"The most important quality I look for in a player is accountability. You've got to be accountable for who you are. It's too easy to blame things on someone else."

– Lenny Wilkens (HOF NBA Coach)

ACCOUNTABILITY

  •  The unwillingness to quit, the determination to find a solution, or the desire to complete a task. Get it done!
  •  The effort to get the project or task done when the first, second and third tries all go unsuccessful. Think responsibility 2.0!
  •  The champion holds himself accountable for the performance of the group and finds a way to push everyone towards success and accomplishment. Responsibilities can and will change, accountability does not!
