Supportive Accountability Leadership™ Training

Build Your Team’s Leadership and Performance Management Muscles

Effective performance improvement requires an integrative approach that balances supportive leadership and accountability. Unfortunately, balancing these two critical elements is often a struggle.

That’s where Supportive Accountability Leadership™ comes in.

Engage Employees and Improve Performance

Supportive Accountability Leadership™ is a simple but powerful framework that equips your leaders to create an engaging work environment, promote accountability, and boost performance. At the core of the model is supportive accountability, a blend of supportive leadership and strong accountability that sparks employee performance.

"(Sylvia) is very truly passionate about performance management, which I think makes all the difference. Not just because it comes across and it makes you more inspired to learn, but because when someone’s passionate about something, they put in that extra effort."
Dane Crockford, Ph.D., Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Incoming Manager, Family Health Centers of San Diego

Through my proprietary Supportive Accountability Leadership™ Training Program, Melena Consulting Group can bring the model to your organization. This is a predesigned modular program that can be delivered in 2-day, 1-day and 1/2-day in-person training sessions.

The Four Leadership Styles of Supportive Accountability™

The Model identifies four leadership styles based on the amount of support and accountability leaders demonstrate.

Seven Elements of Effective Performance Management

The Supportive Accountability Leadership Model is anchored in the seven elements of effective performance management — expectations, monitoring, feedback, support, recognition, accountability, and documentation. These elements engage employees, promote accountability, and boost performance. 

The Supervisor-Employee Relationship

The supervisor-employee relationship is the foundation of Supportive Accountability Leadership™. To inspire employees and achieve success, leaders must first and foremost build healthy and lasting working relationships with the people they lead. The Supportive Accountability Leadership shows them how.

"I love it! As a new supervisor coming into this role, I feel I’m absorbing as much as I can. It's definitely provided a different perspective for… when dealing with staff with different personalities."
Patricia Perez
Program Supervisor, San Ysidro Health

The Model Unveiled

After decades of helping leaders that struggled with performance management, I created the Supportive Accountability Leadership™ Model and unveiled it with the publication of my leadership book, Supportive Accountability: How to Inspire People and Improve Performance.
