From corporate giants to PTA presidents, from humanitarian leaders to heads of state, everyone loves to talk about “accountability.” In our post-Enron world, accountability has become the new watchword. Yet how many of us really understand what it means or how to make it happen? Companies talk about how much they ‘need’ accountability, yet too few take the concrete steps needed to ‘ensure’ it. Business leaders and managers say they want to “hold their people accountable,” yet they have no idea how or where to start.
All too often today the word accountability conjures up negative images of fault, blame, even financial misconduct. “Looks like some heads are gonna roll” is a common response. No wonder accountability gets a bad reputation. Who would want to be held accountable, if it might result in decapitation? But, it doesn’t have to be that way at all:
- There’s a way to hold people accountable that makes them eager to come to work and eager to perform.
- There’s a way to hold people accountable that enhances trust and respect between managers and employees.
- There’s a way to hold people accountable that helps them come together as a team and produce the right results, no matter what.
These ideas are at the heart of what we call The Accountability System—a professional, respectful, and effective method of getting things done and achieving results. Follow this proven system and you are on your way to less stress, more time and a better bottom line.
These are the questions answered in “The Accountability Factor: The Buck ‘Starts’ Here.” The book shows business leaders and managers how to establish accountability, using a professional, respectful and effective method of getting things done. Filled with dozens of stories, practical tips and real-world examples, “The Accountability Factor” outlines a step-by-step process for creating a “Want-To” culture and creating more powerful, productive relationships in the workplace.
