Managing managers poses unique challenges, especially when it comes to cultivating a culture of accountability. The leadership team of any organization sets the tone for accountability – the actions of leaders determine whether the supervisors they manage feel a sense of accountability themselves, as well as whether they hold their employees accountable.

Discover common myths about managing managers and how such perceptions can create barriers to accountability. Find out how to overcome these barriers and empower your direct reports to incorporate accountability into their teams for improved organizational results.
