About LSA Global

Since 1995, LSA has helped leading organizations create and maintain distinct competitive advantages through people. We are a global training and consulting firm grounded on the principle that training "by itself" will not drive tangible change or business results.

Our clients are typically mid-market business leaders who believe that investing in people is vital to their success. The majority come from high-tech, life-sciences, and service industries and often lack the internal resources or expertise to get the job done. They want more than what traditional training and consulting approaches can deliver.

Our one-stop-shop offerings range from creating a high performance culture, to outsourcing the training function, to designing and delivering targeted learning solutions. We excel in seven key practice areas: assessment, sales, loyalty, leadership, management, project management, and measurement.
