Flipping the Script on Accountability

The Corporate Purpose Podcast

05-04-2022 • 33分

Michael Lennington and Brian Moran are the best-selling authors of The 12-week Year: Get More Done in 12 Weeks than Others Do in 12 Months and experts in productivity and culture-building. They recently published the new book, Uncommon Accountability: A Radical New Approach to Greater Success and Fulfillment, which explores the shift away from the control view of accountability to an accountability as choice model.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Why choice is the crux of accountability,
  • How to create an ownership mindset instead of a control mindset,
  • Why holding people accountable usually leads to failure,
  • What it means to hold people capable,
  • The difference between consequences and accountability,
  • The role purpose and mission play in building an accountability mindset, and
  • Why this model for accountability is necessary in remote and hybrid work cultures.
