    6. The Cadence of Accountability: A Review of 4DX, Pt 4

    6. The Cadence of Accountability: A Review of 4DX, Pt 4

    Enjoy a few elevated minutes learning about the cadence of accountability as Jon and Jess continue their review of The 4 Disciplines of Execution.


    A Team in Rhythm
    Adding accountability to your regular routine ushers in a previously unattainable level of productivity. But finding the right method is key.
    No Team Member Left Behind
    When we started meeting weekly to keep a rhythm of accountability, we discovered struggling team members, projects that hadn't gotten the attention they needed, and miscommunications needing clarification. Our weekly huddles have brought us together as a team in ways we couldn't have imagined.

    Comments From Our Team!
    Cindi, Social Media Manager
    Frankly, without our team huddles at the beginning of each week, and then our little base touch in the middle of the week, I can tell you I would get absolutely LOST in the whirlwind of the many social media accounts I manage. Taking a  break to regroup, remember what I MUST accomplish in a day or week skyrockets my efficiency and productivity.
    Faith, Graphic Design
    The cadence of accountability encourages team learning and problem solving. By sharing our personal successes and failures during our WIG meetings, we are able to learn from each other and help clear the path for others.
