Assess & Prioritize

Is your organizational culture
an asset or a liability?

“We are developing a high performance environment and achievement-based culture. Without this unique high performance methodology to assess and align organizational culture, I would expect us to be behind our competitors.”

Shenaz Khan | GM People & Performance | BT Financial

Whether implicit or explicit, every organization has a current culture based on its legacy, its ways and its leadership.  The company culture, represented by how work gets done (especially when no one is looking) is a critical component in terms of strategy execution and performance.

Our organizational alignment research tells us that corporate culture accounts for up to 40% of the difference between high and low performing organizations.

In a nutshell, your organizational culture is either helping or hindering your ability to successfully implement your strategy .  It also determines your ability to effectively attract, engage and retain the top talent required to perform at your peak.

Aligned organizational cultures create positive momentum and cohesion that allow them to grow 58% faster, be 72% more profitable.  These aligned organizations also satisfy customers 3.2-to-1 and engage employees 16.8-to-1.  Unaligned cultures act as a debilitating drag on a company’s focus and ability to perform.

How aligned and effective is your culture in driving business results and attracting and retaining the right talent?  Assess and prioritize organizational culture to determine if your culture is aligned with your strategic aspirations.

We assess and prioritize organizational culture by combining targeted interviews with one of the following proven cultural assessment tools:

  1. A Research-Backed Organizational Culture Alignment Assessment that measures organizational wellness and identifies the top 10 cultural dimensions required to uniquely align your organizational culture with your business strategy.
  2. An Empirically Based Organizational Culture Assessment that benchmarks your organizational culture to others or industry best practices to pinpoint where you stand.
  3. A Customized and Research-Backed Organizational Alignment Survey that provides a snapshot of the level of alignment between your organizational culture, your talent and your business strategy.
  4. A Research-backed High Performance Environment Survey that enables leaders to quickly build a detailed picture of the current performance environment and accurately pinpoint key levers to improve performance.

Based upon the results, we work with senior leadership teams to identify the critical culture moves that will have the greatest impact on immediate business performance and long-term health.  The suggested actions are more than “nice to have” cultural characteristics.  They represent critical environmental factors to optimize business performance.

Please contact us if you want to better assess and prioritize organizational culture to get aligned with your corporate strategy.

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.

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.

LSA brought a very effective training design, and implementation approach to help us create a common language around our corporate training.

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.

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.

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.
