Accountability is often perceived as a threatening, uncomfortable and unfriendly word. The thought of it might cause feelings of stress, fear and discomfort.

The narrative is less, 'get on with it or there's trouble'
'I believe you've got this....and this could be transformative for you and your project - Go and get what you so deserve!'
