The leadership coaching program has helped grantee leaders from more than 30 organizations in numerous measurable ways. One of the nonprofits doubled individual giving in one year. Another increased new foundation/corporation funding by 30 percent. The executive working on improving networking capabilities established a relationship with a government agency that brought in $100,000 of new funding to the organization.
At an individual level, leaders participating in the coaching program credit Accenture Strategy for numerous improvements. One leader has improved his/her ability to leverage key staff members and delegate responsibilities. Another executive realized that one of his primary roles was to act as his organization’s “Chief People Officer,” creating opportunities for staff to grow and maintaining a sense of community during times of growth and change.
Following the success of this program, Robin Hood asked Accenture Strategy to conduct similar coaching sessions with its own high-potential employees who were taking on greater responsibility within the organization. The success of the Robin Hood internal leadership coaching program during its first two years led to Accenture being asked to run the program again.
