Step Up to
Is lack of
accountability an issue in your organization?
Do co-workers in key positions get caught up in the blame game, feeling
that their performance is held hostage by circumstances outside of their
Has Denial, Finger Pointing, Protecting Yourself, and Delay & Pray
become fine art forms for escaping the stark reality of poor results?
At Teambuilding, Inc. we see these issues every day: A sales team
complaining that marketing cant get the brochures right, marketing
insisting that manufacturing isnt designing products that the customer
wants, manufacturing pointing at quality assurance for poor controls,
managers who triumphantly coalesce around a central theme: Its senior

with bewilderment because they cant get their act together.
The Step Up to Accountability program will help team members:

discussions will revolve around common accountability misconceptions
itself is a negative consequence of failure

are an escape from personal accountability
While most feel
that they are the passive recipients of culture, in truth, we co-create
culture every day. Owning our individual, then collective contribution
to how things are done around here is an important step in shaping
culture to the benefit of all involved.
Participants of Step Up to Accountability are guided
through a step by step process that builds a comprehensive plan for
achieving collective accountability: To Perceive, Commit, and Execute.
Participants will collectively determine the relationship between the
environment they create and the results they deliver. Participants
discover how taking ownership of their environment is the key to
increasing not just productivity, but morale, self satisfaction, and
Accountability is not a consequence to be feared, but the engine to
personal growth, shared results, and collective success. Step Up to
Accountability will guide your team through the accountability process with a an
engaging, interactive experience that will produce the blueprint for
