Accountability- It’s about Ownership

TGIM – Thank God It’s Monday!

This week’s focuses on core value 10: #ACCOUNTABILITY

ACCOUNTABILITY:  Know your responsibilities.  Live up to your commitments.  HOLD OTHERS ACCOUNTABLE.

The last three words are perhaps one of the hardest things for team members.  It is not only your job to live up to your commitments it IS your job TO HOLD OTHERS ACCOUNTABLE.  That’s what truly great companies do.   They don’t wait for “management”, “corporate” to step in.  They don’t settle for the “that’s just the way this works” mentality.  Maybe even more condemning is: “that’s not my job to fix it”.  Yes it it, it’s your job to be great, to fix it, and make others great around you!


Yes, If you see something wrong IT IS YOUR JOB TO FIX IT.  If you don’t feel comfortable fixing it, approach your coach or store leader, if that doesn’t work, talk to me.

Trust me, your coach, store leader and especially me, won’t magically find and fix all of our problems.  That’s up to YOU.  Each of us.  Accountable.
