“Definitely take this course! It’s a great investment of time and wonderful refresher. Even if you don’t think you do “presentations,” this class will help you think and speak more clearly and effectively in everyday interactions.”

“It’s great, definitely useful (no fluff), and everyone should take it. If you want to improve your speaking skills, it’s the best.”

We evaluated 6 well known sales development partners in the market. Late in the process we discovered an organization called LSA Global. We ended up selecting LSA global because of their unique model (bringing together best-of-breed organizations under 1 umbrella to deliver the best solution to meet a customer’s needs). Additionally, LSA had the strongest assessment, implementation, measurement, coaching, and global capabilities combined with an excellent program focused on true executive selling. We’ve had such strong feedback that the program has developed a buzz and there are requests to roll it out within the Marketing, Product Management, and Executive teams.

We engaged with LSA Global to deliver a sales territory planning and management workshop. LSA Global had a unique ability to quickly understand our business and needs. This keen understanding allowed for tailoring of content that was specific and impactful, which created a new awareness of how one’s role and how and with whom one spends their time, can directly influence sales success. Their facilitators were well prepared and ingrained themselves to become one of us. We’ve come to see LSA Global as a partner.

The introduction and continuous reinforcement of the MEDRAD objectives, vision, and mission was very impressive. By the end of the session, a large majority of the audience understood and was openly able to verbalize these items. LSA did a wonderful job introducing the importance of sales coaching and reinforcement and was able to keep the groups focused.

LSA Global demonstrated expertise in the sales leadership subject matter, spent the time to make sure the objectives were clear, and showed flexibility in shaping the session and sustaining it. Their facilitator “MEDRADized” the session, looked beyond the obvious, was enthusiastic, was able to keep people’s attention, made it enjoyable, and got the key points across.

We turned to LSA Global to help us take our executive selling and solution selling skills to the next level, which will ultimately help our customers succeed. Their ability to formally assess our situation, identify key sales skill gaps, develop a plan to measure the results, and fully implement a key sales initiative – has been outstanding. LSA delivers the full solution; not just sales training and I would recommend them to any organization looking to transform its sales force the “right way” to sell higher and wider.

We recently hired LSA to help us take our client delivery methodology to the next level as we continue to grow and help our clients succeed. The custom strategy and design session exceeded my expectations. They really understood our business and turned around the project within a tight timeframe. LSA’s consultants were the best I have seen for this type of project. 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 plans and execution to the next level.

We recently hired LSA Global to help take our sales team to the next level. Specifically we focused on targeting the ideal client, differentiating our solutions, getting more qualified leads, and closing a higher percentage of our pipeline through a proven referral selling methodology.

So far, the results from the business sales training have been great. We were pleasantly surprised with the results-oriented approach and thoughtful follow-through plan to ensure that the new sales practices “stick.” We look forward to a long-term relationship, and I would recommend LSA to anyone looking to increase the effectiveness of their sales force.

LSA Global’s negotiation training assessment and workshop provided sales negotiation tools and practices that have significantly enhanced our negotiations process. Their facilitators understood our business, its challenges and framed the learning in a way that we understood. I am very happy with the value we have received from this program, and would highly recommend LSA to others looking to improve their sales negotiations results.
