Leading and Coaching People to Take Responsibility and Demonstrate Ownership

APLN Houston is proud to host this special Christopher Avery workshop at no charge. We are grateful to Christopher for his continuing support of APLN.


Field research about how personal responsibility works in the mind of leaders (i.e., how we avoid it and how we take it) now make it possible for coaches to understand and teach the mental processes, language, and keys to personal responsibility. Cool huh?

Doing so inspires your charges to demonstrate far greater ownership behavior as individuals and in teams and enterprises. You add more value as your team or clients take ownership; practice self-leadership; and learn, correct, and improve more easily, directly, and quickly.

This is a highly interactive and hands-on workshop. You will work directly with the Responsibility Process and the Keys to Responsibility practicing processes and exercises that Christopher and his Leadership Gift students apply with their teams and clients.

Learning Outcomes:

Come acquire the basic tools and practices for coaching success with personal responsibility. You will:

  • Leave with tools, activities and exercises you can use on an ongoing basis to continually improve your ability to take and teach ownership behavior
  • Understand and explain the connection between ownership behavior and success in any pursuit
  • Understand and explain the essential role of ownership behavior (i.e., personal responsibility) in agile
  • Understand and explain why and how people avoid ownership, and why and how people take it
  • Understand why an agile coach would want to demonstrate, inspire, and teach ownership behavior
  • Understand, try on, and validate your mind’s internal Responsibility Process
  • Understand and practice the 3 Keys to Responsibility for unlocking and mastering the Responsibility Process
  • Evaluate your return on investment as a coach to adopt a personal Responsibility Practice for mastering responsibility
  • Evaluate and choose the basic tools to support your success practicing and teaching ownership behavior
  • Learn the A, B, C’s of teaching responsibility to anyone — what is required, and where the pitfalls are.
  • and maybe…Understand why giving advice seldom works (because it shifts the locus of ownership from advice-receiver to advice-giver)
