Interdependence at Work, or How Can I Count On My Colleagues to Do What They Say They Will?

Dwight Mihalicz,

collaborationWorkers in organizations to-day are highly interdependent. There are few positions where one is not dependent on others in some way for success in their own work. For managerial roles, interdependence is a fact of life.

The following figure shows the results of a research project into managerial effectiveness carried out in partnership between Effective Managers™ and the Telfer School of Business at the University of Ottawa. In this part of the research, managers were asked several questions about their interdependence with others.

What is Accountability?

Dwight Mihalicz,

Part 1 of the Effective ManagersTM Understanding Accountability Series What is Accountability?

We all have obligations at work. These obligations come at us from many directions… our peers, our clients, our subordinates, and yes even our bosses! The progression of steps an individual goes through when receiving and performing assignments varies. This is all thought to have something to do with accountability. Yet for managers, ensuring subordinates are accountable while executing strategy is no easy feat. In part one of a multipart series, I discuss key concepts of accountability—what it is, how it impacts managers and how to approach this critical piece of the puzzle for effective management.

What is accountability, and how does it impact managerial success?

What do we mean by accountability? We often hear it used to describe businesses that are “not being held accountable” or individuals “needing to take more accountability” for their actions. Are you accountable? Am I? How is accountability used in the organization and what impact does it have on the day-to-day job managers’ need to do?
