De-weaponized accountability for high-performing teams

Accountability is a term that routinely demoralizes, often confuses, and flat-out scares people these days. Accountability, as practiced in small and medium-sized businesses, sometimes means that someone will be called out, blamed, and maybe even shamed for work that isn’t up to par for the failure that kicked off the accountability session in the first place. The sad thing is that people only know what they know, and nobody has taught them what accountability could be and how it can actually build the bonds of trust and drive performance in a positive, forward-focused way. Until now.

In this engaging webinar with 2022 Speaker of the Year Robert “Cujo” Teschner, viewers get a small peek into the world of high-performance teams and begin to understand the upside of accountability practiced correctly. Walk away with a definition of what accountability truly is and how it serves the team. Learn the basic outline of how team accountability — when done well — serves the team, helps the team bond in the midst of failure, and helps the team build trust as it learns. Nobody else teaches or practices accountability this way. And now, you can get a little insight into how you can build teams that win the high-performance team way!
