And then what?
Something happened –
You didn’t get the promotion.
Your team didn’t hit the project deadline.
Your company missed the goal this quarter.
?You took the first step, which is the hardest step for the majority of leaders – personal accountability.
This is huge, yet it is not the end of the story.
Because accountability about what happened, believe it or not, is part of the job as a leader.
What you do next is what will truly separate you from the pack.
There are three other key aspects to the accountability process you must apply to maximize its power…
1️⃣ – It starts with you the leader holding yourself accountable to the event.
2️⃣ – Take the next appropriate action to prevent what happened from happening again.
3️⃣- Hold your people accountable to their part in an event as well as their role in the action steps you developed.
These three aspects of accountability are powerful.
As a leader you must take ownership for everything you can about an event, decide how to move forward, and hold your people to the standard.
This process of accountability is the challenge and the choice that separates great leaders from the rest.
