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

“The sales management and leadership training was phenomenal. The facilitator was excellent and exceeded expectations.  Just want we needed to take our sales team to the next level.

Paul Zytnik | General Manager | Duncan Parnell

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.  The implications are massive.  CSO Insights reports that nearly half of salespeople don’t hit their sales quotas.

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.

  • Sales desire

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.

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 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.

In an effort to establish a solid foundation of consultative selling skills for our client-facing teams that can be built on over time, we engaged with LSA Global. By understanding our business and our markets, LSA Global was able to design and deliver the relevant sales skills, tools, and processes that have established the foundation for our future success.

We are extremely satisfied with our decision to work with LSA.  Thank 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!

Erin Surprise

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.

Cindy Steffen
National Manager, Telesales

We needed a way to improve customer training. We had to reach a disparate group of people in a very short period time. LSA gave us a new training methodology and a better way to go to market with our customer training that improved their experience and our brand positioning.

LSA delivered exactly what we needed and exceeded our expectations.  Thank you.

Hinda Chalew
Vice President of Marketing

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.

The sales strategy and goal setting session was right on target. It was a very valuable process that I highly recommend to any sales team looking to increase performance.

LSA Global’s sales negotiation training and assessment process provided the sales negotiation tools and practices that have significantly enhanced our negotiations process. Their facilitators understood our business, its challenges, and framed the learning in a way that we understood.

I am very happy with the value we have received and would highly recommend LSA to others looking to improve their sales negotiations results.

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.
