Last year, 50% of high performers left their roles. According to Gallup's Workplace 2020 Study, only 50% of employees have clear expectations. Many of these performers left because of an accountability challenge - expectations were not being met, low performers were bringing down the team, and leaders were not effectively delegating to bring the best from their team. Some left for a lack of clear expectations.
How do you overcome these hurdles and build a business culture where everyone can perform at a high level?
In Episode 6, we talk Motivating for Accountability as you take your business to the next level.
This season, we’re unpacking the tools you need to effectively connect and collaborate with your team. Ready to build your personal toolbox?
The New Generation Leader Toolkit
In each episode, we discuss the building blocks of New Generation Leaders and high impact relationships. Build your toolkit with us this season.
You also need the practical tools of communication within your team. Join our FREE Remote Work Bootcamp and discover the tools leading organizations are using to maximize their team’s communication.
Our accountability is tied to self-preservation:
No one person can fulfill every role in an organization, so we need to activate the true potential of our entire team to increase performance.

Most leaders deal with this constant tension between Authority and Responsibility. Where they are evenly matched - when a particular Responsibility has commensurate Authority to carry it out - then you feel good. You feel empowered, able to grow, and have the ability to develop your skills.
But when you feel like you have been given more Responsibility than Authority, then over time it leads to deep frustration and bitterness. If you're the leader and you're keeping more Authority than Responsibility, then that's selfish - and it means someone on the other side of you has more Responsibility than Authority. Oftentimes, this situation is rooted in some sort of Self-Preservation from the one hoarding Authority (see the Self-Preservation tool for more).
But if we don't fix it, then we disempower our people.
Disempowerment over time will suffocate your team’s drive and talents, leading to frustration, a decreased capacity to perform, and eventually to burnouts, departures, or explosive situations.

On Leaving a Legacy
On My First Million, Shaan and Sam discussed leaving a legacy. They debated “do I want me ideas to outlast me?” Here was my response to them: leaving behind my ideas means raising up a New Generation Leader who takes my idea to the next level. If it's just my idea that sticks around, eventually it's outdated. But if I invest in enough people, who turn around and invest in other people, my ideas get multiplied and iterated.” Listen to My First Million for more from Shaan and Sam.
Patrick Lencioni asks why leaders abdicate their most important role in his latest book, The Motive, available from your favorite bookseller.
