Building Accountability

Accountability is a hot topic these days in both political circles and around the boardroom table. After a couple of decades of letting things go, it seems like everybody is now interested in ways to hold both their leaders and their followers, to a higher degree of scrutiny. In the business world this has come about because or some very high profile cases of executive mismanagement, extravagance and even fraud. Prodded by an outraged public, regulators have moved to enact much stricter reporting and ethical requirements on corporate executives.



Employee Recognition Programs
Employee recognition programs are the acknowledgement that a staff member of a business or organization is making a positive contribution to the organizationís on-going success.


Communication Style and Gender
The most effective communicators, male and female, are masters at balancing power and empathy signals, so that they come across as both confident and caring.


Non-Solicitation/Competition Clauses
Not only are those clauses increasingly unenforceable; they can also increase your firmís liability when you later seek to remove the affected employees from your workforce.
