Session: Team Cohesion through Accountability

Workshop overview:

As a key tenet of cohesive teams, how ready are you to hold team members accountable?  

Participants in the Team Cohesion through Accountability workshop are invited to explore the role of accountability as a key component of cohesive teams. In the context of teamwork, accountability means the willingness of team members to call their peers on counterproductive performance or behaviors.  In this workshop we will discover the willingness of team members to take on the interpersonal discomfort of addressing counterproductive behavior and how to move beyond the more general tendency to avoid difficult conversations. 

In the Team Cohesion through Accountability workshop we will:

  • Define accountability and how it relates to cohesive teams

  • Explore areas of improvement in accountability within the organization

    • Overall

    • Within teams based in one geography  

    • Within Tulsa based team

  • Experience a tool to help define accountability by role and task across the organization

  • Discover your default approach to handling difficult conversations and identify areas of self-improvement

  • Outline what is at stake if accountability is not established and sustained within and across the team
