It’s easy to change your mind about the need for accountability by focusing on if you’re the one holding others accountable, or if you’re the one being held accountable.
And if you’re holding others accountable, when you mess up, it’s easy to let power go to your head and try to evade being held accountable. It may feel like you’re losing something – when really you’re just being held to the same standards as others.
True leaders are able to hold both themselves and others accountable for their actions, and by doing so build the culture of responsibility and ownership that can foster and create the next generation of leaders.
