Accountability. Many organizations name it one of their top corporate values. And yet no matter how much they talk about accountability, leaders often feel frustrated by what seems like a low level of personal ownership among their employees.
Things don’t get done on time, problems don’t get solved, and issues get ignored rather than proactively addressed before they become problems. Sound familiar?
If it seems like you can’t trust your team to own projects and results, how can you improve accountability? In this episode, Jonathan Raymond joins us to discuss how emotional transparency is the secret to conducting truly effective accountability conversations.
Jonathan Raymond is the author of the book Good Authority: How to Become the Leader Your Team Is Waiting For. He is the CEO at Refound, a leadership training company that teaches people how to have human conversations at work.
