On your team, who is the first one to honor a commitment? I hope the answer is YOU!
You are the role model, your team members look toward you to set the tone. And when someone does not follow through on a commitment, how you respond signals to others, whether or not they too can blow off deadlines. Enjoy these thoughts on team accountability, and feel free to send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Perhaps one of your questions will become a video that helps us all become better project managers!
