Today’s Reality?

Most people won’t become accountable just because you tell them to… or, even if you ask them very nicely.

That’s because true accountability is a choice. People choose to hold themselves accountable – to take personal responsibility for their actions.

In the past, attempts to get accountability were all about techniques for getting their people to do things. But these techniques didn’t always connect. In fact, at best they would only generate compliance – not a true sense of ownership and real accountability.

Today, as a manager, you need your people to take ownership for producing results.

A key advantage of the Core Strengths approach is you are working with an easy-to-use, agreeable set of tools that team members can embrace. Because they get to learn more about the most valuable qualities in themselves.

Best of all, you can give each team member a unique, personalised, self-generated reason to take initiative, to innovate, and to make smart decisions.

In short, the Core Strengths Workshop gives you:

  • A way to get buy-in from each team member, to be accountable, and
  • A complete system to create a culture of accountability in your teams.
    This is important. Recently, Gallup’s State of the Global Workplace study found that only 13% of employees worldwide are fully engaged at work. The Core Strengths Accountability approach can help you dramatically increase the level of employee engagement at your organisation–in a matter of days or weeks.

Core Strengths Accountability begins by integrating three business priorities:

  • People: helping and developing others
  • Performance: directing action and achieving results
  • Process: establishing clear and meaningful order

Case Study: More Collaboration, Plus Drastically Reduced Employee Turnover

A large bank was concerned that its managers weren’t being accountable for problems in their branches. They were referring too many interpersonal conflicts to Human Resources. Core Strengths Accountability training improved their interpersonal skill ratings by 67%. Additionally, a subsequent study showed that these managers cut the amount of time they spent dealing with conflict by 25%. When the managers chose to take accountability for their high-stake situations, they not only improved real-time results, they also cut their employee turnover rate in half.

“Core Strengths has made a difference in our organisation. Managers are using strength-based skills in their coaching conversations, and reporting they are more effective than ever before.”
–Jonathan McGrael, Sales Director, Arbor Pharmaceuticals

Put Your Plan Into Action

All managers complete an in-class action plan that prepares them to apply the skill of choosing the right strengths in a high-stakes situation at work. This brings the learning to life by connecting key concepts from the training with real-world challenges from a familiar context. Not only are managers encouraged to put their new insights to an immediate test, but they are also given a consistent process to follow in other situations, thus making Core Strengths sustainable long after the initial classroom session.
