What is Meeting Acountability?
Accountability is the acknowledgment of responsibility for getting things done and then reporting back to the group about results. Leaders encourage accountability in meetings by:
- Ensuring participants actively engage and contribute to meeting results, creating joint ownership for meeting outcomes.
- Assigning clear action items with a named owner and due date.
- Sending out meeting notes so everyone can see and remember the commitments made during the meeting.
- Following up after the meeting to see that action items get completed in a timely fashion.
