Leadership a - z: A is for Action and Accountability: NaBloPoMo 4

To provide some structure through this month of posting on leadership topics, I thought that it might be useful to adapt the structure of the a-z that has been so popular with posts I have done at my Effective Group Coaching Facebook site.

I am envisioning that in these a-z of leadership posts, I will include questions to prompt leaders in their reflection process and/or possibly journalling. One recommendation for blog readers is to use the daily questions as part of your journalling process.

Starting off with A, the focus is on Action and Accountability.

Coaching Questions to ask around Action:
What actions are you supporting as a leader? What does this enable?
What actions are really supporting the most strategic goals of the team or company right now?
What actions are pulling the team off course?
How is each team member equipped to take action? Do they have the necessary resources? Are they given the necessary authority to get the job done?
What action do you need to undertake this week.

Coaching Questions to ask around Accountability:
What does accountability mean for you? In your context?
What are you accountable for?
Who are you accountable to?
How do you take responsibility for these results?

See you tomorrow with B!

Best wishes,
