“We got great value from the strategy session.  We would not hesitate to use LSA again to help align and lead senior teams to drive higher performance.”

Natalie McCullough | Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer | ServiceSource

“At a time of change in our marketplace, LSA Global did an exceptional job helping our executive team define, clarify and prioritize our corporate vision, mission, values, differentiation, target clients, strategic priorities, success metrics and key roles.

They beautifully navigated a very difficult and fuzzy situation, respectfully cleared out all of the cultural elephants, and shared impactful insights and theories along the way.

They have transformed our business.  We look forward to our continued partnership to help us execute our growth strategy and continue to align and lead senior teams.”

Laurie Sewell | President & CEO | Servicon Systems

Employees want leaders to align and lead them down a clear, compelling, and believable strategic path.

They want an exciting vision of what the company hopes to become, a persuasive mission outlining the organization’s fundamental purpose, and targeted initiatives that provide a strategic rudder to make difficult decisions and allocate valuable resources.

After defining the strategic path, senior leaders must commit to the strategy through their words and their actions. Organizational structures and systems must not hinder the path, but make it as easy as possible for employees to successfully navigate the journey.

Strategic alignment occurs when every senior leader and function act in harmony with each other to achieve a common set of objectives. Effective organizational accord requires leaders to take a systemic view of their business.

This begins with the strategy and with senior leaders understanding and leveraging the interdependencies between the various strategies, structures, systems, processes, and people to create organizational integrity.

Senior Team Alignment Process

We believe that organizational effectiveness is a direct reflection of how its Leadership Team works together. When the Senior  team is misaligned, the organization cannot be aligned — and performance suffers.

Our Senior Team Alignment Process helps leadership teams achieve (and sustain) alignment around the organization’s strategies, vision, and values. This alignment drives better operating discipline, higher levels of trust, more open communication, and improved decision-making.

  • Performance Leadership
    Once a Senior Team has attained alignment, its next challenge is to cascade that alignment deeper into the organization and translate it into measurable results.

    Performance Leadership allows the Senior Team to unleash its best and brightest employees on the business’s most pressing challenges and biggest opportunities.

    Performance Leadership creates a unique opportunity for the Senior Team to develop a core group of change agents to drive meaningful transformation throughout the organization.

  • Shared Leadership
    Our Shared Leadership program increases front-line engagement by challenging employees to complete quick-cycle projects while living the organization’s leadership values. Participants receive coaching from senior executives and gain valuable leadership development opportunities.

    Sponsoring executives gain insights into the people in their organization and learn strategies for getting the most out of their teams.

    The business also benefits from the lessons, efficiencies, and top- and bottom-line results that the projects produce.

Please contact us if you want to better align and lead senior teams at your organization.

As a high growth agency with cutting edge talent, we hired LSA Global to help clarify our strategy and work with our executive leadership team to help implement strategic changes in a way that made sense for our unique culture.

The work was so successful that we also hired them to coach our key leaders. LSA has been instrumental in helping us transition to a new leadership team and triple revenue.  In this age of useless consultants, I highly recommend their practical and business-oriented approach to strategy, culture, and talent.

LSA has a very unique and powerful methodology regarding learning. Their ability to overcome skepticism, obtain executive support, and create an aligned learning strategy that provides measurable business impact is second to none.

They understand your goals, flex to your needs, and solve problems. They certainly help make my job easier and are a pleasure to work with.

I highly recommend LSA to anyone trying to connect the dots between strategy, skills, knowledge, and results.

We recently hired LSA to help us take our client delivery methodology to the next level as we continue to grow and help our clients succeed.

The custom strategy and design session exceeded our expectations. They really understood our business and delivered within tight time frames. They were the best I have seen for this type of complex, visible, and strategic work.

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 strategy and strategic execution to the next level.

LSA Global really shifted our perspective about strategic clarity and organizational culture.

The 3 C’s approach to workplace culture is very practical and really helps  executive teams – even skeptical ones – ensure that your culture is healthy, high performing, and aligned.

Having taken on a new executive leadership role, one of my first calls was to LSA Global to help my leadership team to design, implement, and cascade clear strategic plans.  First, LSA helped our leadership team identify the strategy, culture, and talent areas that mattered most to create organizational alignment.

Then they helped facilitate the design of a strategic growth plan that is clear, compelling, believable, and implementable. We now have 100% commitment from an aligned leadership team and key stakeholders going forward.

I would recommend LSA to anyone who wants to create high levels of strategic alignment, growth, and performance.

Erik Arvesen

We selected LSA Global over 5 other companies to help our key executives improve their overall communication and executive presentation capabilities. LSA exceeded our expectations.

I highly recommend LSA to any executive team looking to better organize and more effectively deliver key executive-level messages — especially when the stakes are high.

Todd Power

LSA has a tremendous ability to distil complex, multilayered challenges into meaningful, impactful, and clear strategies and action plans.

The time we invested as a leadership team to get aligned was well spent in gaining laser focus and identifying ways to prioritize what was meaningful individually and as a team. The facilitation and leadership style was direct, firm, and compassionate.

LSA provided the high level thinking and support for our team to co-create in a rapidly scaling business.

LSA was very thorough during all phases of our customer service strategy process.  Their time spent with management and our employees went very well.

LSA’s insights were very powerful, and their suggestions for the future were very valuable.

I can’t think of any phase of the process that wasn’t first class.

Having tripled in size and recently merged, LSA helped our executive team to increase our level of strategic alignment, to solidify our new direction, and to push our agency forward.

As we look to rapidly scale, the clear, actionable, and critical few strategic moves combined with how we differentiate ourselves to our top accounts and target clients has really set us on a great path to success.

This is exactly what we needed to get to the next level. Thank you LSA!

LSA worked with our Executive Leadership Team to help create strategic clarity and alignment as we look to increase our growth rate and unlock innovation.  They masterfully handled very complex, challenging, and high stakes leaders, decisions, and cultural nuances to help us identify what matters most and move toward one unified direction.
