(Last Modified:23-Apr-2015)


Provides a step-by-step process for how managers can identify and resolve performance gaps, strengthen accountability, eliminate inconsistency, and reduce resentment throughout an office or organization.
  • Step up to poor performance and pick the right problem to work on by addressing underlying motivation and ability issues.
  • Hold anyone accountable—no matter the other person’s power, position, or temperament—and get positive results.
  • Motivate without using power by clearly and concisely explaining natural consequences and permanently resolving problems.
  • Enable without taking over by creatively helping others avoid excuses and work-rounds, stay on track, and resolve performance barriers.
  • Target Attendees
    Crucial Accountability training is ideal for all acquisition personnel who manage people or processes as well as those who have supervisory or cross-functional management responsibilities. For true change to be achieved, involving teams and even entire organizations is essential. Class size - minimum 12 to maximum 30.
