I ran across this article that was published last year, and the message is so powerful I wanted to share it again (and many of you may not have seen it). It's about accountability - a very hot topic on most teams and in most organizations.
The author shares the Accountability Ladder (which is in my book, Leading With GRIT). It is such a great tool. I hope you can benefit from it as much as my clients and I have.

Some great reflection questions to ask ourselves:
What are we doing to empower peer accountability on our teams?
Is there anything we could be doing more of? Less of?
Do we walk the talk when it comes to accountability for ourselves?
Do we "catch people doing things right", rather than look for what they've done wrong?
How do we encourage learning and taking risks (and make it ok to make mistakes)?
Are we enabling triangulated conversations, or are we teaching our people how to have productive dialogue without getting the boss involved every time?
