Empower & Hold Accountable

“What if they make mistakes?” This is one of the greatest fears of those who attempt to empower others. If you empower without holding people accountable, then you have reason to fear failure.
Accountability can come in various forms. It can be done more effectively by creating a culture of accountability. Though a weekly review meeting, every assignment and expectation can be reviewed in a non-threatening manner as part of a group. (For some this can be threatening, but it can be made easier by the group).
The more formal means would be through a planned quarterly or annual review done by the primary leader. Possibly a combination of the two methods would be ideal.
Without accountability, fear rules. But clear consistent, and affirming accountability is key to empowering others.
