At a time when resources are limited and the need to improve business results is paramount, developing and maintaining an organizational culture that focuses on execution is critical. Individual, team, and cross-functional accountability are key elements of a successful organization and culture; what can we as strategic HR leaders do to ensure such a culture exists. The June 8, 2011 CHO Group sessions in Seattle and Phoenix, “Accountable Leadership: Where Culture And Business Results Connect.” featured Mark Samuel. Mark is the internationally acclaimed author of Creating the Accountable Organization and co-author of The Power of Personal Accountability, Achieve What Matters to You. His presentation focused on practical and innovative approaches to improving execution, adaptability, retention of top talent, and achieving business results. He shared strategies and tools for building ownership at all levels, breaking down “silo” and “blame-game” behaviors, and inspiring employees to raise the bar on current standards.
