Everyone is talking about accountability but few organizations are actually successful in ensuring that personal accountability is hardwired into their talent and everyday business and HR operations. Accountability has been illusive for many organizations, as they have not yet come to understand how to calculate the true value of an employee, how to drive it through great leadership, and how to measure the results.  The true value of an employee is no longer determined just by their technical skills, expertise or current performance.  The value proposition in our organizations today is far more complex in our new realities and must take into account one’s accountability level, one’s willingness to change and to align with the organization.  Total value is determined by one’s current performance PLUS their future relevance MINUS their emotional expensiveness to the institution!  In this session, participants will learn key strategies for getting the most out of this new value equation.

In order to ensure that all talent will remain relevant and accountable far into the future and that plenty of bench strength exists in the organization, leaders must renew their focus on the coaching and development of their people.  True development is the result of an individual being called to greatness, given challenging experiences and provided with coaching, support and feedback throughout. In this session, participants will learn the key elements of development and coaching along with many strategies for fast-tracking the development of future leaders.

Our guest speaker will be Alex Dorr, Certified Facilitator and full-time member of Cy Wakeman’s team.  Alex is a former professional basketball player for the Derby Trailblazers in Derby, England, holds a Master’s of Science in International Business, and a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration.  He is handpicked by Cy to deliver the Reality-Based message, collaborating with organizations to change their mindsets and succeed in spite of the challenging circumstances they face.  Join the Reality-Based Revolution as we break down the core competency of personal accountability and give you no nonsense, workable strategies to hire for, coach for, and develop for accountability in your workforce! 

Session Objectives:

  • Learn how our Ego avoids accountability at all cost and how Ego responds in challenging times at work and cause us to step down and blame circumstances.
  • Discover techniques and strategies to bypass the Ego to get employees into self-reflection – the key driver of accountability.
  • Recognize that engagement alone does not drive results, accountability actually leads to engagement and results.
  • Understand the four factors that drive accountability (Commitment, Resilience, Ownership and Continuous Learning) and how to coach themselves and others through those four factors in the moment.
  • Learn how accountability is actually developed, sustained and hardwired.
  • Be equipped with accountable coaching tools and strategies to help people through the ‘Change Sequence’ and be able to recognize where individuals may step out of accountability and how to call them back to greatness.
