Leaders and Managers
If you manage people, lead a team, or hold a position that requires you to achieve results through others, an accountability system can help and this blog is for you! Blog content covers topics associated with accountability including trust, performance management, employee engagement, behavior styles, productivity, goals, and getting results.
Accountability Guidance, Knowledge, and Skills
Most leaders and managers are intelligent, empathetic, and well-intentioned individuals who want to do a good job for their company, family, and themselves. However, strengths overextended can become weaknesses. Those same leaders and managers may also have a tendency to:
- Put off dealing with problem behaviors
- Struggle to hold people accountable
- Sacrifice results for popularity
- Lack a sense of urgency – as perceived by others
- Communicate vague or unclear expectations
The Business of Accountability system can provide you with the knowledge, tools, and processes for improving performance, increasing productivity, and getting results through others.
Accountability in the workplace is the foundation for executing strategy, managing performance, and measuring results.
People, especially exemplary performers, thrive in an environment where expectations are high and people are held accountable for results. So, it makes sense to implement a sustainable workplace accountability system and create a high performance environment. Organizations benefit from increased productivity, decreased turnover, and enhanced employee engagement when they develop a culture of accountability that benefits both employees and managers.
Improve accountability and execute your business strategy.
The Business of Accountability provides leaders and managers with a Workplace Accountability System for executing business strategy. Companies, leadership, and employees benefit from implementing a sustainable system for:
- Aligning goals and objectives
- Setting quality standards
- Communicating clear expectations
- Removing obstacles that impede success
- Producing high quality, high impact work products
- Developing high performance teams
What is accountability?
Accountability and responsibility are often used synonymously, but I think of it like this. We have many responsibilities, but typically we are “held to account” for a few that have consequences attached. Consequences can be either positive (rewards) or negative (punishments).
n. The state of being accountable or answerable; responsibility for the fulfillment of obligations; liability to account for conduct, the fact or condition of being accountable.
Accountability promotes trust, transparency, and innovation.
