“Accountability breeds response-ability.” Stephen R. Covey
I find it interesting that when we hear the word “accountability”, we tend to cringe. What is it about this word Ithat elicits such a response? If I say, “Who are you accountable to?” to an executive, more often than not I get a strange look and long pause. Many seem to want to answer, “No one.” However, that is not the politically correct answer. The truth is, we are all accountable. This accountability only increases as a leader “moves up the ladder”.
