Leadership Accountability

Leaders in today's complex business environment need to do more than just manage: They need to take initiative and lead their business in the right direction.

Leadership skills can be maximized through leadership development, which arms leaders and managers with the knowledge, skills and motivation to align with the organization’s business priorities, be accountable for success, and lead others in the execution of strategy.

Experience

Working in small teams, participants dive into a business storyline. They are challenged to demonstrate the Business Impact Accountabilities as they interact with direct reports and peer leaders and track the impact of their (and others’) decisions on customers, the organization, and its financials.

They face talent issues, make complex decisions about interdepartmental relationships, and balance tactical approaches with the strategic priorities.

Participants are engaged from start to finish as they discover how their decisions and actions affect the bottom line and how their behaviors, as part of the organization’s collective leadership team, impact its ultimate success.
