“Why are people so concerned with accountability, and why is it so important?”

It is understandable why people desire greater accountability because it helps some good things happen.  However, those “good things” tend to fall into two significant areas for leaders – personal reasons and organizational reasons.

Why Accountability is So Important

“Why are people so concerned with accountability, and why is it so important?”

It is understandable why people desire greater accountability because it helps some good things happen.  However, those “good things” tend to fall into two significant areas for leaders: personal and organizational.

Personal Reasons

Let’s start by being a bit selfish.  When there is greater accountability among your team members, your life as a leader gets easier.  Who wouldn’t want their work to be a little easier?  Here are three reasons why things will be more straightforward:

  • Reduced blame.
  • Less conflict.  
  • Circumnavigate frustration.

Organizational Reasons

Greater accountability isn’t just lovely to have an attribute in a team.  After all, it is nice if things are more manageable with less frustration.  But can greater accountability make a difference in organizational results?  Here are just three examples that prove the answer is a resounding “yes”:

  • Better customer service. 
  • Higher quality.  
  • Higher productivity. 

While I have framed this for leaders, the reality is that accountability has a 3-D effect – it impacts results for the leader, the team (and individual team members), and the entire organization.  Regardless of which reasons are most important to a person’s perspective, time spent raising your accountability, influencing others to raise theirs, or creating a cultural norm of responsibility is some of the most powerful things you can do to improve organizational results.

A great place to start displaying accountability is with your own professional development.  Check out our innovative Future Self and start your growth today.
