Creating a Culture of Accountability

Do you feel like you spend too much time following up with your team or colleagues? Are you struggling to get the information you need to move forward on your projects? If yes, your team is missing an effective accountability structure. Holding accountability is an essential skill that saves time, reduces conflict, empowers others, and helps people grow.

During this workshop you will:

  • Learn how to create clarity with others
  • Practice holding accountability without judgment
  • Use a tool that works with your direct reports, colleagues, and boss, and
  • Enable others to learn from their actions.
