Topics include

  • Avoiding the liverwurst on banana bread feedback sandwich

Join Brad Stokes and Christopher Avery as they discuss The Responsibility Process®.

When Christopher Avery was a management consultant, this was his driving question: Why are so many smart people unhappy at work?

20 years ago, Christopher realized that the most useful skills he was teaching his smart, ambitious, professional clients were coping skills. They needed coping skills because they were stuck in a suffocating culture that systematically disempowered and controlled them. An insidious control cycle kept well-meaning, high-performing leaders and key contributors at all levels from doing their best, taking risks, learning, and operating with freedom, power and choice for the organizations’ best interests.  

His own career trajectory changed forever when Christopher began working with an emerging behavioral science framework — The Responsibility Process®. This powerful framework is the world's first proven how-to approach for understanding, teaching, and taking personal responsibility. It helps us apply our innate leadership ability to face and overcome any challenge. Operating in freedom, power, and choice, we encourage and support those we lead to do likewise.
