Personal Accountability Starts Here: Learn a practical framework for improving personal accountability (so you can get more done)

Personal accountability is sorely lacking—and urgently needed in the workplace. When no one is responsible for an outcome, no tough choices are made, no innovative decisions are implemented, and little out-of-the-box thinking is done.

So how exactly can you get more accountability from your team?

YOU. Organizational accountability starts with you.

As leaders we must go first – we must provide an example of personal accountability for others to follow. When you are more accountable, by extension, you are helping to build it in your organization. Our willingness to accept responsibility has a trickle-down effect: When our team sees us as willing and able to wrap our arms around a new project or initiative, navigate the challenges and inevitable bumps-in-the-road without making excuses for results, it has an impact on them.

People are more apt to model personal accountability if they see it in their supervisors on a regular basis. Think about it: How can the people that report to you embrace a behavior of accountability if you don’t?

And fortunately, accountability is not just a mind-set—it’s a skill-set that everyone can learn. In this insightful 60-minute audio CD, you’ll learn specific techniques for building more personal accountability – for yourself and your team. Presented by Kevin Eikenberry, who was recently named as one of the 2014 Top 100 Leadership and Management Experts in the World, you’ll explore:

  • The definition of accountability. Learn the three components of accountability and how they affect your ability to be responsible for your actions
  • The key underlying belief to personal accountability: The difference between what you can control, and your circle of influence.
  • How to recognize what you can and can’t influence – and learn how big your circle of influence really is
  • How to be comfortable when you make a mistake
  • The two biggest obstacles to making personal accountability work and how to recognize them: blame and playing the victim
  • An analysis of the Victim-Accountability model
  • The danger of rationalizing our actions
  • The key questions we must ask ourselves – and find answers for – to really own our accountability
  • How to stimulate accountability in others after you master it yourself
  • The difference between delegation and sharing responsibility

As a leader, you need to learn how to not only be accountable, but delegate and share responsibility as well. Through this audio persentation, you’ll learn techniques to do this.
