Linda Galindo – Accountable Leadership

Accountable Leadership: How to Increase Productivity and Improve Performance, with Linda Galindo, The voice of Accountability™, Speaker, Author, Blogger and Educator

 Is Your Organization Results-Driven or Activity-Driven, and Other Money-Saving Questions.

Accountability is serious business.   Nothing wastes more time and money than a lack of accountability. Nothing causes top-performing employees to leave more often than a lack of accountability from their managers. Lack of accountability is often behind everything from business scandals, negative news headlines, court cases and even bad social media reviews.

There are so many ways that individuals and organizations can display a lack of accountability, and this session will delve into them all:

  • Aversion to conflict.
  • Habit of “rescue, fix and save” underperformers instead of holding them accountable.
  • More important to be liked than to be effective.
  • Claim that human resources won’t let them hold people accountable.
  • Don’t like to be clear about what is expected so they can keep their options open.
  • Prefer to hope things work out versus getting an up-front commitment to success.

As The Voice of Accountability™, Linda Galindo knows how to deliver a stirring, motivating, meaningful message about each person’s role in the success of their own career and the larger organizations they work in. It begins with engaging, entertaining, feel-good story-telling.
