“We engaged with LSA Global for sales coaching training to help our team identify opportunities to accelerate our commitment to sales excellence.  

The coaching and skill building workshops were adapted to our specific business dynamics and provided our sales and service reps with the models and tools to leverage on every customer call.”
Grant Clarke | Director Client Delivery | ServiceSource Corporation

“The sales coaching training enabled us to effectively position, bundle, and negotiate our newer high value offerings with our traditional services.  The sales team feels empowered to “take back the high ground” to be the market leader in our industry.

Our performance certainly reflects the value we are bringing to our customers.”
David Zavitz | Vice President Sales | Livingston International

There is substantial evidence that sales professionals who receive consistent sales coaching from managers and mentors achieve significantly higher levels of performance than those who receive little or no coaching.

In fact, recent McKinsey research found that top sales organizations commit 79% more time coaching their sales reps.  Our own research found that reps who are consistently coached outperform their peers 4-to-1 in terms of quota attainment.

Based upon more than 300 sales measurement projects involving organizations from 72 countries and a broad spectrum of industries, this coaching workshop is based upon the proven characteristics of high-performing sales managers and sales leaders.

As with professional athletes, the sales coach provides perspective and feedback that result in improved sales performance in terms of increasing revenue, meeting or exceeding quota, negotiating greater margins, having higher close rates, selling to executives, selling solutions, winning bigger deals, and achieving higher account penetration.

  • Do you have “B” and “C” players holding back sales performance?
  • Could your sales leaders use help to more effectively motivate their team members and equip them for success?
  • Would a formal sales coaching methodology lift your sales reps to a higher level of performance?
  • Are you lacking the sales tools and processes necessary to help your sales force succeed?
  • Would you like to improve the accountability and results of your sales force?
  • Are your sales leaders only coaching to the “lagging indicators” of performance?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then this proven workshop is for you.

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!

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.

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!

Stephanie Lucey
HR Manager

At the onset of our engagement with LSA, I was skeptical that an outside firm would be able to understand and dissect our organization’s highly complex and technical business challenges.

However, through the leadership team interview and strategy retreat processes that LSA utilized, they provided a fresh, innovative, and practical perspective that created tremendous strategic value and focus for our executive leadership team.

As a result, I would highly recommend LSA Global to any leader struggling with building the strategic alignment and high performance teams necessary to generate sales growth, in a way that fits their unique corporate culture.

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!”
