Accountability is a concept that is relevant for all human relationships, including our relationships with ourselves. Coaches are especially aware of the power of accountability in working with others, as holding clients accountable to their own agendas is one of the key ingredients in effective coaching engagements. Being able to model and promote accountability is essential for high-performing leaders and managers, and holding oneself accountable is essential for successful management of one’s own career and personal relationships.

This webcast will afford you the opportunity to explore what accountability means and how its presence (or absence) affects relationships and results. We will review the 10 essential mindsets and behaviors of accountability, and learn clear processes for holding yourself and others accountable. In addition, you can assess the quality of accountability among important stakeholder relationships and leave with a plan to upgrade your own practice of accountability, whether that means improving the way you hold yourself or others accountable.

In this webcast, you’ll learn:

  • what accountability means and why it is critical for personal and organizational success
  • about a model of behavioral accountability and assess the quality of accountability among your most important stakeholders
  • how to identify strengths and development opportunities for your practice of accountability and make a plan to improve accountability-related mindsets and behaviors.
