The current economic crisis is placing an increasing demand on leaders to be accountable and to raise the accountability of their people. But what does this really mean?

Compassionate power

Leaders and managers need to demonstrate compassionate power. This requires a ‘firm-hand’ that is balanced by a supportive, empathic, and understanding relationship. It requires clarity about what is expected while providing sufficient autonomy. It means clarifying the consequences of failing to meet expectations, while maintaining a caring and empathic rapport. This requires a very specific set of mindsets, habits and behaviours.

Highly interactive and insightful

We identify strengths and potential blindspots in relation to Raising Accountability. All participants complete a Work Preferences Questionnaire and receive their own Raising Accountability report specifying the traits for effective performance, as well as the traits that can undermine performance, including those which appear under stress.

Exploring tensions and paradoxes

We explore the tensions that exist when Raising Accountability. A behavioural paradox has two opposing or contradictory traits that are in fact complimentary, and synergistic. We explore the four key paradoxes that need to be balanced for effectiveness at driving performance. Participants engage in practical exercises to drive deep insight so they can explore the mindsets, habits and behaviours they need to adjust in order to become even more effective.

Awareness motivates change

This profound insight gives participants permission to let go of ineffective behaviours, and practise new and more effective ways of interacting with others. It also raises awareness and understanding of the ways in which our behaviours change in times of stress. The sudden increase in remote working is creating stress and this workshop increases managers ability to raise accountability while maintaining and increasing rapport – reducing a threat response. This unique workshop increases self-awareness at a profound level and motivates participants to develop new behaviours to make them even more effective at work, especially during challenging times.

Key Benefits of attending this session:

  • Understand the concept of Raising Accountability and why we need it now
  • Use the four paradoxes within Raising Accountability to explore behavioural preferences
  • Identify strengths and potential for development
  • Prepare a development plan focused on behaviours that will boost Raising Accountability.

Speaker Bio

You’re good with your hands…but your brother is the intelligent one

This is what I was told as a child. Having failed my 11+ exam, and being consigned to being ‘average’, I am living proof that anyone can be who they want to be and achieve a destiny beyond their dreams… and the low expectations of others.

Drawing on ground-breaking neuroscience research and brain-based coaching methods, I transform the behaviours of teams and individuals to deliver growth, engagement and profitability within world-class companies.

With a Masters in Business Analysis & Systems Design and as a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership and Management, I combine business acumen with an intimate knowledge of corporate culture. I am an accredited brain and behaviour specialist, with over 25 years experience, offering a series of world-renowned programmes to multi-national organisations, including HSBC, Louis Vuitton, Emirates, Siemens and Unilever.

Based on personal experience and sharing real-world examples, I have a passion for explaining – and overcoming – the limiting beliefs, fixed mindsets and biases that thwart the potential of so many.
