“We recently partnered with LSA Global to offer our Supervisors and Managers a customized two-day leadership training program. Everyone who attended said it was by far the best management training program they had ever attended.

The content was rich and highly interactive. The case studies were relevant. Each participant walked away from the training much better equipped to lead their teams.”
Jeff Coon | Director of Human Resources | Cobham Sea Tel

“Thank you to LSA Global for your trusted partnership and consistent support in helping us to design and roll-out our valuable management development training program. I have personally partnered with LSA Global at four of my previous companies. It continues to be a delight working with LSA.

We look forward to partnering with them for important leadership training and consulting needs.”

The proven SLII Experience™ II Training and Consulting Model is the most frequently taught leadership training model in the world over the last 30 years.  

It provides a proven road map for a situational approach to leadership focused on leading others in alignment with what they need to be successful.

It teaches people in a leadership role, whether formally or informally, to effectively diagnose and manage the performance, capabilities, and motivations of others based upon the situation and the desired results.

Unfortunately, 54% of leaders use only one leadership style, regardless of the situation.  Which means that 50% of the time, leaders are using the wrong leadership style to meet the needs of their people.  In a nutshell, this leadership program’s tools and techniques help leaders, managers, and individual contributors lead at a higher level.  

Objectives
The SLII Experience™ Training and Consulting program:

  • Clarifies and aligns individual and organizational goals
  • Develops leaders who excel at setting goals, coaching performance, influencing others, and making decisions
  • Provides proven methods to monitor and improve performance
  • Improves the engagement and retention of top talent
  • Decreases employee attrition and absenteeism
  • Creates a shared and foundational leadership language

The SLII Experience™ Training program emphasizes hands-on experience at diagnosing relevant leadership situations and practicing real-life application in a way that makes sense for you and your organization.

Participants discover how to minimize tension and frustration while mastering the skills of encouraging greater confidence, commitment, and motivation in others.

Target Audience
Formal and informal leaders at all levels who want to take a situational approach to leadership.

Instructional Design Attributes
The engaging instructional design combines relevant and experiential learning techniques with proven pre- and post-tools to effectively reinforce, transfer, and measure learning.  Targeted learning scenarios using real work problems capture learners’ attention and increase the speed of learning and adoption.

Video Dramas
The program uses current and emotionally compelling microlearning videos that leverage Hollywood talent to draw learners into common management scenarios. The videos model effective peer-to-peer interactions as well as “match and mismatch” scenarios. They directly link content to practice and amplify the benefits and painful implications of using or not using critical SLII Experience™ concepts.

Behavioral Outcomes
Participants are pushed to the edge of their comfort zone by participating in challenging activities that require them to demonstrate their proficiency with key SLII Experience™ concepts. Then they learn how to integrate the material back on-the-job and into their own personal leadership style.

Online Learning and Job Aids

  • A 35-minute online learning module enables managers to share what they have learned so everyone on their team is exposed to and can use the language of SLII Experience™.
  • Workshop participants have access to videos, game cards, conversation starters, and streamlined participant materials which include a new 12-module SLII Experience™ Challenge, Fitness Test, and Worksheets.
  • SLII Experience™ II Diagnosis Application for smart phones and mobile tablets that enables diagnosis and coaching in real-time.
