Joseph Grenny

How we approach people when they are held accountable greatly influences their response. We should acknowledge the variety of factors that may have led to an unfulfilled commitment or promise in order to refrain from vilifying others. This lets us engage in conversations with curiosity, respect, and a common goal. Thus, we can identify the reasons for unmet expectations, find solutions, and create plans to avoid similar issues in the future. Make sure people keep you updated. There are times when people fail to fulfill their commitments due to an urgent request that comes up. This can make it hard to keep the accountability conversation going. In the end, priorities can change at any time in our fast-paced world. However, even when priorities shift or emergencies occur, accountability and trust can still be maintained. In order to pivot expectations appropriately, ask people to inform you of any changes in circumstances as soon as possible.
