Event description


[Internal and external trainers and coaches, see train-the-trainer certification info below]

Do People Around You Waste Valuable Time And Energy NOT Taking Ownership For Obvious and Important Problems?

  • You strive to be efficient but lose a lot of time to resistance and defensiveness around you

  • You want to improve productivity but keep rehashing old issues

  • You try to introduce change but banging your head on the wall hurts

Confidently Lead and Coach people to Take Responsibility and Demonstrate Ownership with The Responsibility Process

The Responsibility Process

Applied research over the last twenty-five years on the front lines of leadership about how personal responsibility works in the mind (how we avoid it and take it) now makes it possible for coaches and leaders to understand and apply the mental processes and language of personal Responsibility.

Working with The Responsibility Process will lead you to insights and a-ha’s about your behavior that may cause others to avoid Responsibility and Ownership. These same insights and a-ha’s will show you what you can change so that others step up to Responsibility and Ownership.

Inspire those around you to demonstrate far greater ownership behavior as individuals, and in teams and enterprises. You will add more value as your team or clients take ownership; practice self-leadership; and learn, correct, and improve more easily, directly, and quickly.

Each participant will receive:

  • Your own copy of Christopher’s new book: The Responsibility Process – Unlocking Your Natural Ability to Live and Lead with Power – a $20 (USD) valueThe Responsibility Process -  3d-book300x348

  • A certificate of completion you can use to claim professional development or continuing education credits from your association.

  • Free admission to a follow-up webinar with Christopher one to two months following the workshop

  • $100 coupon toward your first year’s membership in The Leadership Gift Program

Judith Mills

"Over the last year 350 people in 9 countries have become way more productive than we ever imagined they could be. Our agile processes are successful primarily because everyone takes ownership by understanding and practicing The Responsibility Process. Today we produce twice the software with half the headcount."
—Judith Mills, Vice President Product Eng. Ops., CDC Software, Atlanta, Georgia

Christoph Steindl

"Once you see how much time and effort you and your team members can waste on the islands of "lay blame", "justify", "shame", and "obligation", you will want to learn this stuff."
-Christoph Steindl, CEO, Catalysts.cc, Linz, Austria


  • Leave this workshop ready to apply what you learn about yourself and others

  • Understand how your mind uses The Responsibility Process to keep you stuck or propel you forward

  • Improve how you demonstrate, lead, and coach ownership behavior with the tools and activities you will learn

  • Understand the difference between accountability and responsibility and the mental processes they invoke in you and those you lead

  • Learn how to invite and allow others to try on what you will learn, what is required and where the pitfalls lie

  • Realize why giving advice may be the weakest tool you have available—and what you can do that’s more effective

  • Evaluate and choose the basic tools to support your success in practicing and teaching ownership behavior

  • Address your important topics and interests that intersect with this content

Hands on

Work directly with The Responsibility Process® and The Keys to Responsibility to practice leadership and coaching tools that Christopher and his students in The Leadership Gift Program apply with their teams and clients.

"This workshop is one of the most valuable training events I have attended in my professional career."
—Chris Farrell, Senior Consultant, Quick Solutions, Columbus, OH

"This was an excellent and informative training. Rather than focus on a specific technique to train it simply provides insight into a thought process that everyone goes through. Being aware of that process can allow you to move toward responsibility and ownership much faster."
