Sales Management Training that Works

“Originally, we launched a RFP to identify a solution selling and sales management training program provider to improve the skills of the sales teams in our global distributor network.

LSA Global challenged our thought process and helped us focus on the systemic factors that create a high performance sales environment first, before we focused on the more symptomatic needs of sales leadership skills training.

Their strategic approach and sales leadership programs are top notch.”

Kim Chaumillon | VP Global Talent Management | Trimble, Inc.

“This sales leadership philosophy and approach helped me find my voice as an account manager. It’s helped me consistently exceed both my professional and quota goals.

Blake Schlukbier | Global Sales Account Manager | Red Hat

Sales Leadership Excellence Is Critical to Drive Revenue
Based upon the assumption that front-line sales managers have the single greatest impact on a sales rep’s engagement and performance, this proven sales manager training program helps sales leaders to accelerate performance and change.

Our sales research found that sales reps who receive consistent and frequent sales coaching outperform their peers 4-to-1 in terms of sales quota attainment.

Unfortunately, we also found that most sales managers lack the leadership capability or time to effectively lead, manage, and coach their sales team.

Description
Every high performing sales organization has one thing in common — they develop and effectively coach their sales people.

They understand that to truly change behavior they must do more than create incentive plans, send their people to business sales training classes, and send out report cards at the end of the month.

Effective sales managers are effective sales leaders and coaches.

This sales management training program provides sales leaders and sales managers with a proven methodology and the associated skills required to move the needle and double their bandwidth by becoming a strategic sales leader and coach.

  • Desire

LSA Global demonstrated excellent expertise in sales and sales leadership, spent the time required to make sure the objectives were clear, and showed flexibility in shaping and sustaining everything that they did.

They “MEDRADized” the session to meet our unique needs, looked beyond the obvious, and got the key points across in a way that made sense.  Thank you!

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.

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.

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.

LSA’s customized Effective Presentation Skills program has helped us elevate our presentation skills to the next level. I personally now have a much greater self-awareness of my presentation skills and can leverage my strengths while working to improve upon other areas.

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.

We wanted our Channel Managers to get sales strategies and tools that would increase partner revenue and strengthen partner relationships. LSA Global’s ability to quickly understand our business and to bring experienced and proven resources to the table created credibility with both the executive and sales team.

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.

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.

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.
