The Specifics of Accountability




Business Challenge


“How do I boost accountability on my team?” This is the most pervasive question being asked by leaders today. It is being asked in small businesses and in Fortune 500 companies.

Accountability is like rain. Everyone knows it's good for you, but nobody wants to get wet.

The term “accountability” is so frequently used without supporting actions that it loses its meaning with organizations. This predictably erodes a culture of accountability.

Lack of specificity is the Achilles heel of Accountability. Specific expectations, specific coaching and specific language accelerate winning results and relationships.

The workshop is based on 18 years of helping leading organizations execute their plans by boosting accountability. A full chapter is dedicated to this topic in the book Stick with It: Mastering the Art of Adherence.

This half-day, interactive workshop will boost your team's accountability and drive results ... fast!
