The Point: Keller Williams Beach Cities
Speaker: Ellie Shoja & Neloo Naderi
How to Cultivate a Culture of Accountability That Sticks 

accountabilityAccording to a 2009 study by Social Science Research Network (SSRN), when a policy of 100% integrity is adopted within an organization, productivity increases between 100 - 500%.

There is, however, an often-inverse relationship between integrity and commitment. This can break down morale, ultimately compromising the project’s scope while derailing the project off-budget or off-schedule.

In this one-hour interactive training session, we help PMs identify the hidden cracks in a project’s foundation, and provide practical, actionable tools they can adopt right away to inspire cooperation, increase accountability and optimize performance.
