Develop Positive Accountability in your Team
Peak Performance Leadership Podcast
Accountability was once a concept associated primarily with punishment and failure. However, today it has become much more than that—it’s seen as an essential part of any successful business. When practiced correctly, accountability has the power to create well-motivated teams who are actively engaged in their work and committed to success. It encourages individuals to take responsibility for their actions and practice good communication and collaboration skills. By creating an environment where everyone is held equally accountable, organizations can foster a culture of mutual respect and trust that encourages employees to thrive.
In fact, research suggests that when organisations get accountability
• 75% of team members see solving problems as ‘someone else’s
• 65% don’t see due dates as real commitments,
• 80% don’t seek and offer feedback often,
• 82% try but fail to hold others accountable (or avoid it altogether),
• 85% are unsure what the organisation is trying to achieve.
