The Best Teams Hold THEMSELVES Accountable

According to Jack McGuiness writing for the CEO Network, the worst teams have zero accountability, average teams have a boss who holds people accountable, and the best teams hold THEMSELVES accountable. What is accountability anyway, and why is it so elusive for contractors?

    • Thanks, Michael!

  2. ‘Thanks’ Wayne! Accountability is key. Like everything else, it starts with clarity. When things are not going well, businesses have 3 possible responses. The first 2 deny our responsibility…
    1. ‘Who screwed up?’
    2. ‘Who did this to us?’
    3. ‘What did we not do well enough…and how do we fix it?’

    Only #3 involves taking responsibility and ownership of the problem. “We’ll never solve a problem that we don’t first take ownership of.”
