As organizations face increasing pressure to perform, the word “accountability” gets mentioned more and more. But as much as we would like to “hold others accountable,” the reality is that accountability is an internal process. The best we can do to is deliver on our own obligations and encourage others to do the same.
Leading Change/Change Has Changed
As a leader, managing change is nothing new. So, why does it feel so much harder now? Because change has changed. It’s no longer an event to prepare for, but a constant reality to cope with. While you can’t stop the tsunami of change, as a leader, you have more power than you think to create calm within the storm.
The Good Fight
For your organization to get ahead and stay ahead you need to make tough calls, face hard choices, and work through conflict. But productive conflict is still rare. Why?
