Accountability – The secret to turbocharging collaboration & cooperation.

Accountability is a fundamental part of assuring a productive workplace. Whether we’re talking about long-term team building or a one-off project – it enables increased capability, commitment, innovation and satisfaction.

Let me use my own experience as an example:

Suzanne Murdock here –  coworking & remote working pioneer, curator of communities,  connector of expertise and cofounder of The Hub Newry, a network of 3 coworking spaces.

While developing #AskTheExpert, a Hub Coworking Outreach – I was drawn into a collaboration with Eve Earley, Empowering Change.

So how do we help each other to reach our full potentials?

What’s Next?

We needed a plan!
