Using the text, Crucial Accountability, you will be making some key discoveries about areas that
you both succeed and struggle with in keeping yourself and others accountable. Follow these
Step 1: READ THE TEXT & TAKE THE ASSESSMENT: After reading the textbook, take the Self-
Assessment Survey (Appendix A, pp. 140) and review your results. The survey is divided in
the seven chapters of the book that cover the crucial accountability skills (five questions each).
You will need to read each chapter in order to understand your results and the process of
holding healthy accountability conversations. You will be handing in your completed Self-
Assessment Survey worksheet in a separate Moodle dropbox for the professor to review before
you complete your paper AND you will be attaching the same document to this paper as
Appendix A: Self-Assessment Survey
Step 2: ANALYZE & EVALUATE: Choose TWO (2) of the SEVEN (7) areas where you scored the
most “YES” answers and observe, analyze and reflect on those specific areas. Consider the
o What does this score mean to you about your ability to hold yourself or others
o Does it accurately reflect some areas of weakness in your accountability? Discuss
and explain your answer with examples from your life.
o Consider how your MVS shows up in the area of accountability. Include any insights
you may have about SDI results and your Crucial Accountability Survey results.
o For each of these 2 accountability areas you wrote about, make 2
recommendations how you can improve your accountability to yourself and others
as you navigate bad behavior and broken promises in your work/home/school/ life
relationships. For example, if you are evaluating, “Describing the Gap”, what two
recommendations can you make for yourself in this specific area to improve your
ability to describe the gap when holding an accountability conversation. Do this for
both of the sections you are analyzing.
Step 3: RECOMMENDATIONS: Based on what you have learned from the textbook, online
lectures and activities answer this question —> Why do you think accountability is an important
leadership skill – personally and organizationally? Provide support, citations and an example or
two to support your thinking from all course material to date and other outside sources as
