How to Harness the Power of Accountability
Harnessing the power of accountability within your business really starts with hyper-clarity of expectations.
So many of us think that we’ve shared with our team what we expect and what we desire from a project or from a task.
However, a lot of the time we haven’t, at least not to the fullest extent. I know I’ve definitely been guilty of that!
Further to this, as founders we often struggle to provide structure. Having checkpoints with the team – weekly huddles, daily check ins, daily checklists, weekly checklists, success check ins etc – gives them access for questions to be answered and gives you control over what’s going on.
That is the next step for making sure that you’re following up on your clear expectations, and giving your team an opportunity to say, hey, I need this, or this isn’t working, or this needs to change.
That’s the opportunity for you to check in and make sure that they’re winning.
However, again, as founders, both of these things are really hard to do. You’re unlikely to be naturally wired for it and, as a result, it will feel sticky and you will resist it.
