This workshop can be taken as a stand-alone workshop or as part of the Foundational Leadership Certificate Series.  Just exactly where does that buck stop?  Good managers know how to delegate, but it can be a challenge to manage employees who are more interested in passing the buck than being responsible for it. The resulting lack of ownership and responsibility can bog down processes and shut down projects.  Learn how to marry expectations to results in “Accountability: Stop the Blame Game.” This workshop will help you create a game plan for building a culture of accountability with your team—starting at the top—and teach you how to design and use agreements with your team.  Learning Objectives Define three critical elements: responsibility, empowerment and accountability, and how they work together to create results Learn how to design and use clear agreements that provide clarity — knowing exactly who is responsible for what and when to get the job done  Discuss and gain skills for holding yourself — and others — accountable for results, no matter how things turn out  Become aware of where you are in the accountability game...what you do well, and what may need some attention Create a game plan for building a culture of accountability with your team Who Should Attend Supervisors, Managers Team Leads Individual Contributors Group discount:  Enter code ACC120120 when registering 3 or more attendees to receive a 15% discount.

Advanced Leadership Series Cohort The role of the manager in today’s uncertain and quickly changing workplace has shifted dramatically. They need to do more to meet the needs and expectations of their talented, independent and, in many cases, remote workforce. They must serve as coach and mentor, be accessible and remain communicative. Their responsibilities are larger than assuring the work is performed; they have to ensure that workers are content as well. The level of responsibility and accountability placed on managers is greater today than it has ever been which is why your managers need training and support now more than ever.  Our Advanced Leadership Series will support your managers with meeting these demands.  Through our blended learning approach, participants learn the critical management skills they need to succeed.  The skills are first introduced in our instructor-led workshops  and then supplemented through the new group coaching sessions that have been added to the series.  Participants are given the opportunity to reflect upon what they’ve learned to date, discuss what they’ve been able to apply and explore any roadblocks.  This blended approach includes all the elements necessary for learning and applying the new and necessary skills. Managers, supervisors and team leads will have a chance to explore six critical topics for their leadership development. Click on the content tab above  for a description of each course in the series. Each class is dedicated to building your advanced management skills and insight. We focus on conflict identification and resolution, advanced problem-solving techniques, how to build an effective high-performing team, and how to deal with problem employees (including the proper way to dismiss them if need be). You'll also learn how to coach individual team members to optimal performance all year round, not just at the annual performance review. REMEMBER: Everything you learn in this program will expand your leadership capabilities. You can become a stronger team leader and a more productive and valued member of your organization.
