Episode #55 Outline:

2:50: Errol kicks off by talking about Season 3 and what he wants to cover. He asks Zac What do you think of when you think of accountability?  Errol also talks about what the word means to him, and makes sure everyone is on the same page in terms of what the word connotes.

11:20: Errol lays out what the Accountability Funnel is for Zac.  He also gives a great quote here that he calls ‘the answer to the test’, “You Can’t Hold Someone Accountable If They Don’t Know What They’re Supposed To Be Accountable To.”

13:40: Errol breaks down the Accountability Funnel into specific parts: Yourself, Culture, Guidelines for Behaviors, and a Process of Planning and Executing.

15:50: Zac brings up his almost decade-long struggle to hold people accountable.

17:00: The big question ultimately is what happens if people still dont listen? The difference between accountability and consequences.

21:20: Outro.
