Many leaders feel frustrated by what seems like a low level of personal ownership among people in their organization. Things don’t get done on time, problems don’t get solved, and issues get ignored rather than proactively addressed before they become problems. Sound familiar?
This episode is part 3 of a four-part series of interviews with Jonathan Raymond about how to practice emotional transparency to cultivate accountability within your team. This time, we talk about the four steps of emotional transparency that cultivates accountability.
Emotional transparency is, first of all, the ability to look inward and identify what you’re feeling in the moment — about a situation, about another person, about yourself. Second, it’s the skill of being able to articulate what you’re feeling in a way that is appropriate to the situation (e.g, with a child, with your boss, etc.).
Jonathan Raymond is the author of the book Good Authority: How to Become the Leader Your Team Is Waiting For. He is the CEO at Refound, a leadership training company that teaches people how to have human conversations at work. Previously, Jonathan was the CEO of EMyth (the company behind the famous book), where he led the transformation of a global coaching brand.
