Take Accountability to Earn Equity - Deepstash

Take Accountability to Earn Equity

When you’re negotiating with other people, ultimately if someone else is making a decision about how to compensate you, that decision will be based on how replaceable you are. If you have high accountability, that makes you less replaceable.

If you look at the hierarchy of capital in a company, the employees get paid first. The equity holders get paid last and take on greater risk but in exchange, they get the nearly unlimited upside.

When every member of a team can take on accountability for their portion you get a well-functioning team.
