What is Accountability in Business
Accountability is all about describing your accepting responsibility and it can public or private. In this podcast, we will see how to be accountable and how you can move your business forward.
If you accept responsibility for your own actions, you are responsible. Accountability in business is a nomenclature that describes responsibility for acceptance, and can be private or very public. The actions and behaviors of an individual are accountable. Sometimes, though, taking accountability means you made a mistake. Punishment can result, but accountability shows ownership and willingness to admit mistakes.
Building a culture of accountability in the workplace requires clear and aligned around the desired outcomes. You should identify the top three to five key outcomes that the organization must achieve in order to be successful.
Key results should be meaningful, memorable, and measurable, and every employee within the organization should be clearly and consistently informed through a top down approach. Accounting employees take ownership of the psychological property to find solutions that drive key business results, which naturally promotes engagement in the workplace.
Accountability enables employees to not only identify the key gap between current and desired results and take ownership to fill those gaps, but also to develop and implement effective and innovative solutions to existing problems. Be creative to troubleshoot creations as well.
