Organisations and their leaders talk often about the benefits of accountability. Many of these organisations possess “Accountability” as an organisational value, yet very few leaders or organisations have a clear understanding of what Accountability is, or how to develop accountability within an individual, team or organisation. A performance culture (or a culture of accountability) is one in which individuals deliver on their promises. Similarly, they do not promise or undertake to do something unless they can achieve it to the desired standard within the specified timeframes.
This workshop provides participants with an understanding of what is required to create a performance culture through clearly articulated work requests and being prepared to evaluate performance, provide meaningful feedback and importantly, hold individuals to account. Too often we witness the symptoms of a lack of accountability: blame, denial, low standards, and under-performance. This workshop is targeted at managers and leaders who wish to drive performance by taking personal accountability for their role and empowering their team members to do the same. Now, more than ever Accountability is the key to optimal performance.
