Account on This!

One of the biggest areas that I've seen lacking in leadership is keeping staff accountable.

One of the best ways that you can help people excell is to establish an accountability-based culture focused on producing results.  There are a number of basic things that you can do help this culture along, tremendously and quickly:
  • Establish goals and objectives . . . that align with the organization.
  • Assign each team members specific goals and objectives.
  • Find out from your team what they need in order to succeed in those goals and objectives.
  • Be a part of the team yourself.
and the biggie:
Many leaders actually do focus on those first four bullets . . . then they lose it all at the last one.  If you don't follow up, you're just going through the motions.  That's just a waste of everone's time, including the organization's.
