We selected LSA Global over several other sales experts based upon their ability to clarify and align our sales strategy, their expertise in identifying the critical sales scenarios necessary to meet our growth targets, and their willingness to stand behind the results with targeted sales management training and coaching and a pay-for-performance guarantee.
They have become an integral part of my sales team as we rapidly scale. I would recommend them to any sales leader looking for a true partner.

LSA custom designed and delivered the best sales training session that I have ever attended.
They focused on our industry, our customers, and our competitors. The materials and facilitators were world class.
They were passionate about helping our global sales force understand the fundamentals necessary to be successful and not leave money on the table.

Director of Sales
We hired LSA to help align our sales strategy with our business strategy to sustain our hardware business while driving high growth in software and services. LSA’s ability to measure our level of strategic alignment, pinpoint areas of leverage and get the entire executive sales team to agree upon what matters most exceeded our expectations.
I would recommend them to any sales leader who wants to drive sales performance.
SVP Worldwide Sales
We partnered with LSA to help custom design, deliver, and measure an advanced new employee on-boarding process. It was well thought out and bought into by sales leadership. The combination of targeted sales tools, technology, coaching, performance plans, training, and reinforcement made all the difference. The solution quantifiably improved new employee and hiring manager satisfaction and increased the speed to sales quota for new hires.
I would highly recommend LSA Global for any sales enablement team looking to increase the engagement and speed to productivity of their sales force. We are excited to implement the program globally as we continue to scale.
Director, Global Sales & Technical Field Enablement
LSA was instrumental in making our worldwide sales meeting a success. They saved me a ton of time with ‘best in class’ solutions to meet our business objectives. Whenever I’m in a pinch, I can count on LSA’s dynamic team of sales trainers and consultants to really go the extra mile.
They truly understand the meaning of customer delight. Thank you!
ServiceSource has relied on LSA Global’s expertise for a variety of core initiatives, from strategy design and implementation, to business sales skills, to sales coaching. We recently engaged LSA Global to create a competency matrix for our inside sales team that will serve as our roadmap for employee on-boarding, development, succession planning, and retention.
This critical project had a tight timeline with high visibility. LSA Global completed the deliverable ahead of schedule and surpassed our expectations.
PMO and Outside Sales Operations
Senior Vice President
We originally engaged with LSA Global to help our subcontract administrators and buyers develop better negotiations skills. As manufacturers of satellites, we have many sole source companies to procure the required parts.
Our teams must be able to interact effectively with international companies. This environment uniquely challenges our team in their ability to create equitable contracts, while preserving and strengthening our supplier relationships.
LSA Global not only provided our team with the skills to negotiate effectively and consistently, but we further expanded our relationship to include consulting around our negotiations’ process, measurement of our negotiations, and one-on-one coaching for our team members. We are very pleased with the result of our partnership with LSA Global.
Vice President of Materiel
The sales negotiations training program was awesome. The facilitator was excellent. We are immediately able to see the relevance and apply it to our specific. The preparation and energy was very apparent. The facilitator did a great job keeping everyone engaged and focused on what mattered most to our success.
I am very pleased with the results and like the very relevant and applicable sales negotiations tools. Great job!
Vice President of Sales
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 sales 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 critical strategic actions to improve overall sales performance and then designed and delivered world class business sales training across the globe to help increase revenue and margin.
I’m so happy we took a more strategic approach to sales performance with LSA. Thank you for making this fit our culture.
Director Human Resources
LSA’s introduction and continuous reinforcement of the MEDRAD objectives, vision, and mission were very impressive. The majority now understands and is openly able to verbalize these key items.
LSA did a wonderful job introducing the importance of sales coaching and reinforcement and was able to keep everyone focused.
National Manager, Telesales
We turned to LSA Global to help us take our executive selling and solution selling skills to the next level.
Their ability to formally assess our sales situation, identify key sales skill gaps, develop a plan to measure the results, and fully implement a key sales initiative has been outstanding.
LSA delivers the full solution; not just sales training. I recommend them to any organization looking to transform its sales force the “right way” to sell higher and wider.
Director of Sales-Enterprise Accounts
We evaluated 6 well known sales development partners in the market. We ended up selecting LSA global because of their unique ability to get results selling solutions. They also had the strongest assessment, implementation, measurement, coaching, and global capabilities .
We’ve had such strong feedback from the executive selling program that there are requests to roll it out within the Marketing, Product Management, and our Leadership teams. Thank you LSA!
From beginning to end, LSA was as invested in making sure the program succeeded as we were. They not only met the needs of our sales organization, but they helped us meet our very tight launch deadline.
The consultant operated with the sense of urgency necessary to ensure that we were ready to roll the business sales training program in a way that made sense.
Without their dedication and sales expertise we would not have been able to launch the program with the success that we did. Thank you LSA for being a valued business partner!
