We often hear the phrase “we must hold people accountable” - but this often means we haven’t created the right environment for people to take ownership. Caring for people and accountability to each other are inextricably linked. This live online class will show you how to foster an environment that inspires employees to take ownership, to lean in, to achieve more and to love work. Join us: https://bit.ly/3dfLQrw

I agree that it's critical to get individuals to lean into their empowerment. But often see the trap of leaders "giving accountability" to individuals, but failing to support them and provide the tools necessary to exercise their accountability - whether that's trust, training, supportive process, rewards, or a safety net. Accountability without the means to be accountable is a recipe for failure.

This is the kind of person you want to report to. Accountability is essential always but it's a learning and maturity tool when you don't have to deal with a punitive boss or culture.
