Strategic Leadership 201: Clarifying Roles to Improve Execution

Course Description 
Holding people accountable in a manner that is perceived to be fair can be a difficult task. People often resist being held accountable out of fear of being unfairly blamed for things. Leaders often resist holding others accountable out of fear of having difficult conversations. As a result, supposedly agreed upon tasks are not executed properly, but little or nothing is done to solve the problem of accountability. 

Learning Outcomes
By the end of this course, you should be able to:
  • Explain how to build a culture of accountability that is perceived to be fair by all parties.
  • Identify ways to build mutual accountability to project teams.
  • Apply tools they can use to work with a boss or colleagues to set expectations and to establish clear roles and responsibilities together.
