This unique development series develops managers into Accountable leaders and change agents in order to improve performance and achieve measurable business results that provide a return on investment.
Accountability-Based Leadership (ABL) is a customized leadership development series delivered over a six-month period. Participants learn processes and skills to develop future leaders and address non-performance. While most training programs emphasize case studies and role-playing, this series focuses on the managers’ real workplace situations, tracks results and measures actual performance and behavior improvements at the end of the series. The typical assignment will include the following topics and deliverables, implemented over time:
Session 1: Preparing for Change
Fundamentals of accountable leadership and how to expand the role of managers to become leaders and change agents.
