Build a Strong Culture of Employees with Super Powers

Build a Strong Culture of Employees

Want to Build a Strong Culture of Employees with Super Powers?
Do you have a clue about what genuinely engaged and aligned employees can do for your strategy, your culture and your brand? If not, listen up!

The Two-Fold Impact of Highly Aligned and Engaged Employees
Employees who are passionate about what they do and the company they work for can have an enormous two-fold impact. They positively influence:

1.  Internally – The way your business works and runs.

2.  Externally – The way your company’s products, services and brand are perceived by both current and potential customers.

These employees are not the monosyllabic caveman or even the competent looking businessman pictured above. They have super powers to become your most effective evangelists to the outside world and agents for positive change within your corporate culture.

If You Build a Strong Culture of Employees, You Will Enhance Your Brand
Highly aligned and engaged employees spread word of your brand, bring new customers to your door, generate an ever-higher level of current customer loyalty and woo new talent to the company they love. Not only can aligned and engaged employees be one of the most effective communication tools for your business, but super employees can also become your competitive edge in a very competitive market.

If You Build a Strong Culture of Employees, You Will Enhance Your Workplace Culture
We define culture as how things truly get done in an organization. And culture matters a lot.

Research by Harvard established that an effective culture can account for up to half of the differential in performance between organizations in the same business.  Our own organizational alignment research found culture accounts for 40% of the difference between high and low performing companies.

When your employees clearly understand and consistently model your desired corporate culture, you have super employees and are moving in the right direction.

Three Tips to Increase the Number of Super Employees
Here are some tips on how to take advantage of these super employees…first by finding them, next by understanding what it is they love about your company and services, and then how to increase their numbers. The key is to find them, learn from them and appreciate them.

1.  Find Super Employees
Identify what your best workers have in common. Are they from a similar demographic? What behaviors do they have in common? How did they arrive at their “super” status?

2.  Understand What Super Employees Love Most
The best way to find out? Ask them. The better you understand what attracts, engages and retains them, the better your opportunity to use them as the models for your culture.

3.  Create a Strategy to Multiply Super Employees
Make sure your top talent knows how much you value them. Salute their efforts with thanks and meaningful rewards. Then make sure everyone in your organization knows how much they contribute to your success.

The Bottom Line
If you build a strong culture of employees with super powers, they can become the flywheel for your business…a continuous power generator to maintain and increase your organization’s energy, growth and performance.

We partnered with LSA to pilot a customized behavioral interviewing program to help ensure that we continue to hire the best and brightest as we continue to rapidly scale. LSA’s ability to understand our business and our unique culture combined with their desire to ensure that the best practices framework truly fits our performance environment and is highly adopted by our people is a real blessing. Most other firms want to just ‘give you training.’ Not LSA, they are focused on helping me hit our hiring forecasts and attract A players.

Harmonic has worked with LSA for over 8 years. We have found their partnership extremely beneficial. We recently implemented a Management Development Program that was designed and customized to support our company’s strategic initiative of hiring, building, and retaining key intellectual property and human talent. We worked closely with LSA to target and implement the right solutions with the greatest impact. I would recommend LSA to any company that’s looking for a trusted training and development partner.

LSA custom designed a Management Development program that is absolutely “on target” for our technical managers. Their facilitator has done a superb job delivering the material in a way that is fast paced, highly interactive, and fun. She presents practical solutions to the people situations that our managers face every day. I regard LSA as an excellent partner that understands our business needs and a virtual member of our HR department.

Judith Onton
Vice President Human Resources

We contacted LSA to help us with customized management development. LSA worked with me to identify a solution that would meet our exact needs. We decided to start at the top and ran the program for our executive team. It was such a great success that we hope to roll it out companywide. We look forward to a long-term partnership with LSA Global and their team of experts.

Barry L. Byrd, SPHR
Human Resources Manager

We have worked with LSA Global for our learning and development needs and have always had great success. They helped us recently with customized Management Workshops that we held for the second time. It was fantastic, and I would highly recommend LSA to anyone that is attempting to get immediate and impactful improvements.

HR Manager, BU Radiology Informatics

LSA exceeded all my expectations. We interviewed 7 potential training and consulting partners and selected LSA due to their expertise, flexibility, and breadth and depth of solutions. We were able to construct a management training course from the modules most appropriate to our needs, and are able to provide additional training from their well developed portfolio of experts. Our managers galvanized as a team throughout the session and are better prepared for the rigors of a competitive market.

I highly recommend LSA Global to anyone who is looking to improve individual or organizational effectiveness through their top quality programs and broad range of expertise.

Greg Pappas
VP of Human Resources

We engaged LSA to design and deliver a 6-month custom executive coaching program for a group of our key leaders. The focus of the program was to help a core group of senior leaders to leverage previous investments in management training, to ensure the engagement and retention of key employees, and to push critical strategic initiatives forward. Even with the high expectations of our senior people, LSA has completely exceeded our expectations. I would recommend them to anyone looking to create and implement a custom coaching methodology using proven tools to drive true change.

LSA’s Employee Engagement Consulting and Survey work has provided critical visibility into: how well our people are holding up under the general economic environment, as well as, the specific challenges that face biotechnology companies in their efforts to discover and develop new medicines; their level of alignment and commitment to XOMA’s Vision and mission critical strategies; how leadership practices and management systems support an environment that engender commitment, and the specific actions that our leaders can take to improve on areas that are important to our people. I highly recommend LSA’s employee engagement solutions.

Congratulations on your pro-activity in establishing this program and developing such an effective New Employee Orientation course.

The Managing Virtual Teams program was extremely valuable. Your consultant/ facilitator’s fundamental knowledge of Synopsys as a company provided an incredible base to build upon while tackling the complications of managing and working with globally distributed teams. My team walked away walked away with highly useful practices and tools. It was an excellent use of our time.

Debra Martucci
Vice President, Information Technology

SeaTel has found our partnership with LSA Global to be very valuable and beneficial. We turned to LSA to customize a supervisory/leadership solution to meet our needs. LSA delivered a customized top quality solution. I’d recommend LSA Global to any company looking for a best-in-class training and consulting partner.

LSA’s customized Effective Presentation Skills program has helped me elevate my presentation skills to the next level. I now have a much greater self-awareness of my presentation skills and can leverage off of my strengths while working to improve upon other areas. I would definitely recommend this solution to anyone for whom business presentations are an integral part of their job.

LSA has been a tremendous asset to my portfolio, both at my current company and my past company. As an HR leader, I am always looking for ways to find external resources that can provide a solution to our management training needs. LSA does that for me. Their solutions are presented in a much more leadership-oriented manner so as to be crisp, business relevant, and easy to apply right back on the job. I will continue to augment our programs using LSA solutions.
