Today’s Reality? Managers can’t make people accountable.

That’s right – true accountability is a choice. People choose to hold themselves accountable — to take personal responsibility for their actions. In the past, accountability was all about techniques for getting their people to do things. But these techniques don’t always connect. In fact, they tend to generate nothing more than compliance – not a true sense of ownership and real accountability. Today, managers need people to take ownership for producing results. That’s where Core Strengths comes in. Our training helps managers create a culture of accountability in teams.

Equip managers to succeed. Give them the tools to take initiative, innovate, and make smart decisions. Give them the Core Strengths Accountability advantage.

Core Strengths Accountability begins by integrating three business priorities:

  • People – helping and developing others
  • Performance – directing action and achieving results
  • Process – establishing clear and meaningful order

“A large bank was concerned that its managers weren’t being accountable for problems in their branches. They were referring too many interpersonal conflicts to Human Resources. Core Strengths Accountability training improved their interpersonal skill ratings by 67%. Additionally, a subsequent study showed that these managers cut the amount of time they spent dealing with conflict by 25%. When the managers chose to take accountability for their high-stake situations, they not only improved real-time results, they also cut their employee turnover rate in half.”

Put Your Plan Into Action

All managers complete an in-class action plan that prepares them to apply the skill of choosing the right strengths in a high-stakes situation at work. This brings the learning to life by connecting key concepts from the training with real-world challenges from a familiar and time-sensitive context. Not only are managers encouraged to put their new insights to an immediate test, but they are also given a clear and repeatable process to follow in other situations, thus making Core Strengths Accountability sustainable long after the initial classroom experience.
