“Accountability is a statement of personal promise, both to yourself and to the people around you, to deliver specific defined results.” Brian Dive, The Accountable Leader
As you consider your current projects and goals – what does accountability mean? Who is going to do what? When? And How?
Accountability can take many forms in today’s work space but still comes back to the basics – who is going to do what, when, and where.
There are many different accountability frameworks and structures. From automatic tracers which give you reminders and prizes for achieving what you have set out for, to peer groups (see last week’s Mastermind post) which hold you accountable for what you said you would do.
As virtual teams, accountability is important and may include portals and dashboards where people can keep each other updated and “in the loop”.
Accountability is part of a high-performance landscape – organizations and teams which are great at getting results usually have a clear sense of what kind of accountability is going to work best.
Take a look at this article for more on accountability - 12 Keys to a More Effective Accountability Strategy.
Wishing you the best,
