Workplace Application:
Getting employees to have a passion and commitment to their work is essential for sustained success. Are your current ways working? You can avoid the potential adverse effects of relying solely on financial rewards for promoting accountability and commitment. 

Join us for an invigorating session on empowerment, accountability & ownership in the workplace.   Learn how to navigate the challenges of fostering accountability when employees are asked to 'do more with less,' working within structures where influence is greater than authority, and all are reporting up through managers with differing goals and agendas. Is it reasonable to expect that all organizational goals align and employees are unified in pursuit of a common agenda?  Explore the delicate balance required between intrinsic and extrinsic motivators to cultivate commitment and accountability. Understand the impact of unnecessary fear in the organizational culture and how it can hinder accountability by promoting excuse management.  Uncover strategies for identifying signs that employees may not be taking accountability and gain insights into whether expecting employees to act as owners is realistic. Explore the nuanced distinction between compliance and commitment. What are the potential pitfalls of relying solely on extrinsic motivators?  Don't miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights and avoid the potential adverse effects of relying solely on financial rewards for promoting accountability and commitment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Actionable accountability strategies to guide your employees toward results.
  • Deepen your understanding of the differences between ownership, accountability, and responsibility.
  • Delve into the intricacies of intrinsic and extrinsic motivators for employees.
  • Explore methods to foster responsibility and accountability through motivation, recognition, and collaboration in the workplace.
