I’ve partnered with LSA Global at two companies now, and I consider them a valuable and trusted partner. They always design and deliver just the right solution and have wonderful facilitators that match your company’s unique culture and style of management. I would highly recommend LSA for high quality learning solutions with true experts who have your best interests at heart.
We partnered with LSA Global to help us invest in our people. LSA custom designed an impactful management curriculum to help upskill our key managers and leaders.
We consider LSA to be our trusted learning and development partner and a valued extension of our team as we rapidly scale. Thank you LSA!
SVP Human Resources
LSA Global has been a great partner in helping us move toward being “the leading developer of talent in the service performance management industry.”
They have consistently met or exceeded my (very) high expectations and are always responsive to my needs to increase performance, engagement, customer satisfaction, and sales growth.
Senior Director, Training & Development
Harmonic has worked with LSA for over 8 years. We have found their partnership extremely beneficial.
We recently implemented customized Management Development Programs designed to support our company’s strategic initiative of hiring, building, and retaining key intellectual property and human talent. It has had the greatest impact.
I would recommend LSA to any company that’s looking for a trusted training and development partner to take their leaders and managers to the next level.
Director of Human Resources
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!
Mechanical, HW Engineering Director
For our go to training outsourcing partner, LSA provides exactly what we want and need – which is not an easy task.
Director, Organizational Excellence & Development
I appreciate that each management development program is preceded by a thorough training needs assessment of the participants that informs a design to fit the specific parameters and needs of the group.
The highly interactive delivery is provided by recognized experts in their fields. On the spot coaching is provided during the program and each participant receives individual follow-up after the course.
Courses can be delivered in-person or virtually.
Given the nature of Cisco’s business and the way we operate, these remote workshops are a must for anyone who joins our company. Their work is eye opening. Great content and fantastic delivery.
Frank J. Kuypers
Business Development 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!
Avon’s success is dependent on strong relationships among our Customers, Representatives, Associates, and outside resources we hire to help us meet our business objectives.
We were very pleased with the results from working with LSA Global to design and facilitate a custom management training program for our events management team focused on decision making and delegation.
LSA demonstrated responsiveness, flexibility, and a highly innovative approach to working with us.
Senior Manager, HR Destiny Sales Region
LSA helped us with leadership development by designing a solution to match our unique needs and culture.

LSA consistently delivers excellent results and receives exceptional feedback. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to improve management capabilities.
Cindee Van Vleck
Director 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
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.
