Chapter 13. Success factors > Shared accountability

Shared accountability

Virtual teams should consist of members who share accountability for the decisions made and the actions taken. Members should not only hold themselves personally accountable, but should also rely on the commitment of others. By holding each member of the team accountable for success or failure, everyone has something to gain when the team is successful.

Sharing accountability also means that each team member has a vested interest in the team’s performance and shares in its leadership duties. Team members who have a vested interest will ensure that decisions are thoroughly discussed before the end of each meeting, conflicts are discussed when the team reaches an impasse, and silent members are occasionally prompted to speak.
