Implement Key Moves

Key organizational alignment moves
to outperform your competition

Not all leadership moves are created equal. Organizational change is rarely easy.
Focus on what matters most.

“Thanks a million for the great strategy and organizational alignment session for our global leadership team. Your experience and patience to expertly deal with the inherent and complex challenges between products and sales uncovered many hidden truths that created a great roadmap for us to use as guidelines moving forward as a unified leadership team to implement key organizational alignment moves.”

Juan Plaza | Geospatial Sales Manager, Latin America | Trimble Navigation

When it comes to organizational alignment and strategy execution, we believe that focus is critical.  Once you have identified the strategic, cultural, and talent strengths and areas of misalignment across our nine dimensions

  • Strategic clarity, believability and implementation
  • Cultural understanding, consistency and leverage
  • Talent attraction, development and performance

it is time for your leadership team to identify and implement key organizational alignment moves – the critical few actions that, if taken, will result in the most dramatic impact on your business.

Based upon our proprietary 3x Alignment Survey, each strategy, culture or talent move is designed to maximize and balance both short-term performance and long-term organizational health.

When it comes to alignment and strategic execution, less is more. As a leader, you cannot afford to pay attention to more than the “critical few” areas that have the most strategic leverage.

Successful leaders set a high bar when it comes to prioritizing and selecting initiatives. They allow only the critical few initiatives that matter most to them and to their company to survive. This rigor creates a high level of leadership clarity and commitment. Greater executive commitment increases the likelihood of full implementation and strategic success.

This focused approach also allows executive teams to avoid the five common strategic execution traps listed by leaders that inhibit up to 90% of strategic plans:

  1. Being spread too thin
  2. Not compelling enough
  3. Lack of urgency
  4. Not enough time
  5. Not clear enough

Please contact us if you want to identify and implement key organizational alignment moves to grow revenue 58% faster, be 72% more profitable and engage employees 16.8-to-1.

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.

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.

The LSA customized Organizational Alignment Survey gave us a comprehensive view of how our employees experience our culture, talent and strategy.  Equally important, the survey and implementation process goes well beyond the typical engagement survey.  The systemic 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 executing our business and people strategies.

Originally, we launched a RFP to partner with a sales training provider to improve the sales skills of our global distributor network. However, throughout the process, LSA Global challenged our thinking by suggesting we focus on the systemic factors that create a high performance environment first, before we focused on the more symptomatic needs of sales training. LSA Global identified the two strategic moves that will enable us to improve performance and set the sales training up for sustainable success.

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.

The action-learning leadership project has been very beneficial to me, our leadership team, and the entire organization. The balance of development and results has been excellent. We have made huge progress, and I was also able to identify 2-3 high potentials while having the extra benefit of people stepping up to carry strategic projects forward. The Staff is very appreciative and has become very comfortable with both the program and the process. It is still going better than anticipated, and I have been very pleased.

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.

They partnered with us to create an innovative solution on very short notice, and added a huge amount of value that isn’t reflected in their cost. We could never have done it without their unmatched combination of expertise, professionalism, and creativity that aligned everything with our unique culture. Even our experienced hires were blown away!
