Does a culture that prioritizes accountability connect to your bottom line? Absolutely!

At the end of the day, there are two kinds of leaders: those who do not get why it is vitally important to build and sustain an accountable culture and those who do. This program makes a compelling case for investing in an accountable workplace culture … and offers a clear, five-step action plan for making it happen in your organization.

What does it look like when EVERY member of your organization keeps their commitments? When truth and values are held in the highest esteem? When authenticity permeates all relationships? It looks like next-level success. It feels like positive momentum. It lays the foundation for creativity, collaboration and high performance.

Sam knows first-hand how to create a corporate culture that engages employees, maximizes productivity, and inspires accountability. You’ll walk away from his program with highly effective tools to build trust, enhance engagement, cultivate more meaningful relationships, and truly come together as a cohesive team. There’s never been a more important time to create a shift in culture and commitment.

During this program, participants will learn how to:

  • Design a culture based on commitments and values

The Theory of AccountabilityTM recasts the well-known formula of E=mc2 as the Accountability Equation, which holds the secret to inspiring a radical transition in how individuals show up in their own lives to accomplish their purpose and serve others. This equation reveals that the Experience we create is the result of the Mindset we embrace and the exponential impact of our Commitment. By attending to the three critical factors that determine the level of accountability in one’s life, organization, and community, readers will discover how to design and step into a future that is firmly grounded in a clear sense of purpose and possibility.

The Theory of AccountabilityTM forces a reconsideration of how we view accountability. As Silverstein explains, “Accountability is not a way of doing. Accountability is a way of thinking about people through the lens of Experience, Mindset, and Commitment.” When individuals and leaders actively create the future they want to live, frame their mindset around abundance rather than fear, and take persistent, relentless action in support of the experience they are generating, their beliefs, and their relationships, they will experience personal and organizational transformation unlike any other!

During this program, participants will learn how to:

  • Identify the three mindsets of accountability and how to apply them personally and organizationally
  • Create a specific outcome/goal and achieve it every time
  • Empower a team to identify priorities, eliminate obstacles, and enhance communication
  • Discover and leverage the enormous power of commitments both individually and at all levels of the organization

Change is an integral part of our world. The ability to get ahead of it, manage it, or initiate it for any organization falls squarely on the shoulders of leadership.

It’s time to show excuses the door. Whether at work or at home, people often make excuses out of over-commitment, lack of understanding, or poor time management. In a world where there are more resources available than ever before – it’s time to get to the bottom line. Ultimately, they make excuses by focusing on what they cannot control instead of focusing on what they can control.

  • Improve your relationships through keeping commitments
  • Eliminate excuses that hold you back from their potential
