Do It On Thursday™    

Experiment with:
Holding Yourself Accountable

Accountability. There's usually not enough of it in any organization. Lack of accountability often leads to finger pointing, missed deadlines, inertia, empty promises, damaging relationships with clients and colleagues and, ultimately, losing business.

TOMORROW:

At least once tomorrow use an "I" statement when accepting responsibility for a project or a task that is on your plate and identify as clearly as you can what the task is. After completing it, tell one person how well you think you did and own one thing that you think you could have done better.

 






Special Encore Presentation:
Who Dropped The Ball? Accountability and Systems Intelligence

December 21, 2011

"Joe was taking care of that." "Mary dropped the ball in the meeting.” "I thought the project manager was giving the client a call.” Do any of these phrases sound familiar? Accountability. There’s usually not enough of it in any organization. And it’s one leadership tool that desperately needs to be in the box. As leaders when we hold ourselves and others responsible for things within our control it supports structure and operating norms, builds trust, and helps teams track and measure progress. Lack of accountability often leads to finger pointing, missed deadlines, inertia, empty promises, damaging relationships with clients and colleagues and, ultimately, losing business. On this episode of LEI host Esther Orioli and featured guest Marita Fridjhon, CEO of CRR Global, Inc., discuss making and holding people responsible in the workplace, using Systems Intelligence to create form out of chaos, and how to empower, not micromanage, with accountability.
