Leaders: Are your accountability systems consistent?

Accountability programs can’t spring into existence whenever there is a perceived accountability problem and then fade into oblivion when that problem appears to go away. Nor can an accountability program be engineered to eliminate specific employees who are perceived to not be doing enough. Design an effective accountability program that is reasonable, and not overbearing, then stick with it. Also, be sure it is universally applied and not just used on targeted employees. Your workforce needs to know the accountability system is fair, consistent, and not personal.
