Successful leaders create the circumstances for their teams to perform at their peak.

Based upon over 20 years of high performance research with elite individuals and institutions such as Harvard, the U.S. Special Forces, Cisco, Accenture, MIT, NASA, and the Juilliard School, we know that there are over 70 actions available to leaders to improve organizational, team and individual performance. We also know that not all actions are created equally.  

Leaders must take different steps to improve performance depending upon their specific industry, business strategy, organizational culture and workforce. This unique and research-backed leadership workshop guides leaders through high performance research and teaches them how to set up their teams to perform at their peak.  

The research encompasses one-on-one interviews with many of the world’s pre-eminent leaders, thinkers, scientists, businessmen and women, sports champions as well as Nobel Prize winners, Samurai Masters and military leaders. We have also interviewed the leaders of world renowned high performance environments including Harvard, MIT, Juilliard, The Royal College of Music, Military Special Forces and NASA.

The culmination of all of this research provides a clear, compelling and practical way of explaining the specific circumstances that trigger improved performance in human beings. It is based upon 4 key leadership principles:

  1. People adapt or change when their environmental circumstances change.
  2. There are specific environmental circumstances that stimulate improved performance in people.
  3. The job of a leader is to facilitate the circumstances that stimulate peak performance.
  4. Regardless of how well an organization, team or individual is performing, there is always room for improvement.

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 and 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 engage at all levels across the organization.Overall, I couldn’t be happier that we found a true strategy and implementation partner in LSA.

The action-learning leadership project has been very beneficial to me, our leadership team, and the entire organization. The balance of development and results has been excellent. We have made huge progress, and I was also able to identify 2-3 high potentials while having the extra benefit of people stepping up to carry key strategic projects forward. The Staff is very appreciative and has become very comfortable with both the program and the process. The experience was better than anticipated.  I could not be more pleased.

We signed up with LSA early on – as their 22nd Member! Since then, our organization’s learning needs have increased and decreased and increased again with the changing times. The beauty of the LSA business model is its flexibility.  When we need to supplement our own internal skills or resources, we use LSA knowing that we can depend on outstanding quality advice and solutions every time.

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.

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.
