The Accountability Path 2.0

How surrendering to truth elicits radical responsibility | taught by Josef Shapiro

Course description

Holding People Accountable Takes Guts

The first thing you need to know about the Accountability Path is that it isn't easy.

Accountability is difficult. Both on the giving and the receiving end.

So if you’re looking for a quick-fix, or if you aren’t ready to dig deep, then this course isn’t for you and you can stop reading here.

On the other hand, you may want to create lasting and real change in your business. You may desire a deeply ingrained culture of individual and collective ownership, in which your whole organization is working together toward a common goal.

If that sounds more like what you’re looking for, then read on.

A Five-Step Path

I will lay out for you a five-step path to creating accountability, both for individuals and as a cultural tenet in your organization. The path itself is very straightforward and simple. But simply having the tool isn’t enough. You have to know how to use it if you want to get anywhere.

You have to get underneath, to the underlying reasons why people aren’t responsible, accountable, or engaged to begin with.

So how do you do that? Therein lies the difficulty.

A Different Approach

My methods may seem strange or “out there” to you, but my 17+ years of teaching have shown me time and again that if you really commit to doing this work – you’ll get the results you desire. Guaranteed.

This includes delving deep into abstract concepts like truth, reality, and light/shadow. Do those things sound scary? Good. They are.

And they impact you and your employees/mentees in very concrete ways.

When you strip everything else away, x accountability boils down to abiding with truth. In this course, I’ll show you what that means, and how to apply it when you’re using the Accountability Path tool.

What does accountability mean?

What does the phrase “hold someone accountable” mean to you? Does it have a sense of force or forcefulness to it?

The path I’m giving you takes your employees (or your kids, your peers, even you) to a self-realized sense of ownership and responsibility, without the need for force. The key to this lies in what I call healthy self-interest. In your role as mentor to your people, the Accountability Path tool allows you to help them “wake up” to their own power and impact.
