Accountability is NOT an initiative. It requires a specific set of practices that help you weave it into the fabric of your organization. In this course, you’ll learn how to install and maintain a culture of accountability.
If Your Company Suffers from Accountability Killers, Get Strategic and Build Your Culture.
Once you know the symptoms, a lack of accountability is easy to diagnose: employees covering up mistakes, leaders not practicing what they preach and both sides taking a “me-first” attitude. The damage that results from a lack of accountability can be catastrophic. This course will help you install a culture of accountability that is embedded in every aspect of your organization.
The first class begins with a lesson in the accountability killers. You’ll learn to diagnose your organization or team and recognize the telltale signs of a lack of accountability. The instructors will help you define your strategic vision until it is so clear and precise it can fit on a single sheet of paper. You’ll also define (and refine) your core values into a compact set of beliefs that both employees and leaders can exemplify.
The course continues with a class on the good, bad and ugly of accountability. You’ll begin by understanding the roots of how people learn about accountability. The instructors then move into case studies and provide examples that demonstrate the business and cultural benefit of having a strong accountability culture, as well as the disastrous impact of covering up serious issues in your organization.
Once you understand the theories of an accountability culture, it’s time to start building it in your organization. In the third class you’ll learn the instructors’ four-step process to building a culture. While this course is focused on accountability, it’s important to note that you can apply these principles to any culture you want to build. Learn how to share your vision in a way that inspires people and the action you need to take to bring that vision to life.
You’ll complete the course with a class on feedback, the most essential component of a culture of accountability. Feedback has to be more than a checklist of negatives during an annual performance review. Learn what constitutes constructive feedback that generates results. The instructors provide you with a tool, the SIS Feedback Model, to give you a repeatable method for feedback.
