The accountability ladder (50 hits)

8 Rungs Of Accountability
4 Rungs of Unaccountability
Blame others
Unconscious unaware
"I Can't"
"Wait and Hope"
Victims are people who don't know there is a problem, or who know there is a problem and blame someone else, or they say there is nothing they can do about it or they say they will wait it out and hopes it gets better.
4 Rungs of Accountability -- The Powerful
Making it happen
owning the responsibility for making it happen whether people help you or not
finding a solution
Acknowledge reality
Acknowledge problem, find the solution, take responsibility for making it happen whether you are helped or not and then you make it happen, you are accountable and the most powerful people do this.
