It’s kind of funny when you interview an organization. Almost every employee will report that accountability is an issue in the organization. When asked who has the problem, they will say it is everyone but himself or herself. Everyone has an accountability problem and no one has an accountability problem. Wait … what? How is that possible?
The traditional myth is that accountability is to be applied after someone is found to be doing something wrong. They have done wrong and they must be punished! This is truly a myth and is counter to the purpose of accountability. The proper conversations must start much sooner and in great enough detail to enable success.
In this program, myths and truths of accountability will be discussed and are complemented by tips and tools for leaders to be accountability rock stars. Amazing results occur when employees know what it is that the company does, how it is done, and what their role is in the process.
