Accountability can be a difficult subject. How to hold people to account assertively, without raising defensiveness, can be even harder. This 60 minute workshop is part of the virtual Thinking Leadership series. The aim is to share experience and resolve everyday leadership problems in a peer group. It will review participants’ actions, which were agreed at the previous session, and will explore the subject in more detail.

  • Ensure personal accountability as a leader.
  • Reduce the fear of confrontation.
  • Achieve assertive conversations on accountability.

The minimum performance you allow is the maximum you can expect.


It can be defined as a personal choice to rise above one’s circumstances and demonstrate the ownership necessary for achieving desired results.  High performance cultures do not happen by accident, but by leaders embedding accountability into the work culture and role modelling the behaviours.

‘How can I give negative feedback without raising defensiveness or upsetting people?’ Many managers avoid holding people to account for fear of conflict or upsetting them. The workshop looks at the courage needed by leaders to have those difficult conversations to achieve the desired result. You will again have the opportunity to resolve your specific issues with your peers.


This practical workshop will enable you to be more assertive and increase your confidence to hold people to account. As a result, it will allow you to have more satisfactory interactions with others. Furthermore, you can learn about integrity, coaching others, and giving feedback.
