We interviewed the presenter Tim Hebert as to reasons why you should register to: “Accountability: The Choice to be Responsible” and “Vision and Execution.”
Why are you passionate about this topic?
Accountability: The Choice to be Responsible: I believe in the magic of dreams coming true. So many of us have these incredible and exciting visions of our future but often lack that one key ingredient to make them a reality. This workshop provides the essentials for turning your aspirations into transformational possibilities. And nothing ignites my passions more than inspiring someone to simply reach forward a little more.
Vision & Execution - Finding Your Own Kilimanjaro: I believe that accountability is a cornerstone of success in today's modern world. So, do you exhibit a high degree of responsibility and ownership for your work? Too often in business, we hear the phrases “It’s not my job” or "It's not my fault." We may see leaders looking over their shoulders to place blame rather than owning their role in the outcome. We may see others resort to blame-storming, pull out the victim card and make excuses. In short, we may see unaccountable leaders. The more we understand accountability; our ability to become accountable increases. Consequently, we can help others become more accountable.
Why should I attend this session?
Accountability: The Choice to be Responsible: If you want more in your professional or personal life, this program is for you. This workshop teaches you the fundamental concepts of improving your execution of those all-important goals and aspirations. Everyone has something in life or work that they want to accomplish, something that defines them, something that brings them contentment, or something that simply brings a smile to their faces, but unfortunately, many fail to realize these goals. You will leave the workshop knowing how to define "Your Own Kilimanjaro" and build the essential platform to make them a reality.
Vision & Execution - Finding Your Own Kilimanjaro: Ask a number of executives and employees about the chief reason companies experience problems with leadership, culture, and empowerment and many will agree it’s because a lack of accountability prevails through the organization. While leaders feel their employees don’t hold themselves accountable, employees tend to feel there is a lack of responsibility at the executive level. At the end of the day, you can choose to be accountable or not. If you are accountable, you’re focused on the desired results and outcomes, regardless of the circumstance. If you are not, you get distracted, focused instead on unbecoming habits like playing the victim card, blamestorming, and making excuses. As CEO of Atrion, an IT services firm, for more than 25 years, Tim Hebert fostered and instilled a culture of accountability. Every team member not only had a high degree of personal accountability but felt privileged to carry the responsibility to hold their colleagues to the same high standard. During the workshop, you’ll explore how to: a. Develop a modern definition of accountability that drives more effective outcomes b. Cultivate individual and team behaviors that foster a culture of accountability c. Create vocabulary and understanding of these concepts and behaviors within teams and across the organization d. Foster a stronger culture—departmentally or organizationally—of personal accountability and greater transparency
Who will benefit the most from this session?
This workshop is designed for individuals at all levels in their careers. Those that benefit the most are individuals who come to the workshop with real personal or professional goals and aspirations.
What do you do to stay motivated?
Great question. I am motivated by two factors: establishing audacious goals and chasing my purpose. I love setting big hairy audacious goals like climbing Kilimanjaro, writing a book, speaking in public, and then accomplishing that objective. I love the adventure, the potential for failure, and the tremendous learning opportunity. My core purpose is woven into everything I do, and it's this passion to inspire others to become the best version of themselves. When I can inspire someone to take the next step, reach forward a little more, or dream more significantly, I am overwhelmed with enthusiasm and energy. Chasing my purpose in this fashion keeps me continually motivated, energized, and enthusiastic.
Bonus Question: Why are you involved at the Tech Collective?
I believe in the Tech Collective's vision of empowering the next-generation workforce and businesses in the State of Rhode Island.
