With Accenture Leadership solutions we help our clients build and expand leadership capabilities at scale for executives as well as leaders at all levels, especially those with managerial or supervisory responsibilities.
We work to develop a leadership strategy and architecture that is aligned with the corporate strategy, and then we focus on innovative and high-impact learning and development programs for leaders throughout the organization.
Energizing leadership at all levels. The attitudes and behaviors of leaders are a key influence on strategy execution, corporate culture and interaction with customers.
In addition, Accenture’s differentiating view is that leadership strategy and development must focus on more than only the small percentage of leaders at the top of the enterprise. Leaders in the middle of the organization actually make up about 50 percent of a company; if they are not effectively engaged and enabled, they may actually prevent the entire company from achieving its goals.
If this group is engaged and capable, however, it can increase the productivity of the organization by one or two standard deviations; it is a very powerful lever to pull.
Accenture undertakes continuous research into leadership principles and practices to understand what makes leaders successful—at the top of the house and at all levels in the organization. This research shapes our evolving approaches and helps us advise our clients.
Leadership in the context of talent development. At Accenture, Leadership solutions are part of a broader offering focused on Talent—to help ensure that work in the leadership area is aligned with other types of activities such as developing a human capital strategy; establishing new workforce behaviors as well as an effective leadership culture; managing organization change; fostering an innovative and powerful learning environment; establishing performance management processes, succession planning, HR processes, governance and more.
