It’s common among work groups to decry the lack of accountability in the workplace. In response, leaders and organisations focus on improving accountability, but often they do so in ways that are completely counter-productive and damaging. Developing accountability is more complex and nuanced than you may initially think, so it’s worthwhile spending some time of getting it right.

January is an interesting month for work in Australia. Things tend to be a little quieter on the work front with things yet to pick up after the holiday period, while social lives can be quite busy as people capitalise on the warm summer nights and greater free time. In your organisation, you likely planned out 2017 back in the final quarter of 2016, and individually there is a good chance that you have set New Year’s Resolutions or at least spent some time pondering and refocussing on your long-term goals and direction. January is thus the ideal time to evaluate your thinking and strike while the proverbial iron is hot. There are a number of things you can do in your team to make sure that you capitalise on the opportunity to reboot in January and set yourself up well for the year.

Organisations and leaders accept that a key competitive advantage available to any organisation lies in the skills and capabilities of its employees. It follows that leaders and organisations recognise the importance of investing in training and development initiatives. Unfortunately, this is rarely done well. Indeed, some research has suggested that 80% of training expenditure is wasted[1]. That’s particularly concerning in times of tight budgets and attention on ROI.

Perseverance and resilience are key to long-term success and are increasingly sought after in employees. In contrast, failure is a dirty word. It makes us uncomfortable and we try to hide our own failures from others fearing it is a sign of inadequacy.

We know that change and innovation are important. If you don’t innovate, you will be left behind. But how should you innovate?

I would most definitely recommend the scavenger hunt, (and I have been) and I'd give it a score of 5. It was well run and well organised. The hunt itself was difficult enough that there was a little bit of a challenge but not so hard that we were all at a loss, and having Aileen there in case we got too stuck was great. My only disappointment was that it was too short! All the guests were raving about how great it was and I was even told by a few that it was the best hens they've ever been to.

Hopefully, that answers your questions well enough. I am so grateful for Aileen and all her help and hardwork. Trying to organise a hens from the other side of the country was going to be difficult enough but Aileen just made it so easy. It was just an amazing day, we had so much fun and I couldn't have asked for it to be better. You're more than welcome to use my response as testimonial. I couldn't rate the experience high enough!
