Today we are talking about the thing that absolutely determines the success of your business! ACCOUNTABILITY.

My definition of accountability is ownership of an area, a result, or a philosophy.

How are the people on your team viewing themselves? Do they see themselves as employees who are there just to do tasks, or do they own an area, a result, or a philosophy?

If the people on your team are there just to complete tasks, that's all they are doing. If you aren't results, it doesn't matter to them because they did their job. If they take ownership of an area, they are responsible for getting results in that area and they'll begin to bring gameplans to the table, instead of simply completing tasks.

So how do you get your team to take ownership and start striving for massive results? Here's what I would tell you.

1- Address the Obvious! When there's a challenge or if you're not getting results in an area, you can't just ignore it and keep working in your business. Sit down with the person who is in charge of that area and find a solution. Remember, it's not about blame, right, or wrong, it's about finding a real solution to a challenge.

2- Treat your team like you treat yourself. As an entrepreneur, you understand that when something is not accomplished, it doesn't mean that you're a bad person, it just means that there's an opportunity to make something better. Treat everyone on your team with this same attitude and eliminate blame, right, and wrong.

3- Make the main focus, the main focus! Stay focused on having everyone on your team become partners in your business rather than staying focused on the completion of tasks.
