We have been getting accountability all wrong in the compliance profession. It’s not a set of tasks – it’s a way of thinking and it has to come from the heart as well as the head. On Accountability: The Heart of Compliance Tom Fox and Sam Silverstein dig into what accountability means to the corporate compliance function and business organizations and most significantly, how to make it an integral part of your culture. In this episode Sam and I continue our three-part series to consider the current disaster Boeing finds itself in from the accountability perspective and what it might do to crawl out of the deep hole it finds itself in. In this Part 2, we consider accountability by management to the employees and other stakeholders. Some of the highlights include:

·      What is the Leader’s Commitment to Accountability?

·      Why should the new Boeing CEO rent out CenturyLink Field?

·      How did Boeing fail in the commitment to create a safe space for employees? How can that trust be regained?

·      What is an employee’s commitment to a good reputation? Why is this a long-term commitment? What can Boeing leadership do to commit to accountability in the long term?
