Today’s organizations value accountable employees. People who consistently do what they say they’ll do (and do it to the best of their ability) are typically given greater responsibilities and opportunities. Wouldn't it be great if more employees fell into this category? This video program helps viewers see what it takes to get there by illustrating ten things accountable people do.
Can We Count on You? is a common sense program designed to put people—especially those entering the workforce for the first time—on the path to becoming highly valued employees. It provides a basic overview of what it takes to be seen as accountable, focusing on specific day-to-day workplace behaviours.
An onscreen host explains the relationship between personal accountability and job success, then walks viewers through ten scenes that illustrate what being accountable means:
Making Sure You Understand, Speaking and Writing Clearly, Doing What You Say You're Going to Do, Not Making Excuses, Learning From Mistakes, Being Ethical, Taking Initiative to Solve Problems, Serve Customers Professionally, Being a Team Player and Knowing How to Solve Your Own Conflicts.
The video can be played in "start and stop" mode (to allow for review and discussion around each behaviour); or, it can be played straight through. The Leader's Guide contains participant worksheets and activities on each of the ten scenarios, as well as an assessment to gauge levels of accountability.
