Certification Focuses on the Effective Delivery of the Five Program Modules:
  1. Accountability Through Strengths: The Key to Personal Responsibility
    Our research shows that taking ownership of personal responsibilities and taking initiative for results are the essential ingredients in developing personal and organizational accountability. Discover that while accountability is a choice you make, it’s also a skill you can develop. Learn why accountability systems (task management, meetings, etc.) can never effectively drive behavior change until they are linked to something deeper within you. Use your Strengths Portrait assessment to see the actions you typically use to achieve results. And begin using the Accountability Action Planner to delve into a high-stakes situation you’re facing with two key stakeholders at work.
  2. Understanding Your Core: The Drive for Accountability
    The Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI) provides an easy to understand look at how you prioritize a concern for People, Performance, and Process. Learn how your unique priorities drive the way you take ownership of your responsibilities. Discover how these priorities form the basis of your Motivational Value System (MVS) and the key to sustainable accountability. Participate in experiential activities to explore key MVS concepts and how they drive your decision-making. Use the SDI Quick Guide to further build your Accountability Action Planner, linking your high-stakes situation to what truly matters to you and your two stakeholders.
  3. The Impact of Filters: Owning Your Perceptions
    Filters help you frame a situation so you know where to focus your attention, but at times they block information that would be useful. Explore how filters affect your ability to accurately perceive situations and effectively take ownership of your responsibilities. Learn to see beyond the limitations of your filters to refine the assumptions you’re making about your stakeholders.
  4. Accountability in Conflict: Triggers and Changing Conditions
    Conflict can have a profound effect on a high-stakes situation and the people in it. Hone your ability to spot the sometimes subtle signs of conflict. Learn to choose strengths that de-escalate or prevent conflict. Discover how your Conflict Sequence (part of your SDI results) explains the changes in the motives you experience and the choices you make during conflict. Continue using your Accountability Action Planner to assess conflict in your high-stakes situation and capture ways to improve your effectiveness.
  5. Working With Core Strengths: Developing the Skill of Accountability
    Learning new skills is meaningless if they aren’t put to good use. Learn how to put the skill of accountability to work. Use your Accountability Action Planner as a guide to select more productive strengths to use in your high-stakes situation and in your interactions with your two stakeholders. Practice taking initiative with your chosen strengths. Learn how to link any strength to your core and take ownership for your results.
