Keynote speaker Brad Starr of Partners in Leadership, Inc. will lead a thought provoking discussion focused on achieving results critical to a company’s future through developing a culture of accountability in the workplace. Starr’s discussion will concentrate on the book Journey to the Emerald City: Achieve a Competitive edge by Creating a Culture of Accountability by Roger Connors and Tom Smith. Each attendee will receive a free copy of the publication. Based on The Oz Principle® Accountability Training,® the discussion will provide managers, supervisors, and human resource professionals a new mindset that focuses on future action rather than on placing “blame” and “excuse-making.”
