We’ve been taught to hide away from accountability. When things go wrong, we are wired to blame others. It’s a fight or flight response; it’s easier to run away or accuse another person of the wrongdoing. More so, most of us are unaware of these behaviours, so we tend to repeat them over and over again. The taboo around accountability ends right here. This seed looks at taking accountability for where you go wrong, owning up to your mistakes, and sharing it as a learning experience with the rest of your team. It reveals the importance behind this for yourself and for your team and organisation. These learnings will encourage a culture of learning, feedback, and empowerment in the workplace. The benefits of this ownership are endless.
We will explain the psychology behind why we hide away from accountability, how to step up and role-model taking accountability, how to stay away from the victim trap and avoid blaming others for mistakes, as well as how to encourage accountability in other work members. We will look at motivational theories that explain how to reinforce the positive behaviours you’re looking for. Furthermore, we’ll dive into the power of mindsets and the importance of learning from your successes and failures, which only occurs when you take ownership of your own actions. Accountability is an important value to acquire that’ll lead to a robust difference for your organisation.
All the seeds we offer are targeted bite-sized, robust skill development boosters. No longer than 90 minutes to 2 hours, we support our clients to receive the insights they’re looking for in a modular session, specifically focused on their own context and needs. They fit perfectly in a face-to-face or virtual session.
