Promise & Differentiation

Created by clients for clients.

LSA Global was founded in 1995 by Sally Ewald as Learning Solutions Alliance. An "Associate of the Decade Award" winner.

The LSA Promise

We make a meaningful impact on the people and the business by:

  • Identifying the strategy, culture and talent actions that matter most
  • For Business Executives and HR Leaders
  • Who are stretched thin or need to take performance to the next level
  • Backed by a unique performance guarantee

Unlike niche training and consulting organizations which are primarily focused on larger companies, selling their intellectual property at high margins, or are limited by their own narrow and proprietary solutions – and therefore are unable to truly act as a trusted advisor with a client’s best interests at heart.

The LSA Way

To deliver on our promise, we strive to:

  1. Add measurable business value to our clients in everything we do
  2. Help our clients better manage the complexity and integration associated with multiple demands
  3. Create strong Company-to-Company relationships focused on helping our clients to succeed
  4. Understand what matters most to our clients, their company and their industry
  5. Go above and beyond what our clients expect

The LSA Difference

Our clients tell us that a few things clearly set us apart:

  • Our approach provides more measurable results
    Our research-backed methodology allows us to identify the strategy, culture and talent actions that matter most to the people and the business.  This allows our clients to create higher levels of agreement, invest more wisely, and increase revenue, decrease costs or improve performance faster.
  • Our business model provides more expertise, variable  costs, breadth, depth and speed
    Our elite network of experts allows our clients to extend their team farther and gain better access to resources not typically available to mid-market companies while saving more time, money and headaches.
  • Our performance guarantee puts us in the same boat as our clients
    Because our success is measured by the success of our clients, we speak the truth and have our clients’ best interests at heart as their trusted partner.  If LSA does not make an impact, our clients do not pay. Our performance guarantee is that simple.

Our Team

Strategy, culture and talent experts passionate about making a difference

LSA’s experts provide our clients with unequaled access to consulting, coaching and training expertise in the areas of sales, leadership, management, customer service and project management.  Our teams have “been there and done that.”  Our success is measured by the success of our clients.

Our Guarantee

Pay-for-Performance.  If we do not make an impact, you do not pay.  It is that simple.

We are fiercely devoted to the success of our clients and guarantee results. We stand behind our work.

Human capital consulting and training firms avoid a pay-for-performance approach because they are afraid of the risks it presents for their business.  But at LSA, we welcome the opportunity. A pay-for-performance approach allows us to truly partner with our clients in a way that reduces the risk for our clients.   A pay-for-performance approach also allows us to  focus 100% on delivering measurable and relevant value to our clients' business.  In fact, the pay-for-performance mindset is what gets us out of bed in the morning.  We are all about helping our clients succeed personally and professionally.

We do not push products or just sell stuff to make money.  We do not hide behind potential variables out of our control.  We do not debate who added what level of value.

We DO honestly, relentlessly and selflessly partner with our clients to identify and move metrics that make a difference.  We do make meaningful and important things happen in a way that works for our clients, their strategy and their culture.  We believe this puts us in a position to more effectively help our clients to succeed.  It also aligns with our mission of "Creating a Competitive Advantage through People" and our corporate value of "Being Client-Centric and Making a Difference in Our Client’s Business."

We live this mission.  Just ask our clients.  We put them first, use world-class experts, ask the tough questions, think systemically and try to link everything we do to meaningful personal and professional success metrics.

Typical pay-for-performance client metrics that we move include:

LSA has been a tremendous asset to my portfolio, both at my current company and my past company. As an HR leader, I am always looking for ways to find external resources that can provide a solution to our management training needs. LSA does that for me. Their solutions are presented in a much more leadership-oriented manner so as to be crisp, business relevant, and easy to apply right back on the job. I will continue to augment our programs using LSA solutions.

Ken Boehm
VP of Human Resources

I highly recommend LSA Global to anyone who is looking to improve individual or organizational effectiveness through their top quality programs and broad range of expertise.

LSA’s Employee Engagement Consulting and Survey work has provided critical visibility into: how well our people are holding up under the general economic environment, as well as, the specific challenges that face biotechnology companies in their efforts to discover and develop new medicines; their level of alignment and commitment to XOMA’s Vision and mission critical strategies; how leadership practices and management systems support an environment that engender commitment, and the specific actions that our leaders can take to improve on areas that are important to our people. I highly recommend LSA’s employee engagement solutions.

Chris Wells
Vice President, HR and IT

LSA provided top notch solutions right when and how we needed them. They exceeded my expectations from a speed, quality, and cost standpoint. I recommend them to anyone looking for a true business partner in the Learning and Development arena.

The Next Generation Management Development courses have helped me communicate more effectively with my peers and teammates. By utilizing effective communication techniques such as clarifying and confirming, and asking open ended questions, I have been able to clarify and understand information in situations where I would have otherwise asked limited questions and made false assumptions.

Robert Breckner
Firmware Engineering Manager

In the Next Generation Management Development courses, I was trained with skills and tools that have made me and my team more productive, motivated, and successful at communicating with other departments.

PalmSource has found our relationship with LSA extremely beneficial. We worked closely with LSA to customize the right Management Training Program solution to meet our unique business needs. LSA is a quality organization, one that I’d recommend to any company looking for a first class training and consulting partner.

Ken Boehm
Vice President of Human Resources

In my years working with LSA, it seems like I’ve had a personal consultant at my fingertips to help me identify just the right solution to satisfy our needs. The entire LSA team has become a trusted friend of Actel — assuring we provide state-of-the-art learning to meet our complex, high-tech business and people needs.

Training Manager

“We turned to LSA to help us custom design and deliver a leadership and management development curriculum to help drive performance. They have done an excellent job diagnosing the business situation, designing an approach that fits our culture, and delivering a first class solution.”

Sally Buchannan
VP Human Resources

Each program is preceded by an assessment of the participants. The course is then designed to fit the specific parameters and needs of the group. The highly interactive delivery is provided by recognized experts in their fields. On the spot coaching is provided during the program and each participant receives individual follow-up after the course. Courses can be delivered in-person or virtually. Given the nature of Cisco’s business and the way we operate, these remote workshops are a must for anyone who joins our company. Their work is eye opening. Great content and fantastic delivery.

Frank J. Kuypers
Business Development Manager

I consistently look to LSA Global when I need custom programs put together for my client groups. I can always count on LSA to do a thorough needs analysis and to put together spectacular programs that are well received. Their management development and performance management expertise and professionalism make them one of my top-rated learning and development partners.

We consider LSA our true business partner in the areas of Learning and Organizational Development. From Strategic Planning to Presentation Skills and Management Training, they continue to provide excellent value and extremely high quality solutions – not just one time events. I recommend them to anyone looking to drive true business results.

Michelle A. Mitchell
Vice President, Worldwide Human Resources

Thank you to LSA Global for their partnership and support in helping us to design and roll-out our valuable management development training program. I personally have partnered with LSA Global at four of my previous companies. It continues to be a delight working with LSA. We look forward to partnering with them at Blackhawk Networks for future training and consulting needs.

Suzanne Kinner
VP Human Resources

Blackhawk Network

Understanding and conforming to legal compliance was very important to our company. We turned to LSA Global to provide a quality and cost effective way to ensure that we were AB 1825 compliant. Their interactive eLearning program was top-notch. It allowed our managers to learn at their own pace, and on their own time. The program was tailored to include our logo and our internal harassment policies. It was interactive and met all federal and state legal requirements. I would highly recommend LSA Global to any company looking for an efficient and effective and top quality way to train their managers to be in compliance.

Kelly Warren, SPHR
Director, HR & Compliance

LSA helped change our entire culture around meetings, making them more effective and efficient, thus enabling us to concentrate on driving more business.
