256 Teams Leadership & The Responsibility Process – Avery

Leadership & Responsibility – Team Management Evolves

Dr. Christopher Avery joins us at CBJ to discuss Leadership and the Responsibility Process. When something goes wrong, large or small (for example, lost keys or a lost retirement account), The Responsibility Process kicks in. The mind works hard to Lay Blame as a reason for the problem.

Working Beyond Blame

If you accept blame as a sufficient reason, then you will act on that blame. If you don’t accept it, then your mind offers you an excuse (Justify) – and so on. Thus, taking personal responsibility is a step-wise process of refusing to act on a series of irresponsible thoughts that your mind offers up.

Note Well

Responsibility/irresponsibility does not delineate a character trait/flaw. It’s a mental process operating identically in everyone. The process can be observed, learned, taught, studied, developed, modeled, and practiced. Any willing individual, team, or organization can practice responsibility at ever higher levels. The Responsibility Process is most useful when self-applied. It backfires when used to Lay Blame on others.

Dr. Avery Details 

“The Responsibility Process guy”, founded The Leadership Gift™ Program to make world-class personal leadership development accessible to individuals worldwide. His books include The Responsibility Process and Teamwork Is An Individual Skill.

    Dr. Parker,

    I have been enjoying your podcasts for over a year, and truly appreciate your work. The recent K2 interview was very enlightening as was the episode with Dr. Jaffe. Phenomenal content!

    I want to point out that episode 256 (listed as an interview with Avery regarding leadership) plays a different episode.

    Thanks for all of your hard work examining health, brain function and healing from a functional, integrative and holistic perspective. Keep it coming!

      Thanks for your kind remarks, Mark, – will check that out!

    • Dr Charles Parker on 10/11/2018 at 3:50 AM

      Yes, that’s a result of my early morning publishing – the first time so glaring, hope it’s the last! Incidentally, will likely create a specific page for leadership when I can catch a minute so make sure you sign up for updates as it appears that will work for you. Again, thanks!
