Assess & Prioritize

Is your organizational culture
an asset or a liability?

“We are developing a high performance environment and achievement-based culture. Without this unique high performance methodology to assess organizational culture to get aligned, I would expect us to be behind our competitors.”

Shenaz Khan | GM People & Performance | BT Financial

Whether implicit or explicit, every organization has a current culture based on its legacy, its ways and its leadership.  The company culture, represented by how work gets done (especially when no one is looking) is a critical component in terms of strategy execution and performance.

Our organizational alignment research tells us that corporate culture accounts for up to 40% of the difference between high and low performing organizations.

In a nutshell, your organizational culture is either helping or hindering your ability to successfully implement your strategy .  It also determines your ability to effectively attract, engage and retain the top talent required to perform at your peak.

Aligned organizational cultures create positive momentum and cohesion that allow them to grow 58% faster, be 72% more profitable.  These aligned organizations also satisfy customers 3.2-to-1 and engage employees 16.8-to-1.  Unaligned cultures act as a debilitating drag on a company’s focus and ability to perform.

How aligned and effective is your culture in driving business results and attracting and retaining the right talent?  Assess and prioritize organizational culture to determine if your culture is aligned with your strategic aspirations.

We assess and prioritize organizational culture by combining targeted interviews with one of the following proven cultural assessment tools:

  1. A Research-Backed Organizational Culture Alignment Assessment 
    That measures organizational wellness and identifies the top 10 cultural dimensions required to uniquely align your organizational culture with your business strategy.
  2. An Empirically Based Organizational Culture Assessment
    That benchmarks your organizational culture to others or industry best practices to pinpoint where you stand.
  3. A Customized and Research-Backed Organizational Alignment Survey
    That provides a snapshot of the level of alignment between your organizational culture, your talent and your business strategy.
  4. A Research-backed High Performance Environment Survey
    That enables leaders to quickly build a detailed picture of the current performance environment and accurately pinpoint key levers to improve performance.

Based upon the results, we work with senior leadership teams to identify the critical culture moves that will have the greatest impact on immediate business performance and long-term health.  The suggested actions are more than “nice to have” cultural characteristics.  They represent critical environmental factors to optimize business performance.

Please contact us if you want to better assess and prioritize organizational culture to get aligned with your corporate strategy.

I’ve been associated with LSA for the last 8 years and have found them to be an extremely professional, well managed full service training organization. Since working with LSA, I’ve participated in a number of solutions ranging from Performance Management to Assertiveness Training – I’ve found that the quality of the resources is superior. They are well prepared and have definitely done a considerable amount of pre-work in order to customize our culture and business into the total learning experience – making it most beneficial for our employees.

We consistently receive positive feedback about the quality of the LSA Leadership Training Programs and LSA facilitators. We recognize and appreciate the hard work LSA always goes through to align to our unique culture and meet our specific requirements. Thank you for regularly going above and beyond to design solutions to meet our needs. Your support and dedication, both on the strategic and tactical side, have been outstanding!

I have worked with LSA Global at previous companies and welcomed the opportunity to bring them in to support my new organization. We worked closely with LSA to design a solution for our Client Partner Teams and Management Training on both coasts. LSA designed a customized solution for our business and organizational culture. LSA is a quality organization, one that I’d recommend to any company looking for a first class training and consulting partner that makes an impact.

Laurie Torres

We hired LSA Global to design and deliver a customized outdoor experiential new employee orientation program for our recent group of MBA new hires. The program designed helped reinforce WIPRO core values. The program will help the new MBA hires to build relationships with fellow associates and enhance the group’s ability to operate successfully in the global world. I recommend LSA for effective on boarding/outward bound training of new MBA hires.

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.

Their methodology and resources are fantastic and allow us to deploy better solutions faster. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to raise the talent bar with a true strategic partner.

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.

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.

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.

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.
