What is the Importance of Ownership?
When employees are in danger of not achieving their results, we want them to analyze what they are doing wrong, assume that they will find solutions and that they will act to resolve them, that is, we want them to assume their Accountability. But that doesn't usually happen.
“Accountability” means “proactive accountability”. Lack of personal responsibility in achieving organizational goals is a pervasive problem. On average, 60% of employees in each organization admit not taking action when they identify a problem within their organization. This is due to the “victimization cycle”: in the face of inefficiency or lack of results, we blame circumstances or third parties.
To overcome this situation, the most successful companies have carried out Accountability development programs to align their employees and increase their engagement.
