
Successful executive coaching takes a skilled professional using a disciplined process to provide observations, recommendations and tools to a business leader in order to improve that leader’s skills, capabilities and performance.  Typically we coach executives to improve performance, support or enable a promotion or to provide fresh insights and perspectives.

3.  Change Leadership and Navigation
Our customized Leading Change workshop is designed for executives, leaders, or managers who must effectively guide others through the process of change. It is ideal for organizations that are experiencing major or ongoing change and wish to engage and empower their people. Our customized Mastering Organizational Resiliency workshop is designed for individual contributors who are experiencing a major change, or ongoing change, in the workplace. Participants focus on ways to understand the phases of change, then learn and practice the skills needed to effectively assess the change and guide themselves through it in a more healthy and productive manner.

4.  High Performance Leadership Education Session
Based upon over 20 years of high performance research with elite individuals and institutions, we know that there are 72 specific actions available to leaders to directly improve performance.  We also know that not all actions have the same desired impact because each business strategy, organizational culture and workforce is unique.  This leadership workshop guides leaders through the unique high performance research and teaches leaders how to set up their teams to perform at their peak.

5.  Succession Planning
Our customized succession planning identifies future leaders and key contributors in the organization and creates targeted and practical development plans to ensure their readiness for future roles. The deliverables include action plans for developing your most strategic and senior-level talent. The process helps to identify who has potential and the critical few development areas for career transitions.

Our research-backed, proven and systemic approach to leadership development training helps leaders get everyone pointed in the right direction,  shape the performance environment for everyone to perform at their peak and build a differentiated workforce that creates a competitive advantage.

Ask us about Leadership Development Training Pay-for-Performance options and how to move the leadership metrics that you care most about.  Typical metrics that we move include:

  • Sales revenue, margin, win rate, portfolio mix, deal size, and sales cycle.
  • Customer acquisition, loyalty, growth, and satisfaction.
  • Leadership execution effectiveness of key corporate strategies.
  • Employee attraction, development, performance, engagement and retention.
  • Project cost, quality, and time.

We recently hired LSA to help us take our client delivery methodology to the next level as we continue to grow and help our clients succeed. The custom strategy and design session exceeded my expectations. They really understood our business and turned around the project within a tight timeframe. LSA’s consultants were the best I have seen for this type of project. LSA’s ability to get a group of 20+ executives from around the globe on the same page, push their thinking to new heights, and ensure an executable plan was excellent. I would recommend LSA to anyone looking to take their plans and execution to the next level.

It was a challenge to find a consultant with an approach to performance improvement that fit our unique culture and style. When we met with LSA we were surprised to discover their depth of expertise in the fields of motivation, developmental coaching and performance management and measurement.

Specifically, we were pleasantly surprised to find a company that could seamlessly integrate those three components without our folks feeling like the intervention was forced. They understood what we were trying to accomplish, helped us clarify our objectives, create a solid, refreshing approach that quickly got us moving and engaged people at all levels.

As they began to implement, I was thoroughly impressed with how they listened and made adaptations focused on our needs and business objectives. Overall, I couldn’t be happier that we found a partner in LSA.

We reviewed the top Leadership Development offerings for one of our Senior Research Scientists and selected LSA’s 12 month Leadership Program based upon the value and systemic approach. The feedback on the program, approach, and results was phenomenal. While the other programs better known, they were more theoretical and did not compare in terms of practicality, quality, and results.
