In this session of the Great Work Insights Podcast, Todd Nordstrom speaks with Cy Wakeman, a national keynote speaker, business consultant and New York Times bestselling author. Her newest book, The Reality-Based Rules of the Workplace shows employees how to calculate their true value to their organization.

You will learn:

  • Accountability is not a dirty word–it’s seen as negative because it puts blame on people.
  • Four areas of focus with accountability: commitment, resilience, ownership, and continuous learning.
  • Accountable people believe engagement is a choice, not something the organization creates for me.
  • Three classifications of accountable faults: high-accountable leaders need to teach how to not judge others; mid-accountable teach how results are based on behavior; low-accountable people need to change their lifestyle.
  • Accountability increases workplace engagement.
  • Engagement without accountability creates entitlement. Accountability drives engagement and results.
  • Huge connection between happiness and accountability.
  • Complaining is a waste of time and energy.
  • How negative behavior impacts the workplace–suffering is optional.
