Accountability and Effective

Communication in the Workplace

Accountability is often viewed as a negative concept. When it is viewed as a positive team characteristic which, not only the employees/teachers/supervises own but also the managers/administrators/supervisors endorse, the team works in a cohesive manner to meet the goals of the organization. When communication is effective between the boss and the employee, a relationship of psychological safety and trust is built. The concept of accountability will be explored from a positive perspective. Effective communication will be examined through actual experiences which participants will be asked to share.
