Action and Accountability Presented by Dorrier Underwood
Mon Jan 11 2016 9:00 am — 5:00 pm

Nancy Dorrier

When: Monday January 11 & Tuesday January 12 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Action and Accountability is Dorrier Underwood’s acclaimed two-day workshop on how to move strategic conversations into swift, committed action. You’ll learn reliable practices for elevating productivity, job satisfaction, and performance. Discover the implicit connections between wellbeing, productivity, and effectiveness.

Leaders use Action and Accountability to build high performance teams known for straight talk, collaboration and results. In an environment of clarity, integrity and affinity, misunderstandings, resentments, vague requests and the incomplete delivery of promises die out.

Power without force is at the heart of the program. We begin by giving you tools to manage your own accountability, then reveal new ways to interact with colleagues, direct reports, and clients.

Participants learn how to:

  •  Save time through a more rigorous use of language.
  •  Make powerful requests and elicit reliable promises from clients and colleagues.
  •  Hold each other to account with no loss of affinity.
  •  Use mistakes to enhance performance, rather than covering them up.

In the process, team members experience accomplishment and fulfillment. Executives are inspired to elicit bigger promises and make more powerful requests. Things that have been stuck start to move. Things moving slowly gain velocity. Projects finish on time or ahead of schedule.

Lecture with the Monks | Opening the Heart: Arousing the Mind of Universal Kindness
Tue May 03 2016 7:00 pm — 8:30 pm
Lecture with the Monks | Opening the Heart: Arousing the Mind of Universal Kindness @ The Crow Collection of Asian Art

The eighth century Indian master Shantideva said, “The mind of universal kindness is like the magical elixir that turns base metals into gold. It transforms an ordinary person into one on the path of growth and happiness.” Love and kindness are mental archetypes that all beings possess. The more we strengthen them, the more beneficial we become to others and ourselves. Buddhism presents numerous contemplative techniques for intensifying and enhancing these archetypes, until they achieve full maturity and universality.
