Welcome to video six in this series of 34 two minute videos detailing the key concepts in my new book, Made to Thrive. Made to Thrive outlines the five key roles that a leader must undertake to transition from being a good leader to being a great leader. Those five roles are: accountability, ambassador, culture, strategy, and succession planning.
Today we’re talking about accountability, and in particular, 1.2. All employees report to their peers weekly on the two key performance indicators which define their role.
It’s one thing to have a leader who holds people accountable. What’s better is when a team holds each other accountable. When we’ve got true peer accountability.
This doesn’t mean that in a team with peer accountability that the leader has no role.
Instead, the leader must confront difficult situations. And instead of being the primary arbiter, or the first point of conflict for any conflict, they must be the final arbiter.
Imagine you’re in a team meeting with five of your team members. And one of the team members is reporting for the fourth or fifth week in a row that they’re not gonna make their results.
They’re not gonna make their numbers or their key performance indicators. What’s gonna be the consequence?
In a culture of peer accountability, many of the team members would be inquiring what the person is going to be doing to get back on track to turn around their under performance.
Finally, it removes the undue burden on the team leader to be the sole source of discipline.
