Words as Bond

Accountable People Achieve Results

We take responsibility, but we are held accountable. And good leaders hold themselves, not just others, accountable. The year is just about over — okay, many folks are on vacation at this point so for all practical purposes, the year is over — and so this is a good time to look back and hold ourselves accountable.
