Accountability is absolutely vital to our organisation’s success. But it’s getting a bad wrap: In a survey by Anne Loehr…
- 93% employees don’t understand what their organisations are trying to achieve
- 80% of people see accountability as punishing
With that kind of publicity “Accountability” it’s losing “the effectiveness battle”.
But we all know that feeling of ownership for the task, role, region or product. If we are responsible for a task it makes us keen to deliver the best results as we know that only we are accountable for our success. So accountability works when done well.
Let’s reframe the picture and make accountability everyone’s business.
