KEYNOTE | Step Up to Accountability

Friday, May 15th, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 9:45 am

A formula for meaningful work and a purposeful life.

Cy Wakeman

What’s it all about? After a four-year absence from the Samoset stage, nationally-acclaimed author and master of Reality-Based Leadership, Cy Wakeman, returns with an enriching and evolved discussion of accountability – how it should direct your work in human resources and how you can adapt it to your formula of life. It’s a sophisticated and simple message at the same time. Ditch the drama, and you can call yourself and others to responsibility. Then go beyond ego to something better – self-reflection. When you do that, you can turn excuses into results. Join us for a rollicking 75-minutes with Cy, as she explores the research and analysis from her new book, “No Ego.” Leave inspired and determined to deliver accountability to your organization.

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.

  • Discover the four elements of the competency of accountability and the relationship between accountability and engagement.
  • Adopt interviewing and hiring techniques that ensure accountability in new hires and gain skills in coaching current employees for accountability.
  • Become fluent in a new employee value metric that measures accountability, then discover how to “hardwire” it throughout the organization.
