Developing Personal Accountability
If your manager's approval isn't quite enough to motivate you to put in that extra effort you need to get ahead, then maybe you're ready to work on your personal accountability. Everyone must answer to an inner manager - an internal voice that tells you whether the job is done as well as you can do it. Choosing personal accountability means earning the approval of that inner manager. In this course, you'll learn the behaviors of accountable professionals, including stating commitments clearly and following through. You'll also learn how some very common behaviors, like making excuses and blaming others, work against accountability. The elements of an action plan for developing personal accountability are provided. Finally, you'll learn how the members of a team can improve their accountability together.

Becoming an Accountable Professional
Unless you're the sole owner and proprietor, everyone in a business answers to someone else. From the CEO to the temp in accounting, every employee has someone they're accountable to. But the judgment and approval of the boss isn't enough, by itself, to make a job rewarding. Everyone must also answer to an inner boss, a personal, internal voice that provides guidance on whether the job is done as well as you can do it. Accepting personal accountability means your setting demanding standards and committing to meeting them. Further, personal accountability is also key to successful business networking. It's a necessary part of building trust and relationships. In this course, you'll learn how to listen to your inner boss, focus on meeting your internal standards, and apply them to your work, your goals, and your future.

Developing a Personal Accountability Framework
You are juggling a lot of competing tasks.  Meeting deadlines, production targets, and business objectives are serious responsibilities. It's tempting, at times, to find easy ways out of fulfilling them, or to use excuses as to why you can't. But to be accountable is part of being a professional. Demonstrating your personal and professional accountability is key to your ongoing success. Building accountability is a process of showing that you're a reliable, organized, and dedicated person, and further, ensuring  accountability means taking ownership of your responsibilities. In this course you'll learn how to show leadership accountability, implementing strategies for setting goals, developing an action plan, and seeing all those competing tasks through to completion.
