Michael Josephson on workplace accountability

Perhaps it’s because I’m hard at work on a book on character as a competetitive advantage; or perhaps it’s because, as a believer in outsourcing, that employees are more trouble than their worth (not really . . . that’s why I just finished a book called The Million Dollar Employee, which is being hatcheted by my editor this very moment). But I’ve started reading Michael Josephson’s newsletters, which have been primly wedging into my inbox for several years now, with a bit more interest. And if you’ve got employees — or you are one — I’m a big fan of his latest discussion of employee and manager accountability in the workplace. Money quote:

Sure, it’s easy to hide behind the assumption that management stupidity has no bounds, but responsibility is a personal burden that everyone carries. . . . We can avoid our responsibilities, but we can’t avoid the consequences of avoiding our responsibilities. All of us are accountable for what we allow as well as what we do. If we want to make our lives more meaningful, we should make our work meaningful.

That is the thesis front and center of The Million Dollar Employee. Thanks, brother Michael.
