Who We Are

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 of small and mid-market companies by:

  • Identifying the strategy, culture and talent actions that matter most to Get Aligned™
  • Who are stretched thin or need to take performance to the next level

Unlike niche training and consulting organizations that are primarily focused on Fortune 500 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 help clients Get Aligned™ by:

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

The LSA Difference

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

  • Our More Strategic and Practical Approach Provides More Measurable Results
    Our research-backed methodology allows us to identify the critical few strategy, culture, and talent actions that matter most to the people and to the business.  This allows our clients to create higher levels of agreement, make smarter investments, and move their strategies forward more consistently and more gracefully.
  • Our Business Model Provides More Expertise, Variable  Costs, Flexibility, 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 small and 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 Global brought a fresh perspective to our behavioral based interviewing strategy for key executive positions that we needed to fill.  Their consultant helped us to develop questions that produced a much deeper understanding of candidates’ capabilities. Throughout the process LSA was also very responsive in dealing with short lead time requests.  Thank you!

Kim Silva, CFO

The Managing Virtual Teams program was extremely valuable. LSA’s consultant’s fundamental knowledge of our company provided an incredible base to build upon while tackling the complications of managing and working with globally distributed teams. My team walked away walked away with highly useful practices and tools. It was excellent.

Debra Martucci
Vice President, Information Technology

We engaged LSA to design and deliver a 6-month custom executive coaching program to help a core group of senior leaders to leverage previous investments in management training, to ensure the engagement and retention of key employees, and to push critical strategic initiatives forward. Even with the high expectations of our senior people, LSA has completely exceeded our expectations. You can’t go wrong with LSA.

Ivan Fukumoto
Senior HR Manager - Staffing, Training, & Development

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.

Linda Mitchell
Training Manager

We contacted LSA to help us design and deliver customized management development programs. LSA worked with us to identify a solution that would meet our exact needs. We start at the top with our executive team, and it was such a great success that we rolled it out company-wide. We look forward to a long-term partnership with LSA Global and their team of expert consultants and trainers.

LSA has become the gold standard in team building and management training at Genomic Health! I have a hard time finding facilitators that come close to their level of customization, expertise and experience.

Emily Couey
Director of Human Resources

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.
