Join Todd Dewett for an in-depth discussion in this video Achieving accountability, part of Managing for Results.
- Great teams know the truth about goals.…The very best well-crafted goals don't work…at all without great accountability.…Goals are targets to be achieved.…Accountability is about driving people to feel…responsibility and duty, it's a feeling that one must…perform well because it's expected.…Accountability is knowing that when you perform well,…you'll receive the accolades you deserve,…and when you don't perform well, you'll receive…the more difficult feedback that you need.…
The bottom line is simple, teams with high accountability…meet or exceed their goals more consistently…and embrace improvement efforts more readily.…So to get results, how do you build accountability?…It all starts with you, in many ways I feel like…you have to earn the right to hold others accountable.…Think of it this way, in the eyes of others, it won't…make sense for you to be holding others accountable…if you're not personally performing well…and holding yourself accountable.…
So if you have an achievement,…be gracious when they say congratulations.…
