Our televisions were filled with scenes normally reserved for Hollywood and make-believe: gun wielding SWAT teams, military Humvees bristling with weaponry, shots fired, suspects killed and apprehended. A terrible tragedy that started with bombs ended with bittersweet triumph. A job well done. A commitment for justice met.
This is Radical Accountability in action – unwavering responsibility for achieving the desired outcome. While this instance is terribly sad, it is also inspiring to watch what can happen when there is an unrelenting, full-on push to make what seems difficult, even impossible, a rapid reality.
Imagine if leaders in Washington had this kind of courage to transcend politics and create the results desired by the majority of U.S. citizens. Background checks for guns, simplified taxation, and reduced bureaucracy, to name just a few issues, would be more than just good ideas.
Leaders in companies across the globe also benefit when they commit to Radical Accountability. Goals are not just met, there’re exceeded. Good companies become market leaders filled with employees highly satisfied with their work and rewards. Buyers receive tremendous value, keep buying, and the cycle of prosperity generated and value received continues. Statistically, companies with a culture of Radical Accountability consistently generate at least 32% higher profits than those that do not.
Radical Accountability, an unwavering responsibility for achieving the desired outcome, is a commitment within the grasp of any company, any size, anywhere. It starts with a belief in a meaningful goal followed by a sustainable plan to achieve it, persistent implementation, relentless follow through, adjusting with speed, and leveraging successes for future gains.
If you’re ready to instill a culture of Radical Accountability, I’m here to help. On May 21st, I’m launching a new newsletter called Take No Prisoners. This free weekly memo explores how Radical Accountability changes lives and prospers companies. The first 200 people to sign up will also get to particulate in and receive a recording of a free Take No Prisoners TeleClass in June.
