In team settings, leaders are often the ones in charge of stepping in and rectifying issues when the team falls short of expectations. While this “leader-led accountability” allows the leader a great deal of control in ensuring that the desired results are achieved, it doesn’t leave much room for the team and its individual members to learn, grow, and become the best version of themselves. 

As an award-winning trainer, facilitator, coach, and the author of Revolutionize Teamwork: How to Create and Lead Accountable Teams, Eric Coryell is an expert at helping leaders engage their employees through the creation of functional and accountable teams. In Episode 114 of The MINDSet Game® podcast, Eric discusses the following:

  • Tips for how leaders can become more comfortable with surrendering some control to their teams – and why it’s important to do so
  • Key attributes of functional, accountable teams, and what distinguishes them from teams that are only functional but not accountable
  • The importance of trust and shared fates within a team, as well as both healthy and unhealthy ways to foster these concepts
