    Speaker: David A. O'Brien

    At every level of every organization, projects begin, tasks are assigned, efforts are made and deadlines are met – or missed.  Directions are given but not always understood.  Deliverables are promised but not always delivered and agreements are made but not always followed.  It’s not really any one person’s fault, it’s just part of how people fail to communicate in a specific and deliberate manner about the tasks they assign or accept.  The Building a Culture of Accountability program provides a systematic way to overcome these common barriers by focusing on a 4-phase accountability continuum which includes; Role Clarity, Purpose, Ownership and Behavior, when linked, this continuum allows employees at all levels to make significant progress with moving tasks forward to achieve a higher level of job impact and job satisfaction.
