How To Build Accountability Quickly

How To Build Accountability Quickly

Hi, there. It’s Stacey Ashley from Today, I’ve got one great tip to reframe.

So, I’ve noticed a real trend in all my training and webinars lately which is that everyone is saying, “Oh my gosh, I’ve got all these people around me, and they’re just not stepping up. They’re not being accountable and I just don’t know what to do.”

I want to teach you how to reframe.  To make a really simple turnaround, a little intervention if you like to get those people that are a little bit below the line straight away back up above the line and of course you can use this for self coaching as well.


The trick is, when you hear a negative statement like, ‘It’s too hard’, ‘I can’t do it’, ‘I’m too busy’, that you can just ask one simple question right back at that person to help them be accountable and responsible for their own actions.

Make sure it’s a quick and positive question that enables them to take action so they can really retain ownership. So if someone says something to you like ‘It’s too hard’. Then you can just ask them a really simple question in the positive like ‘How can you make it easy?’

If it’s ‘I’m just too busy today’, then it might be a quick question like ‘How can you make some time?’. Or, ‘If you had five minutes, what one thing could you get done?’

So we really just want to flip it around and make it nice and easy for them to take some action in a really positive way.
