Drive Sales Performance

How to Grow 58% Faster and be 72% More Profitable

“We hired LSA to help ensure our sales strategy fully aligns 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.”
Dan Dica | SVP Worldwide Sales | OneSpan

“We selected LSA Global over several other sales experts based upon their ability to clarify and align our sales strategy, and their expertise in identifying the critical business sales scenarios necessary to meet our growth targets and their willingness to stand behind the results with targeted sales coaching and a pay-for-performance guarantee. They have become an integral part of my sales team as we rapidly scale. I would recommend them to any head of sales looking for a true partner.”
Anthony Lanham | SVP, Sales North America | Jumio

“LSA’s ability to get a group of 20+ executives from around the globe on the same page, push their thinking to new heights, and ensure an executable plan was excellent. I would recommend LSA to anyone looking to take their leaders and sales execution to the next level.”
Rob Sturgeon | Executive Vice President | ServiceSource

According to a recent McKinsey study, a high-performing sales force can boost its share of a customer’s business by 8 to 15 percentage points.  What would that do for your business?

Today’s sales leaders and sales teams are facing increased performance pressure to meet aggressive sales targets, thwart increased competition, raise the talent quality bar, and align with new go-to-market sales strategies.  Executives tell us that sales leaders need to thrive in four key areas:

  1. Develop and execute winning go-to-market sales strategies
  2. Create a high performance sales culture that drives the sales strategy forward
  3. Instill common sales methodologies, practices, and processes to deliver more consistent results
  4. Attract, develop, engage and retain top sales talent at the right pace

 

Our Organizational Alignment Research found that sales leaders who align their sales culture and sales talent with their sales strategy grow revenues 58% faster, are 72% more profitable, have 9-1-to-1 greater leadership effectiveness and 16.8-to-1 higher employee engagement levels.  The highest performing sales leaders:

  • Create go-to-market sales clarity by ensuring all key stakeholders clearly understand the go-to-market sales strategy, have no doubt that leadership is fully committed to the strategy, are highly responsive to change, and believe the sales, marketing, product and service teams are consistently implementing the strategy successfully throughout the organization.
  • Build high performance sales cultures by ensuring their teams clearly understand the desired sales culture, frequently observe the majority of sales leaders modeling the desired behaviors, regularly feel the sales culture motivates top performance, repeatedly receive and share information in a timely manner, and continually believe decisions demonstrate a healthy short- and long- term perspective.
  • Differentiate top sales talent  by ensuring their teams believe the quality of sales talent creates a competitive edge, repeatedly observe the company hiring top sales talent and retaining the majority of their top sales performers, continually have unfettered access to the resources necessary to meet their sales targets, and reliably respond positively to required changes in the business and in the marketplace.

Our research-backed, proven and systemic approach to sales performance helps sales teams get pointed in the right direction, purposefully shape the sales performance environment for everyone to perform at their peak and effectively build a differentiated salesforce that creates a competitive advantage for you and your customers.

The sales negotiations training program was awesome. The facilitator was excellent. We are immediately able to see the relevance and apply it to specific needs at Blackhawk. The preparation and energy was very apparent. The facilitator did a great job keeping the class engaged for the entire day and focused on what mattered most to our success. I am very pleased with the results and like the very relevant and applicable sales negotiations tools. Great job.

The introduction and continuous reinforcement of the MEDRAD objectives, vision, and mission was very impressive. By the end of the session, a large majority of the audience understood and was openly able to verbalize these items. LSA did a wonderful job introducing the importance of sales coaching and reinforcement and was able to keep the groups focused.

We partnered with LSA to help custom design, deliver, and measure an advanced new employee on-boarding and measurement process. The process was well thought out and bought into by sales leadership. The combination of targeted sales tools, technology, coaching, performance plans, training and reinforcement made all the difference.  The pilot program in EMEA was a big success and the solution quantifiably improved new employee and hiring manager satisfaction and increased the speed to sales quota for new hires. We are continuing to work with LSA Global to scale the program in other GEOs and expand to cover more roles at VMware.  I would recommend LSA Global for any sales enablement team looking to increase the engagement and speed to productivity of their sales force. We are excited to implement the program globally across VMware as we continue to scale.

We turned to LSA Global to help us take our executive selling and solution selling skills to the next level. Their ability to formally assess our situation, identify key sales skill gaps, develop a plan to measure the results, and fully implement a key sales initiative – has been outstanding.

One of the most dynamic sales training programs I have had the pleasure of being involved in. Nothing I have experienced comes close to them. The sales principles are unique to contact centers and can be applied effectively in sales and customer service-oriented operations.

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.

Phil Rosenberg

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.

LSA Global demonstrated expertise in the sales leadership subject matter, spent the time to make sure the objectives were clear, and showed flexibility in shaping the session and sustaining it. Their facilitator “MEDRADized” the session, looked beyond the obvious, was enthusiastic, was able to keep people’s attention, made it enjoyable, and got the key points across.

Doug Stantial
North America Sales Training Manager

LSA custom designed and delivered the best sales training session that I have ever attended. They focused on our industry, our customers, and our competitors. The materials and facilitators were world class. They were passionate about helping our global sales force understand the fundamentals necessary to be successful and not leave money on the table. I recommend them to any sales force looking to drive profitable revenue and beat the competition.

We selected LSA over a handful of other experts to assist with a key sales leadership imperative. LSA added value every step of the way throughout the entire engagement. Their customized approach to sales presentation training exceeded expectations, and we are excited about global implementation across our offices in more than 100 countries. LSA’s unique Strategy-to-Results approach is an added game changer.  I recommend them to anyone looking to get high quality results when it matters most.
