Individuals who go through accountability training are better able to develop positive relationships, feel a sense of accomplishment and improve personal productivity, all with less stress. They will also develop skills to hold others accountable for agreements in a way that minimizes conflict and encourages improved results.

Leadership Accountability leads to organizations in which there is crystal-clear clarity about what’s expected to happen, how, and when. Managers and supervisors learn to encourage employee accountability at all levels, leading to increased engagement and a decrease in the gap between expectation and delivery.

The Accountability Experience is appropriate for individuals, managers, and is a useful refresher for senior executives.

The Accountability Experience combines a self-assessment and customized report to allow employees to feel more in control of outcomes and improve key work relationships. The self-assessment is designed to gauge how an employee’s current mindset puts accountability, responsibility, and empowerment into practice. For those who wish to explore accountability deeper there is a one-day workshop available here.

Administered in advance of the workshop, the 73-item self-assessment measures an individual's mindset in four dimensions of accountability: Personal Responsibility, Personal Accountability, Team Empowerment, and Perception of Organizational Culture.

During the one-day workshop, participants are introduced to the three phases of the Accountability Cycle:

  • Responsibility: Claiming ownership of a task
  • Self-Empowerment: Taking personal action to complete the task
  • Accountability: Answering for the outcome
