The Responsibility Process

Leading and Coaching Workshop

A powerful day of learning with Christopher Avery


Eye-opening and absolutely essential for developing executive presence, emotional intelligence, and presence of mind.

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-processApplied 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.

Confidently 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.

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.

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.
Teams that attend together will leave with a new shared language for highly effective leadership, teamwork, change, and performance.

This workshop will help you understand why you and people around you respond to problems the way they do. It will make it easier for you to challenge your own reactions and grow on a personal level. It will also make it easier for you to accept the way people around you respond. This model helps you to talk about your reactions and gives you an easy frame of reference that you can use to improve yourself and attain a higher level of personal freedom. It has become a key element of my path towards personal freedom and growth.
