Situational Leadership® II Training and Consulting

How to Apply Proven Leadership Strategies to an Individual’s Unique Needs

“LSA’s approach and ability to bring the best consulting and training resources to eBay has been a great asset. They really focus on helping us succeed in any way they can and are very flexible in meeting our leadership, management and talent needs.”
Mike Normant | Learning & Development | eBay

“I had been working with LSA for many years with my prior company. Currently, I’m with a company who hadn’t done much basic leadership skills training. After identifying and presenting a Situational Leadership training program recently, our managers are excited and talking in the halls about the great experience.”
Phyllis Moracco | HR Director | JSR Micro

“We recently partnered with LSA Global to offer our Supervisors and Managers a customized two-day leadership training program. Everyone who attended said it was by far the best management training program they had ever attended. The content was rich and highly interactive. The case studies were relevant. Each participant walked away from the training much better equipped to lead their teams.”
Jeff Coon | Director of Human Resources | Cobham Sea Tel

“Thank you to LSA Global for your trusted partnership and consistent support in helping us to design and roll-out our valuable management development training program. I have personally partnered with LSA Global at four of my previous companies. It continues to be a delight working with LSA. We look forward to partnering with them for important leadership training and consulting needs.”
Suzanne Kinner | VP Human Resources | Blackhawk Network

The proven Situational Leadership® II Training and Consulting Model is the most frequently taught leadership training model in the world over the last 30 years.  It provides a proven road map for leading others in alignment with what they need to be successful. It teaches people in a leadership role, whether formally or informally, to effectively diagnose and manage the performance, capabilities, and motivations of others based upon the situation and the desired results.

In a nutshell, the tools and techniques help leaders, managers and individual contributors lead at a higher level.

Objectives:
The Situational Leadership® II Training and Consulting program:

  • Clarifies and aligns individual and organizational goals
  • Develops leaders who excel at setting goals, coaching performance, influencing others, and solving problems
  • Provides proven methods to monitor and improve performance
  • Improves the engagement and retention of top talent
  • Decreases employee attrition and absenteeism
  • Creates a shared and foundational leadership language

The Situational Leadership® II Training program emphasizes hands-on experience at diagnosing relevant leadership situations and practicing real-life application in a way that makes sense for you and your organization.

Participants discover how to minimize tension and frustration while mastering the skills of encouraging greater confidence, commitment, and motivation in others.

Target Audience:
Formal and informal leaders at all levels.

Instructional Design Attributes
The engaging instructional design combines relevant and experiential learning techniques with proven pre- and post-tools to effectively reinforce, measure, and transfer learning,  Targeted learning scenarios using real work problems capture learners’ attention and increase the speed of learning and adoption.

Video Dramas:
The program uses current and emotionally compelling videos that leverage Hollywood talent to draw learners into common management scenarios. The videos model effective peer-to-peer interactions as well as “match and mismatch” scenarios. They directly link content to practice and amplify the benefits and painful implications of using or not using critical Situational Leadership® II concepts.

Behavioral Outcomes:
Participants are pushed to the edge of their comfort zone by participating in challenging activities that require them to demonstrate their proficiency with key Situational Leadership® II concepts. Then they learn how to integrate the material back on-the-job and into their own personal leadership style.

Online Learning and Job Aids:

  • A new 35-minute online learning module enables managers to share what they have learned so everyone on their team is exposed to and can use the language of Situational Leadership® II.
  • Workshop participants have access to videos, game cards, conversation starters, and streamlined participant materials which include a new 12-module Situational Leadership® II Challenge, Situational Leadership® II Fitness Test and Worksheets.

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.

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.

Harmonic has worked with LSA for over 8 years. We have found their partnership extremely beneficial. We recently implemented a Management Development Program that was designed and customized to support our company’s strategic initiative of hiring, building, and retaining key intellectual property and human talent. We worked closely with LSA to target and implement the right solutions with the greatest impact. I would recommend LSA to any company that’s looking for a trusted training and development partner.

Our company engaged LSA to do a specialized “train the trainer” program, and the consultant’s performance outdid our exceptionally high standards for such a program. Very crucial to the success of this program was the work done upfront to discuss our needs and to interview key members of our organization so that the program specifically met our goals. Our facilitators continue to comment on the success of the program. Thanks also for the follow-up.

Since working with LSA, I’ve participated in a number of solutions ranging from Performance Management to Assertiveness Training – I’ve found that the quality of the resources is superior. They are well prepared and have definitely done a considerable amount of pre-work in order to customize our culture and business into the total learning experience – making it most beneficial for our employees.

We partnered with LSA to pilot a customized behavioral interviewing program to help ensure that we continue to hire the best and brightest as we continue to rapidly scale. LSA’s ability to understand our business and our unique culture combined with their desire to ensure that the best practices framework truly fits our performance environment and is highly adopted by our people is a real blessing. Most other firms want to just ‘give you training.’ Not LSA, they are focused on helping me hit our hiring forecasts and attract A players.
