“I continue to be impressed by the level of instructional design consulting, overall expertise, and quality of facilitation that LSA has to offer. What an impressive group of great people that really focus on our needs.”
Tracy Esposito | HR & Training Manager | Sony

“We engaged with LSA Global to share best practices around Rapid Instructional Design and to develop, design and deliver an education session that taught our property owners the benefits of our Customer Loyalty program.  We found LSA Global’s team to be collaborative, insightful, prepared and nimble, especially given that the time frame for the project became compressed.  We look forward to continuing our strategic partnership.”
Annmarie Fairweather | VP Brand Service | Wyndham Hotels

“Thank you for the facilitation. Your insights flipped our approach from a content-driven design to one where business strategy and relevancy drives the leadership programs we aimed to redesign. This investment more than proved its worth – not only did it improve our leadership program redesign but also it was like a mini-seminar that stretched our L&D team’s thinking.”
Richard Morse | Senior Director Talent Development | Gilead Sciences

While there are many proven off-the-shelf learning solutions, we find that more and more clients are turning away from “what everyone else can get.”

They are leaning toward integrated offerings, custom designed solutions, and personalized implementations based upon instructional design best practices and preferred content.

Surprising to some, this approach can consistently lead to decreased costs (no licensing fees), higher quality (performance test-based), and faster implementations (weeks not months).

Our instructional design consulting solutions are a function of proven research-based methodologies, templates, and tools that focus on learning activities and desired performance results.

Because of this unique approach, our instructional design consulting solutions consistently result in the design of learning solutions faster, better, and therefore cheaper than our competitors. Our success is based upon the following tested principles:

  1. Continuous design that uses multiple resources and modalities
  2. Concurrent design that simultaneously conducts analysis, design, implementation, evaluation, and revision
  3. Creative design that requires and rewards learners to think innovatively based on a “performance test” which participants master
  4. Co-design that requires learners to take on the roles of subject matter experts, trainers, teachers, and evaluators

LSA offers a customized onsite Instructional Design workshop in support of our consulting services and train-the-trainer (T3) workshops to help increase facilitation skills.

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 experience was better than anticipated.  I could not be more pleased.

We looked to LSA Global as a consulting partner to help us explore innovative and scholarly approaches to promote employee engagement and sustain the unique culture we’ve built over the last decade.  LSA helped us perpetuate coaching as a discipline across the organization by integrating our core values, goal setting, and performance management.  We appreciate LSA’s commitment to cutting-edge practices to help keep us a step ahead during this time of rapid change.

LSA Global brought a fresh perspective to our behavioral based interviewing strategy for key executive positions that we needed to fill.  They helped us to develop questions that produced a much deeper understanding of candidates’ capabilities. Throughout the process LSA was also very responsive in dealing with short lead time requests.  Thank you!

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed working with LSA on the design and delivery of the experiential new employee on-boarding training. I’ve been getting tons of positive unsolicited feedback. You truly exceeded everyone’s expectations.

We partnered with LSA years ago.  Since then, our organization’s learning needs have increased, decreased, and increased again. The beauty of LSA’s business model is its flexibility and depth of their expertise.  When we need strategic or tactical outside help, we use LSA knowing that we can depend on outstanding quality advice and targeted solutions every time.

As a Training Outsourcing Partner, LSA consistently saves me time and money by understanding what matters to our strategy and what works in our unique culture. Their methodology and resources are fantastic and allow us to deploy better solutions faster. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to raise the talent bar with a true strategic partner.

Having a training outsourcing partner like LSA to support our talent management needs has been a real blessing. In an emerging company where typically you can’t afford the infrastructure necessary to provide a full range of offerings to meet the changing needs of an organization, having an external partner who understands our business and our culture and offers everything from a wide range of open enrollment programs to customized organizational development consulting is almost as good (and in some cases better than) having your own internal Training and Organizational Development function.

Chris Wells
Vice President, HR and IT

LSA brought a very effective training design and implementation approach to help us create a common language around our corporate training. As a fast growing company with a geographically dispersed workforce, their expertise in this area was invaluable to us in driving consistency, creating a sense of belonging for our employees, and developing a common language for all of us to use.

I’m not sure if I’ve run across a company that can match the depth and quality of LSA’s consultants and facilitators. I highly recommend LSA to anyone seeking a trusted training, coaching, and consulting partner to improve performance – at both a tactical and strategic level.

We have had a very beneficial partnership with LSA. Their recent Leadership Development Program helped us to identify, develop, and retain top leaders.
