Workshop: Developing accountability and commitment virtually


10 February 2022


09:30 to 12:30



One of the key challenges we face when collaborating is influencing others to take accountability and contribute to a collective objective, often without the delegated authority of a line management relationship. Working in geographically dispersed teams means that effective collaboration becomes even more important, and so mastering the skills to develop commitment and enable the group to take accountability is critical to achieve successful outcomes. 

Join our 3-hour interactive virtual workshop to take part in discussions and breakout sessions to explore how we can create clear commitment and develop the conditions where the group can hold itself accountable to deliver great outcomes.

In this session you will:

  • Discuss a simple yet effective model for creating commitment
  • Identify the skills and behaviours necessary to enable peer accountability
  • Learn how you can create agreement on why, what and how we work together remotely, and in a hybrid way, for successful outcomes 

By the end of the session, you will have developed a personal action plan to address your current collaboration challenges and secure commitment and accountability to achieve successful outcomes.

To indicate your interest in attending this virtual workshop, please submit an expression of interest form by 12 midday on Wednesday 2 February. If selected, selected you will receive confirmation of your place by close of business on Friday 4 February.

Please note that places are limited to 16 participants per event.

Please save the date in your diary. As we expect a high level of demand, if you have confirmed attendance, and find that you are unable to attend, please give us as much notice as possible so that we can invite others on our waiting list.
