The session started with a workshop from Hernani Alves, author of the Amazon best-selling book Balanced Accountability – 3 Leadership Secrets to Win Hearts and Maximize Performance.
Mr. Alves challenged the leaders to understand that accountability is a learned habit that is rarely discussed and even more rarely never taught. Using examples from his experience as the CEO of a large retail store as well as his personal life, the concept of accountability as an expression of love was developed.
Accountability = Love is a theme that can be carried into all parts of the organization.
- Love for the well being of the organization – company accountability
- Love for the well being and success of the employee – personal accountability
- Love for the success of the customer – when is the last time you thought about that!
- Tough love for individuals when things are not going well
I highly recommend that you contact Hernani Alves (www.balancediq.com) to learn more about his workshops and how balanced accountability can be an advantage in your business.
After being cooped up in our offices, homes, and multiple Zoom sessions, the Escape participants were set into teams and charged to decode the clues, decipher the geography and solve the riddle to discover the treasure. After scouring the grounds of the winery to find all
of the clues and solve all of the puzzles the teams discovered that Their Journey Together as Business Owner Peers was The Treasure.
After the prizes were distributed (everyone is a winner), the group enjoyed a great lunch and some members stayed to enjoy a special wine tasting while others took advantage of the day for a round of golf.
