Accountability is a huge challenge in business today. The Workplace Accountability Study recently revealed that 82% of respondents have no ability to hold others accountable, but 91% of people rank accountability as one of the top development needs they’d like to see at their organization. So simply put, we all want accountability, but we feel we don’t have the ability to get it.
At Fierce, we’ve worked with thousands of leaders and organizations over the years to help them create the business culture they want and more importantly, need, to get results. We’ve heard leaders describe accountability as culpability, responsibility, wrong doing, and “blame.” In other words, I need to know who to blame if this all goes wrong.
And it is true – the majority of people attach some level of fault and blame to the word accountability.
Accountability is something that you must choose every day. It is a private, non-negotiable choice that you make on how to live your life. Are you the kind of leader who encourages accountability? Or do you play into others’ excuses?
