You’ll probably recognize this: as a leader or a colleague, you’ve held thorough discussions and made clear agreements. Yet people often don’t follow up on their commitments. It seems like others simply don’t get it, even though it’s clear to you. What can you do?

There is clearly a gap between expectations and actual results. Even though it looks as though the other person “doesn’t get it,” there can any number of underlying causes. The training Crucial Accountability teaches you how to analyze the situation and help the other close the gap. You’ll use the Crucial Conversations skills supplemented by additional skills from the model Six Sources of Influence™.

This training can be used as a powerful one-day follow-up to the training Crucial Conversations, but is also extremely effective as a two-day stand-alone training. The training is appropriate for everyone who works with others and is partially or completely dependent on the contributions of others.

What to expect in training (3 min.)

WHO BENEFITS FROM CRUCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY

INDIVIDUALS

The training is useful for everyone who relies on the efforts of others. Participants learn to address accountability issues without damaging, but rather strengthening, their relationships.

TEAMS

When team members dare to hold each other accountable for commitments, and ineffective behavior is turned into effective behavior, a new, “high-performance” culture develops.

ORGANIZATIONS

In an organization where employees and (informal) leaders can hold each other accountable for their commitments, and where ineffective behavior is turned into effective behavior, a new culture is created: a “high-performance culture.”

THE EFFECTS OF CRUCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY

STRENGTHEN ACCOUNTABILITY

Participants learn how they can effectively talk with others about broken commitments in a way which leads to two-way responsibility and improved cooperation.

SPEED UP PROBLEM SOLVING

Consistent use of the skills and insights leads to quicker problem solving, decision making, and conflict resolution. Keep projects on track not by taking over, but by taking obstacles out of the way.

INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY

When problems are quickly solved or even avoided, productivity increases and relationships become stronger. Improvement in these two factors for success will also improve the company’s results.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY

Abbott Laboratories
Abbott Laboratories - Arnoud de Jonge, Director of Operational Excellence and Business Operations

How do you improve teamwork? Abbott Nutrition has implemented the Influencer training over the last few years. We've certified in-house trainers that have trained from Spain to Singapore and from India to Chicago. Many of our locations have noticed the powerful change that Influencer brought in creating effective behavior. The interactive training method has proven to be successful and has contributed to winning the prestigious 'Shingo' prize at four Abbott factories, an award that focuses primarily on “getting the best out of your people”.

SBM Offshore
SBM Offshore - Jetske van de Schaaf, Global HR business partner Governance and Strategy

As a project engineering organization, we realize that "technical brains" are often less strong in speaking up, especially on difficult topics. The result we see after 2 years of intensive Crucial Conversations training, is that the awareness of our managers and professionals improves and that engagement and exceptional team performance are not created by directive leadership and silence, but by stepping into dialogue, truly understanding each other and then find the solutions that improve results.
