The Power of Accountability- A Solution for Communication, Clarity and Certainty.
When many people hear the word “accountability”, it conjures up thoughts of blaming others or being blamed for mistakes, lack of performance, poor results, unsuccessful initiatives, and just generally being judged unfavorably.
Yet high performance requires accountability. Where there is a lack of accountability, people don’t get information when they need it, decisions may not be made in a timely manner, actions aren’t taken and employees are not implementing effectively, no matter how skilled they are.
When there is a lack of accountability, communication breaks down, non-performers thrive while everyone else has to work harder. The result is people are afraid to take risks; they don’t feel supported when facing new challenges; they protect themselves at the cost of hurting others, avoiding their own involvement. The result is people feel like a victim with a corresponding feeling of resentment, judgment, and a sense of being powerless.
You’ve witnessed the results of lack of accountability: you’ve observed people making others wrong, in order to be right. You’ve heard people complain about stress and being overwhelmed, and you’ve felt their anger. And you have experienced turn-over of employees because of the lack of it.
Accountability is a bigger issue than we thought.
The Accountability Workshop is designed for between 12-25 participants and is a full day, on–sight, cutting-edge program. Complete with Workbook and Power Point, we train participants in what is necessary to establish a culture of accountability and provide the tools and models to develop one. The program supports participants to “own” their work and results, and be able to account for their intentions and actions.
Small businesses need more than ideas to grow. What they need is help identifying the RIGHT IDEAS to run with and how to FIT THEM TOGETHER into a comprehensive strategy. For the 7L Growth Playbook, we bring in business experts, formerly from GE, a company known for its business and operational excellence, to your company to create a custom plan to help you reach your goals. Once your future plan is identified and developed, we coach you though the plan to insure you stay on track and achieve your goals and vision. Learn more at www.SeventhElement.com/GPB.

The premier coaching program for leaders to achieve Personal Mastery and Coaching Excellence.
Personal Excellence and Coaching Mastery Executives and managers who want to develop and retain employees who are able to produce extraordinary results have skills we call coaching. They demonstrate listening generously, not just hearing; are masterful in their use of language; can see beyond complaints and unproductive behavior and speak to the values and needs of all. A coach is able to get to the source of problems, not just come up with solutions; is concerned with “who” someone is, not just what they are doing; and is a model of attraction, not manipulation.
This is an eight-month program designed to develop the coaching skills of middle and senior level executives. It combines live training with conference calls and private calls with Susan and our other highly trained coaches. These sessions are supplemented by professional study guides and e-mail availability with all of the instructors.
