How Leaders Can Inspire Accountability

Michael Timms
Three Habits That Make or Break Leaders and Elevate Organizational Performance

When leaders blame other people or circumstances for problems, or fail to acknowledge how they may have contributed to undesirable outcomes, or try to “fix” people instead of fixing the systems within which their people work, they end up producing team members who are more concerned with passing the buck than solving problems and achieving results.

Many people in leadership positions are missing something fundamental about leadership: leadership begins with modeling personal accountability. Most leaders can set a much higher standard of accountability, they just don’t realize it.

How Leaders Can Inspire Accountability reveals three powerful habits that will make you a better leader. Using a compelling combination of teaching principles and illustrations, Timms shares three habits of personal accountability that are easy to implement and which can instantly begin transforming positional leaders into true leaders who inspire everyone to take more accountability for results.
