This quarter is about providing accountability as access to vitality. 

It is about providing accountability as a contribution and as an expression of your values.  Too often, making a promise – saying I will produce [X Result] by [Y Time] occurs as a burden.  Simillarly often, holding people to their promises (or having them make them) can be just as burdensome.  When this happens, it seems easier to avoid making a commitment, or to let people off the hook for theirs. 

It seems that way.  But it’s a trap.  What we don’t see is that, over time, these practices create stress and facilitate burnout. 

This quarter, we practice with accountability as an access to be present, in the moment.  We work with providing it as a gift – as an inroad into – not just improved performance and results – but also more freedom and vitality.  It is about providing accountability grounded in grounded in compassion, rigor and generosity.  It is about holding compassion for people (others and yourself) while rigorously holding them accountable for their promises as an act of generosity and contribution. 

Key practices of the quarter include:

  • Listening: not just understanding the words, but developing the skill to see how the world looks to another and provide an environment where they are able to accept their emotions and focus on commitment.
  • Coaching: Using the conversational practices that have people
    • Clearly see the breakdown in performance,
    • Clearly see the impact of the breakdown,
    • Identify what will work for them to elevate performance,
    • And leave these conversations fully appreciated and empowered.  
  • Personal Awareness and Acceptance – Listening stops when someone “pushes our buttons.” Here we consider “our buttons” are more a function of how we experience others than what others are doing.  Through awareness and acceptance exercises, we work to “disconnect the circuits” that have us react. 

The promise of the quarter is that you will have greater effectiveness in communication.  You and the people around you will be more apt to keep promises and experience greater aliveness and vitality as a result.
