Replying to LO13559 --

Responding to Michael, Ed, and Ben re accountability:

Thank you Ed for expressing the following:

>If accountability is only measured in numbers, then accountability is a
>problem area. But, IMHO, how can you have a shared vision, which is truly
>shared, unless you have some means of "mutual" accountability.

Michael, you responded to my earlier post that accountability meant green
eyeshades and ledgers to you. That is not my intent at all. What I am
speaking of has nothing to do with numbers, but an expectation that
employees and managers will be accountable to an organization's mission,
values and core competencies and when they are not that there will be
opportunities to correct that, and if those fail, then they can be asked
to leave the organization. I don't think every organization is a fit for
every employee.
