Today, I went to library to listen Linda Galindo speech. I heard that she was going to talk about how people be accountable, I have no idea why people could be accountable, is she going to talk about the value of people or not? This topic makes me in, I want to know what specific she can teach us. Actually, she made me think of what people real value is after her wonderful speech.
In Linda Galindo’s speech, she pointed out that the only true accountability is "personal accountability" and the only way to achieve it is to take responsibility for the outcomes of your choices, behaviors and actions. There was one example she mentioned in the speech: someone did a great job in the interview, he ...view middle of the document...
I learned that People who are high personal accountability can contribute more to the company, since company are not need to expend extra sources to control and regulate them, they know what are doing and what they supposed to do. To the contrary, company which has abandon low personal accountability, it required spends more sources on them to control and regulate. That is the reason why a company has good HR department can help it save money, because they can recognize who have high personal accountability.
We also can look at personal accountability in another way, like how people deal with bad condition. Galindo said success 99% depend on personal accountability and 1% depend on condition, which is shock me at the moment. People always complained about how terrible situation they at now, and take that as an excuse to the reason why they can’t be a successful person. In my opinion, all the success is not for someone who is super lucky, but for the one who are fight for it. “Where there is a will there is a way.” I don’t think people do not put any effort on it can success in anyway. Like study, we have good environment, good devices can help us, if we not spend time on it, and we still can’t learn any or get a good grade. There are a lot of people who live in the third world still learning even without good condition like us, why do we make up excuse for ourselves not to study hard.
Personal accountability is very important no matter why you are at work or school; I think it is the basic require for someone why want to success. All the bad condition are challenging you, testing you, and checking if you are a good candidate to be a winner.
