Employee Accountability

Giving an employee ownership of a task means that you give them the responsibility to see the task to its completion and make all necessary decisions along the way. This increases the chance of an employee's being committed to the project, and motivates him or her to do a better job.

Accountability usually goes hand-in-hand with ownership. Holding an employee who has the right skills accountable for the successful completion of a task often enhances their performance.

Striking the right balance and choosing the right method to motivate your employees and monitor their performance is the key to building a successful “OWNERSHIP CULTURE” in your organization.

With accountability, you get better results, improved teamwork, and clarity. Without it, you get blame, finger-pointing, missed deadlines and low morale. This program aims to provide trainees with skills to use accountability to improve individual and organizational performance.
