What you will learn:

Have you ever been accused of being a micromanager? Or maybe the opposite: you think of holding people accountable and your stomach starts to turn.  The word “accountability” has become a trigger word for many people. But why? Are we thinking about accountability all wrong?

In this Elective, we’ll unpack why accountability is a critical piece of the puzzle--for our lives and our work. We will strengthen our mindset around when, why, and how to approach accountability so that we manage our people well, and hit important goals and targets on time. We will address common fears related to accountability and how to address them, specifically discussing today's climate: a remote/hybrid workforce, the great resignation, and a critical need for psychological safety as we manage Gen Z employees. Our organizations will flourish because we will be intentional about how we support our team members and how we hold them accountable.

This Elective is perfect for managers of all levels and will be a dynamic interactive workshop with a mix of new research-based content, application (role plays, discussion, and thought exercises) with Q+A at the end. Leaders will leave this session with tools that they can implement the very next day, but also a shifted mindset to serve them for the rest of their career, and life.
