“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

“LSA is no fluff.  My experienced leadership team had worked with strategy and leadership consultants before without great success.  LSA exceeded all expectations.  People went through a metamorphosis with game changing behaviors.

LSA gave me and our leadership team the foundation we needed for high growth.  They have become my high stakes leadership Sherpa.”

Conroy Boxhill | President | Porter Novelli

“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 strategic vision of what the company hopes to become, a persuasive mission statement 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, organizational 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 corporate 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.

Having recently completed an acquisition that doubled our size and geographic reach, we needed to redefine our “go forward” plan to address the increasing commoditization of our marketplace.

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.

LSA’s executive coach based his approach on understanding our business circumstances and strategy, as well as our leadership aspirations. The customized coaching covered all aspects of leadership; it was not simply a touchy-feely endeavor.

In fact, the focus on clear business outcomes and real life circumstances challenged me as a senior leader to develop my thinking and actions related to leading the business.”

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.

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!

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.
