Microlearning Library Client Testimonials

“Without the microlearning library training videos and support, our sales reps would never have come up with that idea. It led to $2 million in new sales.”
Scott Odom | VP Strategic Accounts | Clover Imaging Group EMEA

“The microlearning approach was an easy sell for me. We use them for team training and individual coaching. In our overall strategy, it is the most cost effective training we offer.”
Becky Helfter | Sr. HR Generalist | Pentec Health

How Microlearning Can Supercharge Sales and Leadership
As part of an overall training strategy,  a microlearning library can make a profound difference.  With over $120 billion spent annually on sales and leadership training, you would think there would be some measurable results.

Sadly, according to a recent Fortune survey, only 10 percent of CEO’s said that their leadership-development initiatives have a clear business impact.  Our own sales training measurement research found that only 1-in-5 sales reps changes their performance from stand-alone sales training.

To get different results, leaders and sales teams require a focus on single concepts that are research-based, highly applicable, and continuously reinforced.  That is where a Microlearning Library can help drive different results and help to reinforce and accelerate learning transfer.

Attributes of an Effective Microlearning

  • Short
    Effective microlearning modules are 5- to 7-minutes in length to encourage higher levels of engagement and improved retention.
  • Single Concept
    Microlearning modules focus on one concept to change one behavior thereby preventing the “cognitive overload” that comes with traditional long-form training.
  • Research-Based
    Effective microlearning is backed by credible academic and institutional studies on the psychology of influence and persuasion.
  • On-Demand and Self-Directed
    True learning takes self-initiative. Microlearning is available at any time, on any device for when you need it most.
  • Assessment Driven
    The best training focuses on identified and agreed upon individual and team skill gaps that matter most.
  • Supported with Tools and Job-Aids
    An effective microlearning library includes leader and learner support tools such as individual development plans, quizzes, facilitator and discussion guides, and a microlearning process to shares lessons, track progress, and measure results.

We turned to LSA Global to help take our behavioral interviewing process to the next level in terms of both efficiency and effectiveness. LSA quickly understood our unique culture and challenging requirements.  They immediately helped us to improve our ability to continue to hire top talent that fits our culture and talent management strategy as we rapidly scale.

This was an extremely effective executive strategy session that helped our executive leadership team efficiently navigate through our core strategic objectives. It was exactly what we needed.  The approach was practical and valuable for our specific business and market. I would recommend LSA to anyone looking to push their strategic planning and growth to the next level.

The LSA customized Organizational Alignment Survey gave us a comprehensive view of how our employees experience our culture, talent and strategy.  Equally important, the survey and implementation process goes well beyond the typical engagement survey.  The systemic approach provided us with a great forum to discuss the strengths and opportunities in our organization, and then to quickly get focused on the key actions critical to executing our business and people strategies.

Originally, we launched a RFP to partner with a sales training provider to improve the sales skills of our global distributor network. LSA Global challenged our thinking by suggesting we focus on the systemic strategy, culture and talent factors that create sales success before we invested in the more symptomatic needs of sales skills and knowledge. LSA Global identified the two strategic actions to improve overall sales performance and then designed and delivered world class sales training across the globe to help increase revenue and margin.  I’m so happy we took a more strategic approach to sales performance.

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.

Margie Bunting
HR Manager

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

We selected LSA Global over 5 other companies to help our key executives improve their overall communication and executive presentation capabilities. LSA exceeded our expectations.  I highly recommend LSA to any executive team looking to better organize and more effectively deliver key executive-level messages when the stakes are high.

Todd Power
Office of the CEO

We have found LSA to be highly responsive to meeting our unique needs in learning and development. Their passion for high levels of business relevancy, customer satisfaction and quality align very closely with our core values.  Kudos to LSA Global.  They delivered exactly what I wanted under ever-changing conditions.

We hired LSA to design and deliver a Project Post Mortem for sixty five key people on a mission critical project with a very tight turnaround. LSA’s ability to identify the key trends, leverage points, and next steps was remarkable. They really got to the heart of the issues in a constructive and unbiased manner that exceeded our expectations. It was not an easy task with so many skeptical people with different agendas, styles, experience, and perspectives.

It was a challenge to find a consultant with an approach to performance improvement that fit our unique culture and style. We were pleasantly surprised to discover LSA’s depth of expertise in the fields of motivation, developmental coaching, performance management, and measurement.

LSA seamlessly integrated those components without our folks feeling like the intervention was forced. They understood what we were trying to accomplish, helped us clarify our objectives, and created a solid, refreshing approach that quickly got us moving and engaged at all levels across the organization.  Overall, I couldn’t be happier that we found a true strategy and implementation partner in LSA.

We reviewed the top Leadership Development offerings and selected LSA’s 12-month Leadership Program based upon the value and systemic approach. The feedback on the program, approach, and results was phenomenal. While other programs may be better known, they were more theoretical and did not compare in terms of practicality, quality, and results.

We recently hired LSA to help us take our client delivery methodology to the next level as we continue to grow and help our clients succeed. The custom strategy and design session exceeded our expectations. They really understood our business and delivered within tight time frames.  They were the best I have seen for this type of complex, visible, and strategic work. LSA’s ability to get a group of 20+ executives from around the globe on the same page, push their thinking to new heights, and ensure an executable plan was excellent. I would recommend LSA to anyone looking to take their strategy and strategic execution to the next level.

We selected LSA over a handful of other experts to assist with a key sales leadership imperative. LSA added value every step of the way throughout the entire engagement. Their customized approach to sales presentation training exceeded expectations, and we are excited about global implementation across our offices in more than 100 countries. LSA’s unique Strategy-to-Results approach is an added game changer.  I recommend them to anyone looking to get high quality results when it matters most.

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.  They provide a results driven plan – not just a temporary fix. They are great to work with, and even more importantly, they “get it!”
