Cultivating Accountability

According to a Harris Interactive poll, less than 10% of employees feel their companies hold them accountable. Why? No one really enjoys holding others accountable. Isn’t it true that leaders would prefer to hire accountable people? Unfortunately, accountability isn’t that easy. This course brings awareness to the necessity of accountability in a culture. It calls out what a culture of blame can create through missed opportunities and disempowering conversations. Through the MPS Cultivating Accountability Program (CAP), team members learn to use a method to get back into their personal power by taking responsibility, therefore enabling them to focus on their priorities and keep distractions and counter-productive behavior to a minimum.


McGhee’s Cultivating Accountability Program challenges participants to take a serious look at individual, team, and organizational accountability. It demonstrates how accountability begins with personal responsibility. The participants will actively engage in accountability conversations, learn the destructive nature of blame and the power of taking ownership for results. Conversations and exercises build experience in the team and begin to create a more distinct understanding of accountability. Accountability is not simple as it changes based on the nature of a person’s role and magnitude of the work they are responsible for. Participants will leave with a clear understanding of the level of accountability they are operating within as we discuss basic, intermediate, and advanced accountability skills. A culture of accountability can be built on the distinctions and methods from this course. 


The Cultivating Accountability Program is a three-phase process:  1. Two hours with stakeholders reviewing the one-day program and its components to create awareness and motivation.  Two hours aligning with leaders on customizations to the content to best suit the team’s goals. 2. Completing a one-day off-site retreat where the team participates, learns, and applies the material and the methods. This includes instruction, discussion, exercises, debriefing, and empowering conversations. 3. Follow-up coaching sessions to support sustainability, with full access to our online McGhee Learning System.

"I have been using the Integrated Management System daily since taking the TBYL training three weeks ago. The past three weeks have been, by far, the most productive weeks since joining this company almost six years ago. Not only do I have a better handle on the items driving my objectives, I feel like I have less stress and more work/life balance as well. I recently talked with a co-worker who said, 'I can’t afford to take a full day out for training'. My response? You can’t afford NOT to take a day out for this training, it will truly change the way you work and live your life."
