  • Location: Wildcat Room, Norris
  • Presenters: Selena LeSure and Kimberly Higgins

Accountability exists in three forms: being held accountable, accepting accountability, and embracing accountability.  Most are familiar with being held accountable and routinely rate others not being held accountable as a top reason for their own dissatisfaction in the workplace. 

How do we transform this dissatisfaction into happiness?  In this session, you will learn to identify your personal level of accountability and how to foster the conditions that support a healthy accountable workplace.
