– Primarily through incentives: 17%
– Primarily through consequences: 20%
– Through an even balance of incentives and consequences: 50%
– I don’t drive accountability in a consistent manner: 13%
Where’s the accountability? A balanced mix of you are using incentives and consequences to drive accountability. The striking number is the 13% who aren’t consistently driving accountability at all. If you’re in this group, ask yourself if you’re getting the performance and results you desire. If not, I’m pretty sure there’s a causal link between those results and how you’re not consistently holding people accountable. Without clear incentives and consequences, you’ll find it hard to change performance.
