Have you ever been held accountable for the results that you produce? Learn about the implications of being results focused in an organisation.

  Enroll in Course

The current focus on results when considering what leaders are accountable for creates the condition where leaders do things that are short term in implication and create the conditions where their subordinates experience them as being fundamentally expedient.

Care and Growth Applied – Clarifying Contribution - Setting Standards:

This module gives you the understanding of what it means to construct a standard of contribution on what a leader should personally contribute rather than the results required from his area. This enables you both to be clear in specifying requirements of subordinates and to focus your own activity appropriately.

At the end of this module you will be able to:

  • Distinguish between responsibility and accountability.
  • Identify the 4 permutations of accountability.
  • Identify and define the unique contribution of anyone in a leadership position.
  • Apply the insights to what people in your organization are held accountable for.
  • Define which of your own activities should gain priority.
