An excellent way to improve accountability in the workplace is to set clear standards and expectations before starting a new project or task. That means not waiting for things to go wrong and finding someone to blame. To make that happen, you should:
✓Ensure to assign everyone action items whenever proposing a new challenge. When everyone knows the overall goals and their specific roles in achieving them, it is easier to hold team members accountable.
✓Use team meetings to let everyone know who is accountable for which duties, motivating the team to get specific tasks done, and raising awareness of teamwork importance.
✓As often as possible, meet with your team members one-on-one to describe the desired outcome, but let them find their own way to achieve it.
Frequent communication also builds rapport, allowing you to connect with teammates on a personal level. By doing so, you're able to boost engagement, productivity, and profits, too.
