Lead Others: Creating a Culture of Greater Accountability in a Positive & Principled Way

The key to successfully leading others is all about effectively establishing and executing on key expectations – expectations where not delivering is not an option. This talk provides individuals, managers and senior leaders a proven methodology to follow that provides a principled way of holding others accountable in a positive way by helping to redefine what it means to hold one another accountable.

Learning Objectives:
  • Redefine accountability when it comes to holding others accountable as a positive.
  • Develop and execute on key organizational expectations that are transparent, obtainable and measureable.
  • Implement a system for carrying out expectations and educate employees on that system to help them prepare to accept the new process.

About the Speaker

Tony Bridwell
Partner & Practice Leader
Partners in Leadership

With nearly three decades of executive leadership experience, Tony Bridwell consults, guides and develops leaders on the practical application of Partners In Leadership’s models, tools and methodologies. He is the author of several articles and two books, “The Difference Maker, A Simple Fable About Making A Difference In The Life of Others” (August 2013) and “The Kingmaker, A Leadership Story of Integrity and Purpose” (June 2016).

Tony is a highly recognized thought leader in corporate culture, leadership, development and human resources. He was named 2015 HR Executive of the Year by DallasHR and received the 2015 Strategic Leadership Award from Strategic Excellence HR. He has been a facilitator and featured speaker for organizations within North America, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Italy, Belgium, Egypt, China, Thailand, Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. Aside from presenting and facilitating summits and keynotes for organizations, he has been the featured speaker for multiple conferences and associations, including the CHRO Exchange, DallasHR, The HRSouthwest Conference, ATD San Diego and the California Restaurant Association.

Most recently, Tony served as the chief people officer at Brinker International, the parent company of Chili’s and Maggiano’s restaurants. He began working with Brinker in 2009 as a consultant representing Partners In Leadership. Under his leadership and using the Partners In Leadership approach, Brinker reversed poor engagement, low retention and high costs, ultimately transforming its culture into a powerhouse resource, delivering high stock prices, best-in-industry employee engagement and high customer satisfaction levels. Based on this success and demand for his deeper involvement, Tony joined the staff at Brinker in 2013 and soon transitioned into a key member of the executive leadership in 2014.

Prior to his CPO role at Brinker International, Tony served as a top consultant for Partners In Leadership, working with executive leaders at some of the world’s most acclaimed organizations, including Halliburton, Citibank, Baxter Healthcare, Coca-Cola, Morton’s Steakhouse, Whirlpool, OG&E, the Centers for Disease Control, and many more well-known international organizations.

In addition to his professional commitments, Tony is dedicated to multiple organizations. He is a member of SHRM and serves on the board of directors for two nonprofits: Taylor’s Gift Foundation, which advocates organ donation awareness, and Unlimited Partnerships, a group dedicated to strengthening churches through the development and mentoring of future church leaders.
