Implement Key Moves

Key organizational alignment moves
to outperform your competition

Not all leadership moves are created equal. Organizational change is rarely easy.
Focus on what matters most.

“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 interview and workshop 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 growth, in a way that fits their unique corporate culture.”

Robert Laudati | Managing Director | Harris Corporation

“Thanks a million for the great strategy and organizational alignment session for our global leadership team. Your experience and patience to expertly deal with the inherent and complex challenges between products and sales uncovered many hidden truths that created a great roadmap for us to use as guidelines moving forward as a unified leadership team to implement key organizational alignment moves.”

Juan Plaza | Geospatial Sales Manager, Latin America | Trimble Navigation

When it comes to organizational alignment and strategy execution, we believe that focus is critical.  Once you have identified the strategic, cultural, and talent strengths and areas of misalignment across our nine dimensions

  • Strategic clarity, believability and implementation
  • Cultural understanding, consistency and leverage
  • Talent attraction, development and performance

it is time for your leadership team to identify and implement key organizational alignment moves – the critical few actions that, if taken, will result in the most dramatic impact on your business.

Based upon our proprietary 3x Alignment Survey, each strategy, culture or talent move is designed to maximize and balance both short-term performance and long-term organizational health.

When it comes to alignment and strategic execution, less is more. As a leader, you cannot afford to pay attention to more than the “critical few” areas that have the most strategic leverage.

Successful leaders set a high bar when it comes to prioritizing and selecting initiatives. They allow only the critical few initiatives that matter most to them and to their company to survive. This rigor creates a high level of leadership clarity and commitment. Greater executive commitment increases the likelihood of full implementation and strategic success.

This focused approach also allows executive teams to avoid the five common strategic execution traps listed by leaders that inhibit up to 90% of strategic plans:

  1. Being spread too thin
  2. Not compelling enough
  3. Lack of urgency
  4. Not enough time
  5. Not clear enough

Please contact us if you want to identify and implement key organizational alignment moves to grow revenue 58% faster, be 72% more profitable and engage employees 16.8-to-1.

This was an extremely effective executive strategy session that helped our executive team efficiently navigate through our core strategic objectives. It was exactly what we needed.  The approach was practical and valuable for our specific business and market. I would recommend LSA to anyone looking to push their strategic planning and growth to the next level.

LSA helped change our entire culture around meetings, making them more effective and efficient, thus enabling us to concentrate on driving more business.

Having a training outsourcing partner like LSA to support our talent management needs has been a real blessing. In an emerging company where typically you can’t afford the infrastructure necessary to provide a full range of offerings to meet the changing needs of an organization, having an external partner who understands our business and our culture and offers everything from a wide range of open enrollment programs to customized organizational development consulting is almost as good (and in some cases better than) having your own internal Training and Organizational Development function.

Chris Wells
Vice President, HR and IT

The action-learning leadership project has been very beneficial to me, our leadership team, and the entire organization. The balance of development and results has been excellent. We have made huge progress, and I was also able to identify 2-3 high potentials while having the extra benefit of people stepping up to carry strategic projects forward. The Staff is very appreciative and has become very comfortable with both the program and the process. It is still going better than anticipated, and I have been very pleased.

We turned to LSA Global to help take our behavioral interviewing process to the next level in terms of both efficiency and effectiveness. LSA quickly understood our unique culture and challenging requirements.  They immediately helped us to improve our ability to continue to hire top talent that fits our culture and talent management strategy as we rapidly scale.

The LSA customized Organizational Alignment Survey gave us a comprehensive view of how our employees experience our culture, talent and strategy.  Equally important, the survey and implementation process goes well beyond the typical engagement survey.  The systemic approach provided us with a great forum to discuss the strengths and opportunities in our organization, and then to quickly get focused on the key actions critical to executing our business and people strategies.

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 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 two strategic actions to improve overall sales performance and then designed and delivered world class sales training across the globe to help increase revenue and margin.  I’m so happy we took a more strategic approach to sales performance.

The experiential New Employee Orientation was an incredible success for over 2500 new hires in four years across the globe. They partnered with us to create an innovative solution on very short notice, and added a huge amount of value that isn’t reflected in their cost. We could never have done it without their unmatched combination of expertise, professionalism, and creativity that aligned everything with our unique culture. Even our experienced hires were blown away!

Working with LSA Global has proven to be extremely valuable and worthwhile. LSA understands our business, has deep expertise in content areas, and tailors the programs to deliver great results. The facilitator was extremely knowledgeable about Working Globally with India and her energy and passion made the session interesting, fun, and enjoyable for all that attended. The participants walked away extremely pleased along with highly useful practices and tools. I would highly recommend LSA Global to any company that has partners or offices in India.

It was a challenge to find a consultant with an approach to performance improvement that fit our unique culture and style. We were pleasantly surprised to discover LSA’s depth of expertise in the fields of motivation, developmental coaching and performance management and measurement.

LSA seamlessly integrated those components without our folks feeling like the intervention was forced. They understood what we were trying to accomplish, helped us clarify our objectives, and created a solid, refreshing approach that quickly got us moving and engage at all levels across the organization.Overall, I couldn’t be happier that we found a true strategy and implementation partner in LSA.

LSA brought a very effective training design, and implementation approach to help us create a common language around our corporate training. As a fast growing company with a geographically dispersed workforce, their expertise in this area was invaluable to us in driving consistency, creating a sense of belonging for our employees, and developing a common language for all of us to use.
