Is Accountability A Big Key
26 Sep 2016
Yes it is!
Let’s define what is accountability?
As defined by Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary as an obligation or willingness to account for one’s actions.
A few months ago I started focusing on accountability. I began to work with an individual and shortly after added work with a small hand picked group of professionals.
I did it as a learning exercise and I could not be happier with the results. As I have spoken with each individual I hear the progress they are making by making small tweaks to their routines. I hear excitement in their voices.
It excites me to hear and see their progress.
I have to be honest when I say the progress is not anything I have done. The accountability comes from within. The one thing I did do was set an expectation there would be follow up, and I have followed through.
These groups could meet in a meeting or happen as a phone call.
The meeting could be having a meal in a restaurant, or lobby of a hotel.
The focus is on moving forward towards the individual goals they each set.
Could it be that big of a deal just asking what did you do to move forward today?
Thanks for spending some of your time today
