It’s a lot easier to preach accountability than to practice it.
Accountability is, if not a magic solution to everything, certainly a solution to many things. Business books are full of examples of companies that hit serious difficulties because people refused to take the steps to accountability.

Getting Results Through Individual And Organizational Accountability
There are three broadly defined characteristics that define a “Big Bang Disruptor”:
Big Bang Disruptors don’t follow the stages of the traditional market adoption model. Forget about the gradual steps from “early adoption” to “market maturity”, it’s very much about entering the market with a big bang.
In recent years a new—disquieting—form of disruptive innovation has emerged. It doesn’t follow the classic model, entering the market as a cheap substitute to a high-end product and then gradually increasing in quality and moving up the customer chain. Instead, the innovation beats incumbents on both price and quality right from the start and quickly sweeps through every customer segment. This kind of “big bang” disruption can devastate entire product lines virtually overnight
Great leaders are committed to developing other people as leaders, encouraging them to step out of their comfort zone, and helping them learn from their setbacks and mistakes instead of punishing them for it.
Ordering someone in the office to come to you may feel like you have authority but can damage their respect for you.
Instead, saying in a calm voice, "Would you mind if we chatted for a bit?" or "May I talk to you?" is more effective as people feel they can act of their free will.
