• Crucial Accountability


    Register for the Crucial Accountability Workshop


    Crucial Accountability Training teaches a straightforward step-by-step process for identifying and resolving performance gaps, strengthening accountability, eliminating inconsistency and reducing resentment.

    Confrontations are about in-the-moment face-to-face accountability. Crucial conversations comprise the very foundations of accountability, and when they are handled poorly, they result in failed promises, missed expectations, lack of accountability, and bad behavior. Put Crucial Confrontations Training to work and make rapid and substantial improvements in individual, team, and organizational results.

    Crucial Accountability Training directly addresses gaps between expectations and performance with a model that ensures individual, team, and organizational effectiveness. Learn to hold people accountable, master face-to-face performance discussions, motivate without using power, enable without taking over, and move to action. Crucial Accountability Training will improve results and enhance relationships.
