Introducing the fourth element of the Five Behaviors® – Accountability.
When everyone is committed to a clear plan of action, they will be more willing to hold one another accountable.
When individuals know they are going to be held accountable, they are much more likely to deliver on their commitment.
Building on the foundation of trust, where work is a safe place to escalate challenges before they impact deadlines, combined with such clarity of commitment, through productive conflict, there is absolutely no wriggle room to not meet the agreed goals.
This all means employees can experience job fulfilment.
We all spend so much time in work, who doesn’t want to know what they are doing is impactful?
