Accountability at work is critical. Picture a workplace where mistrust is the norm, employees are concerned with protecting their reputations, and teams seek to defend their “turf”, often failing to keep their promises. A Gallup poll estimates that the cost of lost productivity from unaccountable and disengaged employees is between $287 and $370 billion per year, a staggering figure.
Instead, picture yourself with more accountability at work, where trust is unquestioned, commitments are clear, personal responsibility is high, people take ownership of problems, and mistakes are treated as opportunities to improve rather than reasons to blame. These conditions are the cornerstone of a positive work environment.
A workplace with high accountability breeds increased efficiency and productivity, more participation and involvement, increased feelings of competency, increased sense of commitment, higher morale and satisfaction.
This 3-hour instructor-led online seminar will focus on how to improve accountability at work and offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
