Specialized Management Training Modules

Customizable Management Modules to Improve Targeted Areas of Performance

“LSA’s specialized management training modules have been a great asset. They really focus on helping us succeed in any way they can and are very flexible in meeting our talent needs.”
Mike Normant | Learning & Development | eBay

“I had been working with LSA for years. My current company hasn’t done much management training. After designing and delivering a customized program, our managers are excited and using the new tools. LSA always delivers high quality.”
Phyllis Moracco | HR Director | JSR Micro

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

Most managers never imagined that “being the boss” would be so difficult.  Too often, managers are asked to deliver results without the management knowledge, skills, or tools required to manage or lead a team successfully.  In addition, they find that it is not easy to manage the often conflicting expectations between direct reports, leadership, peers, and customers.

To help companies ensure that managers are set up to succeed, LSA offers specialized management training modules ranging from a few hours to a few days.  Depending upon your specific goals and situation, each can be customized and combined with our Foundational Management Training Programs for new and experienced managers to augment the management basics.

We engaged LSA to design and deliver a 6-month custom executive coaching program for a group of our key leaders. The focus of the program was to help a core group of senior leaders to leverage previous investments in management training, to ensure the engagement and retention of key employees, and to push critical strategic initiatives forward. Even with the high expectations of our senior people, LSA has completely exceeded our expectations. I would recommend them to anyone looking to create and implement a custom coaching methodology using proven tools to drive true change.

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.

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.
