Leading and Coaching People to Take Responsibility and Demonstrate Ownership

This workshop is in cooperation with  Christopher Avery & Partnerwerks. Workshop is led by Ilker Demirel, accredited coach for The Leadership Gift.

Field-tests about how personal responsibility works in the mind (i.e., how we avoid it and how we take it) now make it possible for leaders and coaches to understand and teach the mental processes, language, and keys to personal responsibility.

Doing so inspires the people you lead or coach to demonstrate far greater ownership behavior as individuals, teams, and even as entire enterprises. You add more value as people you lead or coach take ownership and learn, correct, and improve more easily, directly, and quickly.

The Experience

This is a highly interactive and experiential workshop, including numerous learning exercises, dialog, Q&A, as well as teaching points.

Learning Objectives
At the End of the Workshop
At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to complete the following tasks upon request:

●      Explain the importance of personal responsibility (ownership behavior) for success in any pursuit;

●      Provide at least one reason why people avoid responsibility and why they take it;

●      State the stages within The Responsibility Process™ and how it works within the mind;

●      Self-apply The Responsibility Process™ when encountering minor frustrations;

●      Describe why “giving advice” is one of the weakest strategies to guide others to take responsibility and explain at least one other alternative which would be more effective;

●      Utilize at least one tool which will help those who you lead (or coach) to take responsibility and demonstrate ownership behavior; and

●      Apply the 3 Keys to Responsibility™ at least once during the workshop so you can recall and apply readily to your minor upsets after the workshop.

Back at Work
Once participants return to their workplace, they should be ready to put the following skills to use:

●      Explain the basic concepts of The Responsibility Process™ and the 3 Keys to Responsibility™ to those you lead (and coach);

●      Progressively apply the 3 Keys to Responsibility to your larger upsets; and

●      Apply the basic principles for teaching responsibility to those whom you lead (and coach).
