Accountability at Work

Effective leaders expect accountability in all aspects of employee performance, from day-to-day actions and decisions to the achievement of long-term goals. In this course, participants will examine their current attitudes toward and approaches to accountability, beginning with their ability to model it. They will also explore the dynamics of accountability and learn the behaviors and practices that set the foundation for a culture of accountability on a team or in an organization.
