The New Math of Employee Accountability
Senator Elizabeth Warren asked John Stumpf, CEO of Wells Fargo during a hearing on Capitol Hill if he was stepping down as CEO as a result of millions of unauthorized accounts being opened without the permission of the account holders. After he said no, she then asked if he fired the executive in charge of the retail banking division. The answer again was no.
And so it goes, most people frequently, mistakenly, correlate accountability with if it didn’t go well, someone should be fired. Clearly in this situation there is an accountability issue, which needs to be addressed. But how?
Accounting is a system for keeping track of and reporting financial transactions. Everybody knows that. Accounting can be vastly complex, but at its core, it is a simple concept—a balance statement that reconciles debits and credits. Everybody knows that, too, right
But what about “accountability” when it comes to performance? Not everyone would define that word the same way. And hardly any of us would associate accountability with financial accounting, even though they’re very similar—not just grammatically, but mathematically.
In this interactive session we will explore employee accountability and you will learn how to apply a simple model for employee accountability to transform employee performance.
