Mastering accountability for yourself is critically important for the success of your Small Business. Now it’s time to teach the same skills to your employees and contractors to create a culture of accountability that will lead to your inevitable success.

Part 2 in our series on Accountability, today on the Small Business Show your hosts Dave Hamilton and Shannon Jean focus on how to transfer that awesome accountability you have embraced to your employees. Join us as we discuss why your examples of accountability are so important to your team and what techniques you can use to inspire accountability throughout your organization.

You will learn why and how to use the Systems vs. Goals theory to create a constant focus on iterating and embracing change and hear why it’s important to teach your employees to have an “exit strategy” from their position and how to use the famous Compliment Sandwich technique to manage mistakes.

We wrap up the show with another Business Therapy session that focuses on starting a new business related to online forums. Need some therapy for your own business?

All this, and a lot more to help your Small Business succeed. Listen in and then join us on the Small Business Support Group to ask questions and share your own tips!
