Course description

Accountability is the skill we use to own our actions, whether they’re good or bad. Being accountable means the people around us can rely on our honesty. When we’re accountable, we can admit our mistakes and take responsibility for them. We can also learn from our mistakes and improve. Good accountability can help us have stronger relationships and feel better about ourselves.

In this course we'll:

  • Explore accountability skills and why they’re important
  • Learn about our values and how they affect our accountability
  • Develop strategies for setbacks with our accountability
