"The Accountability Gap - How To Fill It In - In Your Culture, Leadership and People"
Tammy Sturge, Partner, HR Transformations

Everyone seems to agree that it is the action of Accountability that drives the organization's ability to achieve results and meet goals. And yet, companies continue to struggle with an "accountability gap" that erodes the organization's core strengths. A McKinsey study of CEO's rated it as one of the top three organization issues in North America.
How can you create a culture of accountability? What would be possible if your people were consistently accountable? How do you move people from task orientation to results orientation? How can leadership hold themselves accountable for objectives and results?

"Strategies to Help Managers Move From Problems to Building Solutions Through Coaching"
Robert Maxwell, President and CEO, TGT Solutions Inc.
