By: Ron Bower
Need I say more? Well, maybe, just a little.
- Set clear expectations for accountability
Train all your managers how to create an accountable culture
- Provide meaningful feedback on accountability
- Coach bad behaviors out
- Even fire those that choose not to be accountable
Go ahead. Enjoy the long and windy uphill road!
