Shaping Your Buzz Through Accountability
During this, hilarious, and interactive keynote, participants will deepen their ability to see problems and provide solutions rather than blaming others or making excuses. Shifting to a culture of accountability requires leaders to remove fear from the workplace, coach and empower individuals to think things through, and manage teams that collaborate and take ownership of the most important things. Through a blend of improvisational comedy and cutting-edge research, you’ll recognize what a lack of accountability will cost you – and how to drive it throughout the culture at Iowa State University.
