Our relationship with LSA is extremely valuable.
We worked closely with LSA to customize critical Management Training Programs to meet our unique business needs.
I’d recommend LSA to any company looking for first class and high quality leadership and management training assessment, design, delivery, and follow-through.
Vice President of Human Resources
LSA’s approach and ability to bring the right leadership and management expertise and approach to eBay has been a great asset.
They really focus on helping us succeed in any way they can and definitely lifted up our leadership and management development capabilities.
Learning & Development
LSA’s customized Effective Presentation Skills program has helped us elevate our presentation skills to the next level. I personally now have a much greater self-awareness of my presentation skills and can leverage off of my strengths while working to improve upon other areas.
I definitely recommend LSA Global to anyone for whom business or sales presentations are an integral part of their job.
Senior Marketing Manager
I continue to be impressed by the level of leadership development training and management expertise and quality of advice and facilitation that LSA has to offer.
What a smart and client-centric group of great people who really know how to help assess and develop high performing leaders.
Our company engaged LSA to do a specialized “train the trainer” program, and the consultant’s performance outdid our exceptionally high standards for such a program. Very crucial to the success of this program was the work done upfront to discuss our needs and to interview key members of our organization so that the program specifically met our goals. Our facilitators continue to comment on the success of the program. Thanks also for the follow-up.
Chief Financial Officer
We have been able to utilize LSA’s extensive network of top-notch resources to leverage our investment in employee development. The result has been the cost effective and highly efficient delivery of quality educational and management training programs.
Vice President, Human Resources
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
LSA always delivers the right sales, management, and leadership programs at the right time to meet our unique needs. I especially appreciate their ability to deeply understand our business and our culture so that they can design the most valuable and impactful solutions.
Senior Project Manager
We engaged LSA to design and deliver a 6-month custom executive coaching program to help a core group of senior leaders to leverage previous investments in management training, to ensure the engagement and retention of key employees, and to push critical strategic initiatives forward.
Even with the high expectations of our senior people, LSA has completely exceeded our expectations. You can’t go wrong with LSA.
Senior HR Manager - Staffing, Training, & Development
LSA helped us design and deliver blended leadership solutions for our key leaders to help drive our growth plans in a way that aligned with our unique culture and values.
LSA understood our business, had deep expertise in the content areas, customized the leadership development programs to fit our specific needs, and delivered great results in alignment with our strategic priorities, culture, and performance management systems.
I highly recommend them to anyone looking to take their leaders and the performance of their teams to the next level.
Beth A. Taylor
Vice President of Human Resources
We consider LSA our true business partner.
I recommend them to anyone looking for a practical approach to drive true business and people results.
Michelle A. Mitchell
Vice President, Worldwide Human Resources
I consistently look to LSA Global when we need help.
I can always count on them to do a thorough needs analysis and to put together impactful and well-received leadership programs.
HR Program Manager
I had been working with LSA for many years across a few different companies.
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!
We recently partnered with LSA Global to offer our Supervisors and Managers a customized and experiential management training program.
Everyone said it was by far the best management training program they had ever attended.
The content was rich and highly interactive, and the case studies were highly relevant to our unique situation.
Each participant walked away much better equipped to lead their teams. Thank you LSA!
Director of Human Resources
We consider LSA Global the top outsourced learning and development partner.
I would highly recommend LSA to any company wanting to deliver high quality and practical learning solutions for their leaders and managers.
