How Are You Holding Yourself Accountable?

How Are You Holding Yourself Accountable?

Accountability is a quality that stands out in our actions and how we conduct ourselves.  It builds character, trust and respect.

And yet, it is the number one behavior in leadership that is overlooked more than any other.

Being accountable requires being present—present to your actions, the way you communicate and the way you think.  It means acknowledging the good, as well as admitting when you have made a mistake. People respect you more when you are honest with yourself.


  • How often do you fall into the trap of negative thinking?  How can you begin to create a different dialogue with yourself?


  • Do you hold yourself accountable for taking care of yourself, having fun, and experiencing joy?


Accountability is a life-giving quality. Building internal accountability is a habit that helps you create possibilities, sharpen your intuition, and develop trust. And when you trust and accept yourself as a leader, you naturally create a team of people who thrive on collaboration and mutual respect.

What is one area of your work or life that you would like to change for the better, and how will you hold yourself accountable for it this month? Share with me on my Facebook page.

B Real,
