Bend YP Expert Lab: The Language of Leadership: Holding Others Accountable From Any Seat in the Organization

March 7 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Holding Others Accountable From Any Seat in the Organization
Presented by Erik Berglund, CEO and Founder at Language of Leadership.
What do you do when someone (including your peers or boss) doesn’t do the thing, or does it late, or does it poorly? What do you say? How do you say it? What do you listen for? In this seminar, you’ll learn what to say and how to say it every time someone isn’t accountable.

You’ll leave with real skill — having practiced holding someone else accountable a few times will arm you with the confidence and skill to go apply this in the workplace.

You’ll learn how to ‘start’ any conversation — whether it’s holding someone accountable, setting expectations, or negotiating a pay raise, you’ll learn how to get the other person to willfully participate in any conversation.

Most importantly — you’ll learn that the ‘scary’ parts of leadership aren’t scary. We’ll demystify the undercurrents of accountability and conflict, arming you with the tools you need to navigate any conversation in the workplace for years to come.

Whether you’re seeking to “lead from the middle” or have an existing team and want a proven new skill set — this training is designed to help current leaders and individual contributors both learn how to influence and hold others accountable for where they are in their career path.


We’ll cover how to:
Set crystal clear expectations and communicate flawlessly with your team.
Help to foster an accountability culture with your team.
Handle conflict with ease, without creating trust issues among your team members.
Use specific language to bring people together and build alignment – and make progress without (or with minimal) friction.
Learn how to influence accountability in those around you.
All are welcome to attend!
Expert Labs are ninety-minute conversations with local industry leaders. You’ll gain valuable insights from executives and leaders on how they were able to enrich their careers, expand their opportunities, or as they simply share their industry knowledge. Each session is convened with a Q&A session.

Doors open at 3:00 PM | Discussion from 3:30 – 5:00 PM
