The potential impact of your workforce on your business is dramatic.
“LSA’s ability to assess and develop training has been a critical resource for me to help our teams to perform at their peak.
I love that LSA focuses on training that truly makes a meaningful impact on the people and the business.”
Noelle VanVlierbergen | Sr. HR Business Partner | Apple Inc.
How you assess and develop talent matters. Research shows that less than one-third of companies that achieve success are able to maintain it over decades. Even companies that create a strong strategic position struggle to protect it for long periods of time.
According to McKinsey, executives report five times more productivity when their people are firing on all cylinders and performing at their peak. Our own organizational alignment research tells us that a company’s ability to attract, develop, engage and retain talent accounts for up to 29% of the difference between high and low performing organizations in terms of revenue growth, profitability, leadership effectiveness, customer loyalty, and employee engagement.
How do you beat the odds? Assess and develop talent the right way.
Most agree that running a winning business requires making the right strategic choices and wise investments. Few however apply the same principles with the necessary rigor to their talent management strategy, planning, or development.
Because of this, organizations continue to spend (and often waste) billions of dollars each year on training and development for their employees – programs that typically fail to produce tangible behavior change or business results.
To better assess and develop talent, we help companies with these proven five steps:
Behavior change is not easy. Having the desired new behaviors impact performance and specific business outcomes is even more difficult.
Behavioral change theorists typically site eight factors known to influence behavior: intention, environmental constraints, skills, attitudes, norms, self-standards, emotion, and self-efficacy. How you push and pull on each factor to make an impact depends upon your desired outcomes and specific situation.
If you want meaningful results, get strategic with how you assess and develop your top talent in alignment with your business and talent strategies for your unique organizational culture.
Be strategic with your talent and treat them differently.
Design and implement state of the art processes to attract, hire and onboard top talent that aligns with your brand and strategy.
Identify, prioritize, and close key performance gaps to create
Engage and retain “A” players to move the business forward.
The LSA customized Organizational Alignment Survey gave us a comprehensive view of how our employees experience our culture, talent, and strategy.
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.

We looked to LSA Global as a consulting partner to help us explore innovative and scholarly approaches to promote employee engagement and sustain the unique culture we’ve built over the last decade. LSA helped us perpetuate coaching as a discipline across the organization by integrating our core values, goal setting, and performance management.
We appreciate LSA’s commitment to cutting-edge practices to help keep us a step ahead during this time of rapid change.

It was a challenge to find a consultant with an approach to performance improvement that fit our unique performance culture and style. We were pleasantly surprised to discover LSA’s depth of expertise in the fields of motivation, developmental coaching, 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 engaged at all levels across the organization.
Overall, I couldn’t be happier that we found a true strategy and implementation partner in LSA.
