“The Consultative Partnering for Leaders workshop was crucial in helping our HR business partners work more strategically with their internal clients and stakeholders.

The skills and techniques greatly improved their ability to gain understand the situation, credibility, sell recommendations, and apply a strategic consulting process to get better results.”
SVP Human Resources | Fortune 1000 Technology Company

This two to three day facilitated working session engages and aligns executives to plan and lead major business transformation initiatives, using Consultative Partnering skills, techniques, and principles to drive change through effective leadership.

It provides a condensed version of the Consultative Partnering™ skills training to encourage a “top down” modeling of consulting behavior essential for organizations in transformation.

It guides the leadership team in developing the vision for change, assessing and developing readiness, identifying and addressing obstacles to change, solidifying their communication approach, and identifying the primary activities that ensure organizational development takes place and strategic goals are met.

Having taken on a new executive leadership role, one of my first calls was to LSA Global to help my leadership team to design, implement, and cascade clear strategic plans.  First, LSA helped our leadership team identify the strategy, culture, and talent areas that mattered most to create organizational alignment.

Then they helped facilitate the design of a strategic growth plan that is clear, compelling, believable, and implementable. We now have 100% commitment from an aligned leadership team and key stakeholders going forward.

I would recommend LSA to anyone who wants to create high levels of strategic alignment, growth, and performance.

LSA’s executive coach based his approach on understanding our business circumstances and strategy, as well as our leadership aspirations. The customized coaching covered all aspects of leadership; it was not simply a touchy-feely endeavor.

In fact, the focus on clear business outcomes and real life circumstances challenged me as a senior leader to develop my thinking and actions related to leading the business.”
