Iwana Ridgill will return on March 14th to
Northeast State at Bristol to present her three hour workshop -
Accountability in the Workplace.
The Accountability in the Workplace program focuses on how to overcome the tendency to blame circumstances (and others) when we don’t succeed at projects and goals. Accountability is defined as “owning one’s circumstances” and accepting responsibility for decisions and behavior. The Oz Principle book will be used as a guide to four steps toward more accountable attitudes and behavior: See It, Own It, Solve It, Do It. The four main characters from the movie The Wizard of Oz are used to symbolize each of the four steps. Through the use of several self-evaluation instruments in the book, participants will have an opportunity to consider how they can rise “above the line” in holding themselves more accountable for workplace activities, behavior, interactions, projects, and goals.
Several have signed up and should have received confirmations. We still have more free seats. Please contact Diana Harrison (email@example.com or 423.354.5520) for additional information or assistance with registration. We will make any remaining seats available to the business community.
