does accountability increase workplace engagement? [podcast]
By o.c. tanner in Engagement, Great Work, O.C. Tanner Institute, and Podcast
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.
