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:

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.

Greg Pappas
VP of Human Resources

We have been able to utilize LSA’s extensive network of top-notch resources to leverage our investment in employee development. The result has been the cost effective and highly efficient delivery of quality educational and management training programs.

Steve Feller
Vice President, Human Resources

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

Avon’s success is dependent on strong relationships among our Customers, Representatives, Associates, and outside resources we hire to help us meet our business objectives. We were very pleased with the results from working with LSA Global to design and facilitate a custom program for our events management team. LSA demonstrated responsiveness, flexibility, and an innovative approach to working with us.

Deanna Rudnitsky
Senior Manager, HR Destiny Sales Region

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!

Congratulations on your pro-activity in establishing this program and developing such an effective New Employee Orientation course.

We partnered with LSA to pilot a customized behavioral interviewing program to help ensure that we continue to hire the best and brightest as we continue to rapidly scale. LSA’s ability to understand our business and our unique culture combined with their desire to ensure that the best practices framework truly fits our performance environment and is highly adopted by our people is a real blessing. Most other firms want to just ‘give you training.’ Not LSA, they are focused on helping me hit our hiring forecasts and attract A players.

Jennifer Remling
Director of Global Recruiting

AKQA

I’ve partnered with LSA Global at two companies now, and I consider them a valuable and trusted partner. They always design and deliver just the right solution and have wonderful facilitators that match YuMe’s unique culture and style of management I would highly recommend LSA to any company wanting to deliver quality learning solutions with a true partner who has your best interests at heart.

Maya Paul
HR Director

We partnered with LSA Global to help us invest in our people in the areas of performance coaching, diversity, and inclusion. They focused on helping us succeed and were very flexible in meeting our specific needs. LSA exceeded my expectations from a speed, quality, and value standpoint. I would recommend LSA to anyone looking for a true business partner.

Anita Luckinbill
Director, Human Resources

LSA’s Employee Engagement Survey and Consulting work has provided critical visibility into what matters most to our people as well as the specific challenges that face biotechnology companies.  Their ability to  identify engagement drivers and engender commitment to the specific actions that our leaders can take to improve engagement and retention in our unique circumstances are top notch.  I highly recommend LSA’s employee engagement solutions for anyone looking to truly engage and retain top talent.

Chris Wells
Vice President, HR and IT

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

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

I had been working with LSA for many years with my prior company. Currently, I’m with a company who hadn’t done much basic management skills training. After identifying and presenting a program recently, our managers are excited and talking in the halls about the great experience. LSA saves us time in delivering the right training for our needs.

Phyllis Moracco
HR Director

LSA always helps us provide the right sales, management, and leadership programs at the right time to meet the unique needs of both individuals and departments. I especially appreciate their ability to deeply understand our business and our culture so that they can recommend the appropriate solutions.

Sarah Parks
Senior Project Manager

Hyperion

We have been very pleased with the high quality management development programs that LSA Global has delivered for us over the last four years by their world class facilitators. The knowledge gained by our management team has been put into practice very quickly. LSA consistently delivers excellent results and receives exceptional feedback from our management team. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to improve management capabilities.
