486 | The Risks and Rewards of Accountability

It’s time to weigh out the Risks and Rewards of Accountability.

Have you ever felt a slight hesitation before confronting a team member, coworker, or even a family member on a goal that they need to have accountability on? I think we all have. 

What’s that tinge of uncertainty or anxiety pointing us to? It’s probably something from our Root System that’s afraid of a negative outcome, the possibility of conflict, or something worse.

And while we’ve all seen it abused, when we truly understand what real accountability is, it can become something that’s helpful, healthy, and even lifegiving. It’s necessary for growth!

On today’s podcast, I want to take a deep dive into the Risks and Rewards of holding others accountable. Now, let me clarify what I mean by “holding others accountable”. 

This is so important to understand: accountability means lovingly helping others to succeed.

It’s about finding out what’s actually going on in a situation, instead of just making assumptions and shooting from the hip. Healthy accountability enables leaders to bring solid solutions, giving their team members the tools that they need to win.

That’s it. Not as heavy-handed as you were thinking, right? That’s because we’ve all got a story, somewhere in our experience, when someone held us accountable, but their intentions were… well, not so loving or helpful.

But, if you really get this concept, then it could be a game changer in your business as well as your personal life. Lovingly helping others to succeed is one of the greatest keys to success a leader can learn.

I hope you enjoy this episode!
