Would you like to learn 3 accountability strategies to help you stay employed?
What is one reason why your organization should keep you?
One of my clients asked me to talk to her high-level administrative professionals on “Empowering Yourself to Success.” Her team is doing a GREAT job. My task was to encourage them to get to their next level of continuous improvement and dig deep discussing the 3 accountability strategies.
This blog post contains some of the content that I used in the training. I hope that you enjoy these ideas.
Make sure and share your concerns, stories, or questions about employee engagement…to reduce conflict in the workplace.
Accountability Strategy #1: Doing Your Personal BEST
The comments below are answers from my research to the question, “How do you do your personal best?”
- “I ask for more things to do.”
- “The more I know, the more I can contribute.”
- “I do what I can to make my boss look good.”
I shared the platform with Olympic Gold Medalist, Mary Lou Retton. She told me how she feels about doing your personal best.
“Champions don’t wait 4 years to make their heroic opportunity. They create an opportunity every day. Champions practice because they treat workouts as the Olympics. Anyone could win in the Olympics, but could doesn’t count.”
Accountability Strategy #2: Adding Value
- Make sure that you contribute more than you cost.
- Make a difference.
- Add enough value so that something very important would be missing if you left!
What are the reasons why your organization should keep you? Hey, if you don’t toot your own horn…who will? Your answer may be a good one to keep during your next evaluation. 🙂
Accountability Strategy #3: Use this post for a team meeting
Share this post with your team and ask them the same question on why the organization should keep them employed. This is a great team exercise which I use during my training.
- People who are modest are asked to go deep and share because we all need to know our strengths.
- People who like boasting about themselves are asked to be very honest and share their talents.
- The team will let them know if they are just bragging.
- Be careful with this one because at times conflict can come out of these transparent exercises. Conflict is great when things get resolved and communication goes deep.
- You know where to find me if you want me to help you discuss these important issues and hold each other accountable.
I want to hear from you
