When it comes to making things happen, talking, complaining, blaming, finger pointing, won’t move the needle in the right direction.
In your workplace and personal life you can enhance your impact and make more of a difference, for yourself and others, by using a strategy that guarantees success – be more personally accountable:
- Suggest solutions instead of simply describing problems.
- Based on your organizational vantage point and level of authority, bring ideas to the right people or begin doing what’s needed to unfreeze old patterns and capitalize on opportunities.
- Be decisive and take action – big transformational actions or small simple steps. Your act of courage – be it subtle or significant – can generate much needed movement that creates a ripple effect that will begin to shift the situation.
Personal accountability is a powerful ingredient in change – at home and in the workplace.
