“There are no bad teams, only bad leaders.” – Jocko Willink and Leif Babin, Extreme Ownership

Management is holding others accountable. Leadership is holding oneself accountable. We lead with accountability when we make no excuses, cast no blame, take responsibility, tackle the challenges, and invite others to join us. We may not always succeed, but we do not avoid the challenge and we do not cast blame.


Benefit of Accountability

When people lead with accountability, they learn–counterintuitively–that accountability increases freedom and power. On the surface it seems that accountability constrains us, but it does not. By committing ourselves, we are capable of achieving much more than we ever could with careless freedom or by trying to control others.
