CEU : 0.1
PDH : 1


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.

By the end of this session, attendees will 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 


Dr. Michael Seitchik has over 30 years of experience in designing and delivering customized programs to executives at major corporations in a wide variety of industries around the world. His experience includes 9 years as the Director of Program Development at the Wharton School where he ran all customized and open enrollment programs. His powerful approach to executive education was recognized by The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, the Financial Times, USA Today, and The Globe & Mail.
