Every good relationship is built around trust.
With trust comes accountability, the skill to accept responsibility for your work.
A lack of accountability goes hand in hand with a lack productivity, which is damaging to any business.
Accountability is needed for effective business development and its importance should not be denied or ignored. Control over work is dynamic in any workplace, but problems arise when others control how the work gets done, and accountability is decreased.
Leadership behaviours should work to endorse a greater sense of accountability amongst your staff, and encourage employees to step up and take responsibility for their actions.

1. Drive for Results
Have a clear definition of what results are required from employees.
2. Honesty and Integrity
Promote courage among employees to tell the truth about projects and work.
Constantly build and develop within the work place.
4. Clear Vision and Direction
Identify what is needed to be accomplished and how to get there.
5. Problem Solving and Technical Expertise
Teach skills and provide training so employees know your expectations.
Listening and talking to employees, making sure communication is always a two-way street.
7. Ability to Change
Initiating change and the ability to promote change in your employees.
8. Collaboration and Resolving Conflict
Ensure there is no competing within the group, rather, focus on fostering cooperation within the team.
