In today's work place, the concept of accountability has taken center stage as a vital business concern. Yet, it is all too often confused with punishment, fault-finding, blame, and guilt. If employees take ownership for the success or failure of tasks, projects or initiatives, then an environment of trust, alignment, communication and accountability can be created.
Personal accountability results in less time spent managing and more time spent coaching, mentoring and leading.
Employees who demonstrate responsibility, self-empowerment and accountability are an organization's competitive advantage and the ones you want to develop as your organization's future leaders.
