Accountability . . . the Highest Form of Leadership
Sponsored by Laura Stack, Founder & CEO, LEADERSHIP USA™
Presented by Sam Silverstein, CSP
Do too many of your people make excuses for missed deliverables, deliver late or sub-standard projects, or not provide what they promised? If so, you’re not alone in trying to lead a team where members lack accountability. There’s good news and bad in this — leadership (you) is the cause and the solution.
When leaders learn how to be accountable to their people and create an environment where people *want* to be accountable then poor performance disappears. Staff become highly engaged, feel safe to innovate, try creative ideas, and focus on high performance. Staff members get along, like and trust each other which leads to excellent, effective communication, teamwork and high engagement. You guessed it — high productivity and a better bottom line are the direct result.
In this session, you’ll hear several case studies from organizations that have achieved high accountability standards so you can adapt their best practices to your organization. You’ll understand how to implement a culture that inspires accountability.
You’ll see how the Accountable Leader™ does not focus on changing what people do, but instead focuses on changing the way your people think in order to inspire an environment where accountability is encouraged and embraced. You’ll explore the critical thought processes necessary for leaders to drive accountability throughout the organization including:
- How the 10 Commitments of Accountability™ will change your organization for the better
- Why the “Terms of Change™” will make your people excited to embrace change
- How knowing the “Change Categories” will help you communicate with each person successfully
- Understand precisely how to empower your team to want to be accountable
- Unlock the importance of knowing what you value and how to create and support your ideal organizational culture
Session includes: Seminar and supplementary learning resources.
