When the topic of Accountability comes up, the phrase “holding people accountable” is not far behind. Two distinctly different images come to mind. The first comes from a position of frustration and blame, as in, “If only someone would hold those people accountable, we’d be a lot more successful!” Picture two hands around someone’s neck. The second image is based on the notion of working in ways that build such strong personal commitments among team members that they show up, follow through, and give their very best. Picture two hands nestling and lifting up an individual or a team.
