“You have become our premier change leadership strategic partner. Your expertise in the human side of change is unparalleled and enabled our company to successfully implement our ERP Solution.”
Ted Ramlet | CIO & SVP | McKesson

Description:
Most organizations are in a constant state of change, and it is often those reporting to frontline managers that feel it the most. While some people adapt quickly, others can get stuck. If not managed effectively, change initiatives can significantly impact productivity. Managers who are effective at facilitating their teams and individuals through change are able to maintain high levels of productivity while facilitating the effective implementation of strategic initiatives.

Objectives:

  • Provide managers with a descriptive model of change.
  • Provide managers a framework of change that enables them to diagnose an individual’s current change stage and identify tactics for facilitating the individual through the stage.
  • Introduce guidelines for facilitating change and building trust.
  • Develop tactics for overcoming challenges in using the Stages of Change Model and the Diagnostic Tool.
  • Develop conceptual comprehension of the Stages of Change Model & Diagnostic Tool.
  • Develop comprehension of the Trust material.

Frameworks and Tools:

  • Stages of Change—a framework for how change affects and influences people. Provide a model for explaining the different stages people experience as they undergo a change, and establish a context for facilitating people through those different stages.
  • A Stage of Change Diagnostic—provides a means for the manager to understand the change stage his/her group and each individual is at.
  • Trust Model—helps the manager maintain/build trust while facilitating their people through change.
  • Guidelines —for building trust and facilitating change.

Learning / Facilitation Approach:
This program uses an experiential approach that focuses on developing a familiarization with change management and guidelines for building trust.

Participants are introduced to the concepts of change by an activity that simulates a constant state of change. Rules change, goals change, keep-sakes change, and actions change. Participants are assigned a challenge they may face in applying the Change Stages. Teams discuss the challenge and develop as many strategies for overcoming it as possible. Quiz sessions are used to force participants to come up with questions—and answers.

The benefits of this approach include:

  • Accelerating change adoption and execution of strategy and corporate initiatives.
  • Maintaining high levels of engagement and productivity during change initiatives.
  • Reducing stress on individuals and the organization during periods of change.

Target Audience:
Frontline managers and supervisors.

Great job in designing the Mergers and Acquisition strategy session for our global leadership team. The session was excellent. I gained additional insight on the importance of the role of HR regarding strategy, culture, and people in Mergers and Acquisitions.

LSA consistently delivers for me and my team.  Recently they demonstrated the criticality for executives to look beyond current ethics topics and focus on applying fundamental values in everything they do to demonstrate true leadership. They successfully delivered in two hours what most leadership development facilitators would spend an entire day trying to communicate.

As a high growth digital marketing agency with cutting edge talent, we hired LSA Global to help clarify our strategy and work with our executive leadership team to help implement strategic changes in a way that made sense for our unique culture. The work was so successful that we also hired them to coach our key leaders. LSA has been instrumental in helping us transition to a new leadership team and triple revenue. In this age of useless consultants, I highly recommend their practical and business-oriented approach to strategy, culture, and talent.

We turned to LSA to help us custom design and deliver a leadership and management development curriculum to help drive performance. They have done an excellent job diagnosing the business situation, designing an approach that fits our culture, and delivering a first class solution.

Sally Buchannan

We reviewed the top Leadership Development offerings and selected LSA’s 12-month Leadership Program based upon the value and systemic approach. The feedback on the program, approach, and results was phenomenal. While other programs may be better known, they were more theoretical and did not compare in terms of practicality, quality, and results.

We selected LSA Global over 5 other companies to help our key executives improve their overall communication and executive presentation capabilities. LSA exceeded our expectations.  I highly recommend LSA to any executive team looking to better organize and more effectively deliver key executive-level messages when the stakes are high.

Todd Power
Office of the CEO

It was a challenge to find a consultant with an approach to performance improvement that fit our unique culture and style. We were pleasantly surprised to discover LSA’s depth of expertise in the fields of motivation, developmental coaching, performance management, and measurement.

LSA seamlessly integrated those components without our folks feeling like the intervention was forced. They understood what we were trying to accomplish, helped us clarify our objectives, and created a solid, refreshing approach that quickly got us moving and engaged at all levels across the organization.  Overall, I couldn’t be happier that we found a true strategy and implementation partner in LSA.

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 to develop my thinking and actions related to leading the business.”
