Achieving Results through Accountability

Kristy Frieden, Facilitator

A thin line separates success from failure, the great companies from the ordinary ones. Below the line lies excuse making, blaming others, confusion, and an attitude of helplessness while above the line we find a sense of ownership, commitment, solutions to problems, and action. While losers languish below the line, sharing stories to explain why past efforts went awry, winners live above the line, empowered by commitment and hard work. People and organizations find themselves thinking and behaving below the line whenever they consciously or unconsciously avoid accountability for individual or collective results. 

Noon - 1 p.m.
Lunch

1 - 4 p.m.
Assess Your Listening Habits

Deb Easton, Facilitator

Through the use of self-tests and role-play skill building exercises, this program is designed to assess and enhance participants’ listening skills. Emphasis is placed on understanding the message from the talker’s point of view and responding appropriately even when disagreeing. Anyone interested in learning ways to determine the true meaning behind a talker’s words, prevent time-wasting conversations and respond to the issue being presented (not the emotionally-charged dynamics of a difficult conversation) should attend.
