- How can you get more accountability from your team?
- Making a Transition to Leadership
Kevin Eikenberry on personal accountability is sorely lacking-and urgently needed in the workplace. When no one is responsible for an outcome, no tough choices are made, no innovative decisions are implemented, and little out-of-the-box thinking is done.
How can you get more accountability from your team?
“YOU”: Organizational accountability starts with you.
As leaders we must go first – we must provide an example of personal accountability for others to follow. When you are more accountable, by extension, you are helping to build it in your organization. Our willingness to accept responsibility has a trickle-down effect: When our team sees us as willing and able to wrap our arms around a new project or initiative, navigate the challenges and inevitable bumps-in-the-road without making excuses for results, it has an impact on them.
Your group are more apt to model personal accountability if they see it in their supervisors on a regular basis.
Think about it: How can the people that report to you embrace a behavior of accountability if you don’t?
And fortunately, accountability is not just a mind-set-it’s a skill-set that everyone can learn. In this insightful presentaion, you’ll learn specific techniques for building more personal accountability – for yourself and your team.
