This course will guide leaders through an accountability framework that is restorative to personal and professional relationships. This holistic process deepens self-awareness with a more critical lens. The activities, reflections, and teachings challenge the cultural norm that accountability is too "risky" or "scary" a conversation to have.

Restorative accountability is a human-centered pathway that strengthens our capacities to heal through challenges in relationships rather than defaulting to shame, blame, or fleeing. With a dynamic course that includes wellness exercises and tools to cultivate communication skills, you'll build on self-awareness and compassion for yourself and others.

"What if we used 'accountability' for what it actually is?
A pathway to learn more about each other's edges and cultivate healthier relationships."

Reshape your understanding of accountability and embody restorative strategies by engaging with the workbook and this self-paced course. Fully integrate your learning experience with the workbook, Accountability As Restoration: From Healing a Punitive System to Co-Designing Restorative Dialogues, published in 2023 and created by nature-based leadership coach, Raynelle Rino, CPC.

For Leaders Seeking True Accountability

Whether you are a community-based leader, activist, manager or supervisor in the public and private sector, the topic of accountability continues to be the most elusive part of nurturing healthy relationships. It is the one critical aspect of relationships that can cause the derailment of a project, sever ties in relationships, or even create more harm than good. So how do we "do accountability differently"?

Leaders will be taken through a journey that

  • unpacks the term 'accountability' and its misuse
  • approaches a framework that is socially conscious and challenges the punitive norms of accountability
  • considers the conditions needed to successfully implement this framework into different relationships & circumstances
  • guides you through the creation of a new design of restorative dialogues so you can apply restorative strategies immediately

Participation is self-paced with opportunities to engage in community dialogues through message boards and video tutorials. Participants will be notified when opportunities to attend live community sessions with your coach, Raynelle.
