Looking for ways to demand more accountability? Give your people assignments, confirm they understand and then set a precise deadline for them to produce results or turn in their work. Say, “I’d like to receive your full report by 3:30 p.m. on July 30,” not, “Get that to me by the end of July.” Send a follow-up note to reinforce the deadline.
