The Leader’s Guide to Accountability
Accountability is tough, but it needs to be done. Are you good at holding team members accountable, or do you struggle with that? A great place to start is in holding yourself accountable. Leaders must live the example of accountability they are expecting from others. If it’s the right thing to do, do it and set the example. Successful leaders prepare themselves for conflict that may arise, yet they also have clarity that, when handled properly, accountability can be in the best interest of the team member. Under-performing people are never happy with themselves, and when they can’t pull the trigger toward change, the best thing you can do for them is to promote them to customer. Open the door to their finding a job they love and enjoy. And when team members follow your direction and make the positive changes you are encouraging, celebrate their success with them. Yes, accountability can be difficult, but it also leads people to careers and lives they can enjoy. This podcast will get you on that road.
