  • SYS 104: Productivity Tip: Create a Culture of Accountability and Continual Improvement in your Team

Steve has a new method of holding company meetings that have had excellent results bringing his team together and keeping them goal-driven and motivated.

Even though he has been utilising this method for only a month, it has been so successful that he will share the details with you in this episode. It also highlights possible changes that can be made to streamline his systems further.


💡 Each week, set aside a portion of your meeting for Value-Based Accountability. Each person must identify one target, goal or activity that they will complete before the next week’s meeting.

💡The task must be related to your company's core values, and it has to be a SMART goal (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timed).

💡 At the following week's meeting, the success or failure of the task is detailed, and its outcome is discussed. It is crucial to identify the reason behind failures as well as successes.

💡When we state to a group of people that we will complete a task, we are more likely to be held accountable for accomplishing it.

💡 If we share our mistakes, including ourselves as leaders, we can create a culture of continual improvement and turn errors and failures into positive learning opportunities rather than stigmas to be avoided.

💡Week after week, get your staff to rate their success from 1 to 10 so you can measure your people's ability to judge SMART goals.
