Leadership accountability

Improve the accountability of your senior leaders and critical teams to bridge the gap between expectation and current performance.

According to our Global Leadership Accountability study, 72% of organizations agree that leadership accountability is a critical business issue, yet only 37% are satisfied with the level of accountability in their own leaders.

Despite considerable ongoing investment by companies in leadership development, there’s a demonstrable accountability gap between what is expected of leaders and how they are currently performing.

Our Leadership Accountability practice is based on ideas from The Leadership Contract by Dr. Vince Molinaro, who defines strong and accountable leaders as those who are committed to:

  • getting important work done.
  • moving things forward in their organizations.
  • taking personal ownership for their words, actions, and outcomes.
Our global leadership team has begun learning how to put The Leadership Contract into action, and we are all seeing the results.

Ricardo Quintero, President, Movado Group Inc.
The Leadership Contract program helps you understand that choosing to lead is both a decision and a commitment. We have taken all of our leaders through the program and use it as a cornerstone for our new leader development program.

Vince Molinaro has dedicated his life to promoting both personal and organizational accountability in leadership cultures around the world. He experienced a defining moment early in his career when he saw a respected colleague and mentor succumb to a cancer she believed was the byproduct of a stressful, toxic work environment. As a result, Vince vowed to teach business leaders how to build successful organizations by increasing the accountability of their leaders.

The author of The Leadership Contract (Wiley) – a New York Times and USA Today bestseller now in its second edition – Vince has spent more than 20 years as an adviser to boards and senior executives looking to improve leadership in their organizations.

Vince knows that leadership accountability is the key ingredient in building a strong, vibrant organizational culture. As a successful senior executive in one of the world’s top leadership development firms, Vince has made it his calling to confront weak and lame leadership. He shows leaders at all levels how to step up and fulfill their obligations and responsibilities as real leaders.

What sets Vince apart is that he’s no ivory-tower academic. As a forceful keynote speaker at conferences and corporate retreats, he translates first-hand experiences from the leadership trenches into practical advice on how leaders can confront and overcome their challenges and build strong leadership cultures.
