Keith, as always, has words of wisdom that need to be heard and heeded far and wide. Thank you, Keith, for reminding us of that oft-forgotten concept of “accountability”.


Parents have tended to emphasize to our children that they need to be accountable for their actions. When I see a child or adult accept accountability, it impresses.me, probably because it should be more commonplace than it is. “It is my fault, I messed up, and I will take care of it,” are words that need to be said more often.

Sadly, one of the worst examples of the lack of accountability is the former president. He has long avoided accountability which has contributed to his blaming others or avoiding blame for his mistakes.

GM could have had a major market share in the electric car market, but destroyed (actually shredded EV-1s) an advantage and made Hummers instead, which are no longer made – even their Board of Directors questioned it. I worked for some CEOs and had clients who had CEOs that made changes that were dumb the day they were announced. First Union made two of the top ten worst acquisitions (Moneystore and Golden West) in banking history and it cratered them. Their newly named Wachovia (as they tried to distance themselves from their own name) had to be sold to Wells Fargo. Keith
