This season flipped the script on traditional thinking, causing a fundamental shift in the way we relate to accountability.
In the old paradigm, accountability was about explaining what went wrong; it was something to avoid; something that took up time at work; it was either the thing that missing or the thing we were subjected to; and it caused lots of suffering in organizations.
Out of listening to this season’s episodes, a new orientation accountability has emerged that is empowering; one that’s about creating the future; one about partnership; in fact, it opens a whole new paradigm of how we can interact with others.

[Counter-intuitive, deeper dive into topics that are critical to creating a leadership impact]
“One thing that’s unique about podcasts is it’s an intimate conversation that you’re getting a chance to participate in, and that is especially useful with a topic like accountability, since it can be a confronting conversation for people.” – Paul Adams
“One of the things that I really liked this season is – it was just a small example but I’ve gotten a lot of feedback from it – and that’s the difference between enforcing standards in accountability and inspiring standards in accountability.” – Kari Granger
“I love the episode we did about how to mess up, fess up, and level up, because it gave us that ability of like ‘everybody makes mistakes, not everyone can get everything done perfectly all the time.’ And that it’s actually an opportunity to further a relationship.” – Paul Adams
“Maybe our next season – Season Three – ought to be a deep dive into trust as a critical component of hard performance metrics as well as the qualitative aspects of culture and experience and fulfillment at work. Let us know what topics, questions, and challenges around trust you’d like us to cover.” – Kari Granger
