Educate Senior Leaders

Becoming a 21st century leader.

Organizational alignment starts at the top.

“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 leaders and execution to the next level.”
Rob Sturgeon | Executive Vice President | ServiceSource

Senior leaders must focus on and prioritize the key strategic areas that drive value and success:

  • financials
  • markets
  • customers
  • products & services
  • talent

While the organization’s performance culture may receive some attention, we find that leaders often do not fully understand or appropriately leverage their culture to align with their business strategy and talent.

Yet, in the 21st century, to be competitive in the both the short and long-term, aligning culture and talent with strategy is a leadership imperative. Especially during periods of intense change, leaders must design work environments that inspire exceptional individual performance and organizational results.

We engage leaders in very direct business discussions based upon exhaustive research to quickly demonstrate how culture and talent development are not simply the “soft stuff,” but the critical connective tissue that creates and sustains business success.

These education discussions are quickly understood as intuitively correct and strategically significant. They challenge a new way to think, plan, act, and measure.

After all, high performing companies possess the same characteristics as successful sports teams: a vision for success, great talent, team cohesion, consistent results, excellent leadership, and strong ties to their customers.

The results may seem magical at times, yet we know that winning results in sports and business are accessible. It is the magic that comes from very practical and integrated leadership that weaves culture, talent, and strategy together to create a high performing environment.

Please contact us if you want to take your senior leaders to the next level.

LSA has a very unique and powerful methodology regarding learning and learning strategy. LSA’s ability to overcome skepticism, obtain executive support, and create an aligned learning strategy that provides measurable business impact is second to none. They partner with you to understand your goals, flex to your needs, and solve your problems – all within your budget. They certainly help make my job easier and are a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend LSA to anyone trying to connect the dots between strategy, skills, knowledge, and results.

I have worked with LSA Global at previous companies and welcomed the opportunity to bring them in to support my new organization. We worked closely with LSA to design a solution for our Client Partner Teams and Management Training on both coasts. LSA designed a customized solution for our business and organizational culture. LSA is a quality organization, one that I’d recommend to any company looking for a first class training and consulting partner that makes an impact.

LSA brought a very effective training design, and implementation approach to help us create a common language around our corporate training. As a fast growing company with a geographically dispersed workforce, their expertise in this area was invaluable to us in driving consistency, creating a sense of belonging for our employees, and developing a common language for all of us to use.

Originally, we launched a RFP to identify and partner with a sales training provider to improve the skills of the sales teams in the distributor network. However, throughout the process, LSA Global challenged our thought processes and engaged with us by suggesting that we focus on the systemic factors that create a high performance environment first, before we focused on the more symptomatic needs of sales skills training. LSA Global has identified the two strategic moves that will enable us to create a high performance environment and we continue to seek their guidance on implementing those moves, as well as other key needs.

I’ve been associated with LSA for the last 8 years and have found them to be an extremely professional, well managed full service training organization. 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.

Working with LSA Global has proven to be extremely valuable and worthwhile. LSA understands our business, has deep expertise in content areas, and tailors the programs to deliver great results. The facilitator was extremely knowledgeable about Working Globally with India and her energy and passion made the session interesting, fun, and enjoyable for all that attended. The participants walked away extremely pleased along with highly useful practices and tools. I would highly recommend LSA Global to any company that has partners or offices in India.

We hired LSA Global to design and deliver a customized outdoor experiential new employee orientation program for our recent group of MBA new hires. The program designed helped reinforce WIPRO core values. The program will help the new MBA hires to build relationships with fellow associates and enhance the group’s ability to operate successfully in the global world. I recommend LSA for effective on boarding/outward bound training of new MBA hires.

Redwood Trust looked to LSA Global as a consulting partner to help us explore innovative and scholarly approaches to promote employee engagement and sustain the unique culture we’ve built over the last decade.

LSA helped us perpetuate coaching as a discipline across the organization by integrating our core values, goal setting and performance measurement metrics under an interactive coaching program.

We appreciate LSA’s commitment to cutting-edge practices and keeping us in step with the progressive front of our rapidly changing workplace environment.

The LSA Organizational Alignment Survey gave us a comprehensive and poignant view of how our employees experience our culture, talent and strategy.  LSA customized the questions so we received information that was targeted and very useful to us.  Equally important, the survey and implementation process goes well beyond the typical engagement survey.  The combination of questions and feedback approach provided us with a great forum to discuss the strengths and opportunities in our organization, and then to quickly get focused on the key actions critical to our strategy implementation and improving our business results.

Having a training outsourcing partner like LSA to support our training and development needs has been a real benefit. In an emerging company where typically you can’t afford the infrastructure necessary to provide a full range of development venues to meet the broad needs of an organization, having an external partner who understands our business and our culture and offers everything from a wide range of open enrollment programs to customized organizational development consulting is almost as good (and in some cases better than) having your own internal Training and Organizational Development function.
