Having a culture of accountability is essential to any organization in order to have effective execution. Without it, deadlines can be missed, quality may suffer, and conflicts between individuals and groups could occur.

We naturally look to the leader to hold people accountable. But what if people held themselves accountable? How much easier and more effective would it be in an organization? In addition, having the leader “hold” people accountable doesn’t appear very motivational. In fact, it seems more authoritarian than participative.

In this webinar we will explore the behaviors of self-accountability and how to create an environment where people see the value of holding themselves accountability … as a means to develop themselves as well as to create their brand.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the value of shifting from “The leader needs to hold their people accountable” to “I (the employee) need to step up and hold myself accountable”
  • Learn the behaviors that define/demonstrate Self-Accountability (BRAND model)
  • Recognize the fallacy behind certain phrases and their relationship to Self-Accountability
  • Learn how to instill Self-Accountability in others (3 Rs)

We hope you can join us for a little mental afternoon stretch and learn together!
