Not only is it a myth, it can also be the root cause of you having to carry your team.
Holding someone accountable is only possible, after the damage has been done. An upset customer. A misplaced order. A gap in the scheduling can not only lead to lowering your customer base it can also cause your business to lose profits.
Our approach is to teach leaders to help employees find the accountability within through training, reinforcement and motivation. An employee that you build up is worth 100 times an employee you have to (or try to) control.
Lead the people. Manage the systems. We can help.
