In today's workplace, 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 of the success or failure of tasks, projects, or initiatives, an environment of trust, alignment, communication, and accountability can be created.
Personal accountability results in less time managing and more time 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.
