Workshop: Crucial accountability

March 23, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

This is a one-day workshop, with a 90-minute follow-up session, on crucial accountability. This course teaches a straightforward, step-by-step process for identifying and resolving performance gaps, strengthening accountability, eliminating inconsistency and reducing resentment.

It uses video, group discussions, skill practice and real-life application to make the course both entertaining and engaging.

As an attendee, you will:

  • Learn to focus on what you really want — rather than shifting to unhealthy emotional reactions such as trying to win others over to your view, discrediting others or even causing them grief.
  • Gain control over your emotions by cutting off disappointment, anger and fear at the source.
  • Spot when either you or others are slipping into either silence or violence and, as a result, putting safety at risk and starving the pool of shared meaning.
  • Learn to dispel misunderstanding and distrust by clarifying misunderstood motives and establishing mutual purpose.
  • Reduce defensiveness by starting with facts and only tentatively sharing conclusions.
  • Turn attacking into dialogue by identifying and responding to others’ unhealthy conclusions.

Facilitated by: Lori A. Aemisegger, VitalSmarts Master Trainer

Date: Monday, April 23

Time: 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (Breakfast and lunch provided)
