Pyramid of Responsibility

Leadership, communication and culture are three important factors in determining the success or failure of any organization.  Responsibility Focused Leadership is designed to address and enhance all three. 

Responsibility-Centered Leadership provides training for business leaders to help them transform their organization into more responsibility-centered workplace. RCL helps the organization recognize six components that must be in place to help employees perform at their own highest potential and take responsibility for their reactions, performance and growth.

Pyramid of Responsibility


Clear Expectations

Through a process of building your company’s “Foundations”, expectations are clearly defined and become a part of ongoing conversations with employees.

Emotional Control

Give ‘em Five is used to teach all leaders how to use the five themes of a guided conversation to give them the skills for the challenging moments.


Leaders will learn how to recognize the three levels of compliance and how to consistently work through each level during challenging moments.

Benefit for Change

Leaders will learn to frame every conversation regarding performance improvement by relating it directly to the benefit of the employee.

Confident Decisions

Leaders learn how to maintain and strengthen their leadership role when sharing decisions with employees.


Leaders will learn how to build an organization where responsibility shifts back to the employee and they play the major role in solving the problem they created.
