Currently, I’m with a company who hadn’t done much new manager training. LSA designed and delivered exactly what we needed at this stage in our life cycle.

Our managers are excited, talking in the halls about the great experience, and applying what they learned.

LSA makes things easy and practical for us.  Thank you!

A key to performance improvement is cultivating the proper type of motivation.

Since the performance management training, I have been much more focused on identifying and discussing how our actions in Engineering create value to IGT’s success.

The feedback has been very positive, the group appears to be more accountable for their actions, and victim loop reactions are less frequent.  Thank you!
