How Did That Happen?
Individual Accountability Assessment
People clearly understand the expectations I have of them.
I rarely find myself asking the question “How did that happen?” when the results people deliver disappoint me.
I hold positive and candid accountability conversations with people when they don’t meet my expectations.
I communicate the “Why” in a compelling way whenever I ask someone to do something for me.
I create and maintain alignment by taking the time to persuade and convince others to enroll in my “Cause.”
People meet the deadlines and keep the commitments they have made to me.
People rarely ask me to re-explain and clarify what I really need from them.
I usually discuss the boundaries associated with what I am asking people to do ahead of time.
Rather than settle for merely getting people to comply with my requests, I work to capture their “Hearts and minds.”
I use “Persuasion power” rather than “Position power” to create alignment when I detect that people don’t agree.
People seem comfortable with the way I hold them accountable.
The people I depend upon follow-through on the things I need them to do.
I inspect what I expect.
People pro-actively report their progress on the things I ask them to do.
I effectively hold others accountable.
