How to inspire your team for a successful 2018

We are just a few weeks away from the end of 2017, you should be very close to achieving the targets and critical numbers you planned to reach by year end and in fact, you should already have written your 2018 business plan. 

2017 has been another tough business year, and with the introduction of VAT next year, 2018 is likely to provide some interesting dynamics and no doubt distractions.  The success of your Company will in the most part have been down to your leadership and management of your team and their support and commitment to you these past 12 months.

Accountability essentially means 'the ability to hold yourself to account' that basically means 'the buck stops with you'.

So, let’s take a closer look at why being able to hold yourself and others to account is important and some tips on how to improve your score (also see below for more details of how you can measure this with our questionnaire)
