„Imagine a workplace where everyone cares about results, is engaged and contributes fully intellectually.
A place where people are healthier and happier because they have more influence, where everyone is a leader…”

Accountability Culture

What is “Accountability Culture”? 

  • Accountability Culture is a response to volatility and business complexity that requires quick and accurate decisions. In accountability culture decisions are made where there is information, and not hierarchically.
  • Accountability Culture is sometimes called the culture based on empowerment.
  • It becomes possible when we have a system of building Clarity and Competence.
  • Accountability Culture is also Leadership, which creates responsibility and courage in the team – Leaders, not Contractors.
  • Accountability Culture develops leaders at all levels and helps build a work culture for teams and at the meeting point of departments.
  • Accountability Culture is based on the many years of practice of Intent-Based Leadership International, an organization promoting empowerment in management. 

Effects of Accountability Culture:




Agile teams

It is a methodology developed by an international team of Captain David L. Marquet. The first implementation was in 1999, when Captain D. L. Marquet changed the worst nuclear submarine in the USS Navy into No. 1 MORE ABOUT DAVID MARQUET
The program has been proven in many business transformations in the USA and Europe, including Poland. While it is usually initiated at the top-management level, it involves people at all levels of the organization. It creates conditions and space for everyone to think, speak and act as a responsible leader.

Why is it worth?

Results improve where there is an Accountability Culture 

  • Teams react quickly and adequately to changes;
  • Everyone focuses on improving, not avoiding mistakes;
  • You have more innovations and ideas that you test and implement instead of just talking about them;
  • People themselves care about the results and the work environment, not passively waiting for guidelines and orders.

You can expect such effects from Accountability Culture!


The implementation of Accountability Culture means building culture through conscious leadership and shaping the right environment.

IBL Sonar

A great way to start your IBL journey. Using online surveys, observations and interviews, we scan the surface of your organization to define how far your culture reflects IBL principles, to what extent teams have clarity, competence and control to effectively manage the organization. Test it and see what works well. Identify what may be disturbing and where are the greatest levers of development.


Sometrics is an online survey that checks the level of Psychological Safety in your organization. At the same time, take into account how people feel involved, engaged and open in their daily work. Psychological safety, which is one of the pillars of Accountability Culture, is the main driver of team effectiveness. The safety culture makes people raise doubts, fears or ideas, take initiatives and be creative – without the fear of “being in the spotlight”!

An amazing experience based on real missions carried out by David Marquet. The team immersed in the reality of an atomic submarine carries out a mission to rescue survivors in hostile waters. The role of each crew member is critical to the success of the mission. Only teams with developed habits of cooperation, shared responsibility and trust are able to achieve goals without causing an armed conflict. Each team member becomes a leader responsible for achieving the goals. The simulation is extremely engaging and gives a unique opportunity to experience situations that can be easily translated into managerial situations of each leader.

What the VR Dive simulation teaches:

  • strategies for building an engaging environment
  • critical attitudes for building: trust, open communication, responsibility for results, commitment to the team and results
  • communication building shared responsibility
