Sense of Accountability Helps Managers Conquer Roadblocks
These subjects can, of course, be covered in more conventional programs, but for teams committed to achieving a difficult goal, the learning is vastly different. When they hit road blocks, for example, most refuse to accept failure. Their sense of accountability impels them to find ways to overcome barriers. The conventional learning would be akin to aspiring mountain climbers discussing in a cozy classroom what they would do on Mt. Everest in a storm. Valuable as this discussion might be, only the real experience develops the real capacity.
