Accountability. To some, it is a buzzword. But it should not be. Accountability is not a one-time thing, it is an always-thing. In order for your company culture to truly embrace it, everyone must be held accountable, no exceptions. If anyone on your team only acts accountable as they see fit, it will sow discord. Tolerance of the proverbial “bad eggs” will cause disengagement of the ones that are bought-in to a full-on accountable culture. Tune in now to hear how we build a culture of accountability at Southwest Michigan First!
