Free webinar trains accountability

PricePaidForLackofAT

A free webinar from Partners In Leadership will show how accountability “is the answer to increasing revenues, decreasing costs, and successfully implementing key initiatives,” the company says.

The authors of the book, The Oz Principle: Getting Results Through Individual and Organizational Accountability, will show you how their clients have used the training to achieve record-setting results, “like an increase in stock price from $.31 cents/share to $22 dollars/share in about 2 years,” the company says.

“Accountability is the guiding principle that defines how we make commitments to one another; how we measure and report our progress; how we interact when things go wrong, and how much ownership we take to get things done. It is, in essence, the nerve center that runs throughout every part of the organization, through every working relationship to every member of every team.”
Thousands of companies and hundreds of thousands of people in more than 50 countries use accountability training, the book’s authors claim.

The session is in on Wednesday, November 14, 2012, from 10am – 11am PST.
