What makes a leader?
Changing customer demands, increased competition, and a brand new generation of workers is bringing more pressure than ever to create an environment where associates feel empowered to drive ACTION, take RISKS, and COOPERATE and COLLABORATE to accomplish mission critical objectives. These people need more than just a manager, they need a visionary leader… They need a COACH.

To: Prospective Client
As the Global Managing Director of Accenture Business Services, a team of over 5000 professionals supporting Accenture, a large global consulting, technology and outsourcing company with over 240,000 people in 110 countries, it can be very challenging to create a high performing team of leaders. We are spread across seven countries and only have the opportunity to have a face-to-face meeting every 2-3 years.
We engaged Tom Rausch and his team at Leadership Beyond Limits to work with us to improve our overall team cohesion among our top leadership team, as well as develop a culture of coaching and mentoring in our ABS organization. Our program involved a combination of team exercises, as well as individual coaching sessions.
Even with my Directors coming from many different cultures, including India, Argentina, USA, China and others, they were able to customize a program that everyone was happy and comfortable with. Without exception, everyone who participated in the program saw great benefit in both the team and individual elements of our program. In fact, we are actually expanding the rollout of the program in some locations. We saw a marked increase in our team cohesion, which was critical given our organization was going through major changes.
We set out very specific goals at the onset and I feel all those objectives were exceeded and I would not hesitate to utilize the services of Leadership Beyond Limits again!! They are exceptional! I really appreciate how they were able to adjust our plans as unexpected changes occurred in the business, as well as their ability to understand our business and how this program must support those business outcomes.
