Client Case Study
This global Fortune 500 technology and services company wanted to identify the top “money making” sales skills required to execute their new go-to-market strategy so that they could invest wisely in the training and development of their 250+ person sales force.
The company wanted to:
What a refreshing change from the half-baked psycho-babble you normally get from training and consulting organizations. LSA gives you the practical and results-oriented assistance you need to define and reach your goals.
Their leadership, management, and sales expertise has been invaluable. They think strategically and provide a results driven plan – not just a temporary fix.
They are great to work with, and even more importantly, they “get it!”
Director of Merchandising
At the onset of our engagement with LSA, I was skeptical that an outside firm would be able to understand and dissect our organization’s highly complex and technical business challenges.
However, through the leadership team interview and strategy retreat processes that LSA utilized, they provided a fresh, innovative, and practical perspective that created tremendous strategic value and focus for our executive leadership team.
As a result, I would highly recommend LSA Global to any leader struggling with building the strategic alignment and high performance teams necessary to generate sales growth, in a way that fits their unique corporate culture.
LSA Global demonstrated excellent expertise in sales and sales leadership, spent the time required to make sure the objectives were clear, and showed flexibility in shaping and sustaining everything that they did.
They “MEDRADized” the session to meet our unique needs, looked beyond the obvious, and got the key points across in a way that made sense. Thank you!
North America Sales Training Manager
We originally engaged with LSA Global to help our subcontract administrators and buyers develop better negotiations skills. As manufacturers of satellites, we have many sole source companies to procure the required parts.
Our teams must be able to interact effectively with international companies. This environment uniquely challenges our team in their ability to create equitable contracts, while preserving and strengthening our supplier relationships.
LSA Global not only provided our team with the skills to negotiate effectively and consistently, but we further expanded our relationship to include consulting around our negotiations’ process, measurement of our negotiations, and one-on-one coaching for our team members. We are very pleased with the result of our partnership with LSA Global.
Vice President of Materiel
The sales strategy and goal setting session was right on target. It was a very valuable process that I highly recommend to any sales team looking to increase performance.
Thank you LSA Global!
Senior Vice President of Sales
Originally, we launched a RFP to partner with a sales training provider to improve the sales skills of our global distributor network.
LSA Global challenged our thinking by suggesting we focus on the systemic sales strategy, culture, and talent factors that create sales success before we invested in the more symptomatic needs of sales skills and knowledge.
LSA Global identified the critical strategic actions to improve overall sales performance and then designed and delivered world class business sales training across the globe to help increase revenue and margin.
I’m so happy we took a more strategic approach to sales performance with LSA. Thank you for making this fit our culture.
Director Human Resources
We turned to LSA Global to help us take our executive selling and solution selling skills to the next level.
Their ability to formally assess our sales 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. I recommend them to any organization looking to transform its sales force the “right way” to sell higher and wider.
Director of Sales-Enterprise Accounts
ServiceSource has relied on LSA Global’s expertise for a variety of core initiatives, from strategy design and implementation, to business sales skills, to sales coaching. We recently engaged LSA Global to create a competency matrix for our inside sales team that will serve as our roadmap for employee on-boarding, development, succession planning, and retention.
This critical project had a tight timeline with high visibility. LSA Global completed the deliverable ahead of schedule and surpassed our expectations.
PMO and Outside Sales Operations
Senior Vice President
LSA is an excellent sales and leadership outsource partner! They listen to our needs, are responsive, and work at a pace that keeps up with our rapid speed.
We have found LSA to bring strategic, innovative, and practical solutions to meet our business priorities by partnering effectively with our key staff. I consider them to be an important external extension of our team.
Sr. Director, Global Sales Enablement
Seagate has always found LSA to be a highly valuable consulting, training, and coaching resource.
The recent business sales training programs they’ve delivered for Seagate University have been the right solution, of highest of quality, and highly customized to our unique business and culture.
I would highly recommend LSA to any company interested in offering top notch learning solutions that make a difference.
Sales, Marketing & Customer Service
We selected LSA Global over several other sales experts based upon their ability to clarify and align our sales strategy, their expertise in identifying the critical sales scenarios necessary to meet our growth targets, and their willingness to stand behind the results with targeted sales management training and coaching and a pay-for-performance guarantee.
They have become an integral part of my sales team as we rapidly scale. I would recommend them to any sales leader looking for a true partner.
SVP, Sales North America
We partnered with LSA to help custom design, deliver, and measure an advanced new employee on-boarding process. It was well thought out and bought into by sales leadership. The combination of targeted sales tools, technology, coaching, performance plans, training, and reinforcement made all the difference. The solution quantifiably improved new employee and hiring manager satisfaction and increased the speed to sales quota for new hires.
I would highly recommend LSA Global for any sales enablement team looking to increase the engagement and speed to productivity of their sales force. We are excited to implement the program globally as we continue to scale.
Director, Global Sales & Technical Field Enablement
From beginning to end, LSA was as invested in making sure the program succeeded as we were. They not only met the needs of our sales organization, but they helped us meet our very tight launch deadline.
The consultant operated with the sense of urgency necessary to ensure that we were ready to roll the business sales training program in a way that made sense.
Without their dedication and sales expertise we would not have been able to launch the program with the success that we did. Thank you LSA for being a valued business partner!
PHR, Manager - L & D
LSA Global’s sales negotiation training and assessment process provided the 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 and would highly recommend LSA to others looking to improve their sales negotiations results.
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 our expectations. They really understood our business and delivered within tight time frames. They were the best I have seen for this type of complex, visible, and strategic work.
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 strategy and strategic execution to the next level.
