A culture of accountability exists when employees feel ownership of processes, decisions, and results. As the glue that ties intention to results, creating a culture of accountability improves the quality of the organization’s products and services. In this workshop, we explore how supervisors can develop and maintain a culture of accountability. We will learn four key steps that help employees feel personal and genuine accountability for individual, team, and organizational success. We also focus on creating ethical organizational cultures that reflect internal and external accountability to all stakeholders. Beyond mere compliance programs, this class will help participants create and live by concrete moral principles and policies that govern their and their organization’s behaviors.


  • Understand the prerequisites to accountability
  • Recognize the differences between accountability and authority
