LEADERSHIP WORKSHOPS

 

Accountability: The Key to Driving a High-Performance Culture

Companies like Container Store, Ernst & Young, Marriott and Southwest Airlines know a culture where accountability matters separates over-performers from underachievers. Greg knows because he has interviewed leaders at these and other highly respected companies to gain insights into the role accountability plays in driving performance. Yet when Greg surveyed more than 5,000 executives, they said “lack of accountability” is the single greatest barrier to achieving the results they expect. This popular leadership workshop helps attendees learn how to build, nurture and sustain accountability through the Seven Pillars of Accountability™.

If It’s Not Broken, Break It, Then Fix It

Who’s your competition? It may not be who you think it is. Exceptional leaders identify and calculate the impact of potential threats to their organization’s sustainable performance—no matter how seemingly insignificant. Greg argues that even if your organization isn’t broken, you should consider breaking it and then fixing it—before you’re forced to do so. This leadership workshop helps executives assess their appetite for change, identify seven factors that threaten organizational performance, and connect the dots that drive future success. The workshop abandons predictable territory while offering proven, practical insights, exercises and tools to open minds and prepare leaders for the next big thing.

Lead the Way

Successful companies win because their employees are united in a common purpose. Yet each year, hundreds of companies fail to achieve their objectives because they fail to plan. Many small- and mid-sized companies don’t plan at all. Other companies mistake budgeting for planning. Planning is a waste of time when leaders don’t trust one another enough to discuss the meaty issues strangling performance. Plans fail when commitment is lukewarm. CEOs say, “Give me a fast, simple process my team will believe in and that will produce bottom-line results.” Greg delivers in this highly-interactive leadership workshop. Leaders learn how to: build agreement on priorities that create the most significant positive impact; develop a concise, simple plan that produces results; achieve buy-in from every employee; and drive performance and accountability with easy-to-use models for monitoring and measuring performance.

Three Truths: Resolving Conflict & Creating Happy Relationships

“There are three truths: my truth, your truth and the truth.” This Chinese proverb explains why clear communication is so elusive. When things don’t go as planned, a breakdown in communications is usually the reason. Intellectually, we know that a problem cannot be fixed until it is exposed, discussed, and acted upon. Yet, we often avoid, ignore or even enable under-performers, hoping the situation will improve. Greg shows leaders how to break down barriers that stymie productive communication between offices, departments and individuals as they pursue a common goal. During this half-day or one-day workshop designed for eight to 30 participants, executives learn how to: understand the seven levels of truth; turn conflict into collaboration; address the four fatal fears that stifle personal and organizational growth; apply proven conflict management principles and effective problem-solving processes.

– Patricia Dameron, Executive Director, PRSM Association

-Hans Poortvliet, Managing Director, HSMAI, The Netherlands

“Greg’s accountability workshop with 35 of our leaders provided a great kick-off to new initiatives we’d been discussing for some time.  His workshop was incredibly well-received by our leaders, and helped break down silos between departments and prompt meaningful conversations about performance, metrics and rewards.  We’re bringing Greg back for round two in a few months.”

-Hank Miltenberger, President and CEO, Gilsbar, New Orleans, LA

“Driving accountability consistently through an organisation is an obvious way to drive performance—yet is remarkably uncommon.  Greg managed to put over a straightforward and clear approach to driving accountability in an engaging way.”

-Andy Start, Managing Director, Inmarsat, London, England
