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.

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!

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 gave LSA a very short deadline to customize an important management training program to meet our unique requirements.
