Leaders: Is a lack of accountability alienating your high performers?

Leaders who fail to follow up on expectations, or who shelter poor performers not only fail to inspire, they also alienate their highest performers. Your team members want challenging expectations and a leader who hold them accountable for meeting them. Not following up communicates that you do not care if your team succeeds or fails. Furthermore, high performers want to work on a team with members who will partner with them as they seek excellence. Poor performers who find a safe haven with a toxic leader ultimately punish and alienate the team’s high performers. Avoid this pitfall by holding your teams accountable to clear, challenging and measurable standards!
