Don’t blame the employee

Organizations rarely believe they’re to blame when an employee underperforms, but if the organization doesn’t provide the opportunity for success, it’s their fault when people falter.

Fault and Responsibility are Different

Fault is past tense. Responsibility is present tense. Fault results from choices that have already been made. Responsibility results from the choices you’re currently making, every second of every day. I found this to be a great key idea in the book by Mark Manson. We can take responsibility without fault.
