You Already Know The Solution – Be Accountable

I am a leader, many hate that about me, many love that about me. Do I have faults? Sure I do, no one is perfect and I don`t try to be.

Do I make mistakes? Sure I do but I also own them and try my best to never repeat them.

At work I often see the blame game, meaning a person will refuse to take the blame for an action not completed.

For instance : I hire a mowing service and I expect the job to be finished in 2 days, I show up in 2 days to inspect and pay but the weed eating has not been done, the manager makes up excuses ” So and so was supposed to already had that done.” the problem was not with so and so, the person he was laying it on but himself, the manager, because he is over the job, he didn`t check his employees work to make sure it was done before deadline.

The next step this manager should take because the employee did not do his job, is to get rid of him, that`s right, fire him for not doing his job.

Some may think this is harsh but its not and that is how life is supposed to be, you have to be accountable for all actions or lack thereof. If this manager let that one employee slide, the rest will follow, slacking on their responsibility.

Its in the line of command so to speak. We have owner, manager and employees. All eyes are on each and how much they can get away with, so the owner holds the manager responsible for the employees under him, if he cannot deal with the job of keeping them in line then he needs to be replaced, that is how it works.

Each chain of command has to be strong or the whole falls apart.
