We hear it all the time. “I want my kids to be more accountable.” “I wish my people would be more accountable.” “They should be more accountable.” We tend to focus on our need for the people around us to be accountable. The truth is that only when we choose to be accountable will the people in our personal and professional lives be accountable.
All too often we want in others what we don’t have in ourselves. Accountability is no different.
