  • Finalist Business Category 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.
  • Finalist Business Reference Category 2015 International Book Awards.
Do You Still Live In The Hope That Employees Will Follow Through On Their Promises, Responsibilities and Commitments?
Transform Hope into Certainty with the New Science of Accountability

Great business leaders understand that acceptance of greater personal accountability and responsibility leads organisations back on the path to success. But with the evolving nature of 21st century business, the practical steps that go into creating a high performance culture of accountability have become more muddled than ever.

Many organisations have seen temporary improvements, implementing traditional systems of accountability in an attempt to drive high performance in the workplace--only to quickly revert back to their old ways, or worse.

The #1 Amazon Best Seller Accountability Leadership Will Teach You:
  • What it really takes to lead a high performance culture of accountability
  • Why so many of today's employees avoid personal accountability and responsibility like the plague, and how to reverse that trend
  • How to sustain great performance through inspiring feedback, feed-forward and follow-through
  • What an accountability plan is, how to create one, and why it's considered the "secret weapon" behind successful business transformation
Filled with real world case studies and straightforward, easy to digest research, Accountability Leadership offers practical solutions that are direct, engaging, fast, cost-effective, proven, and easy to implement...

Immediate, Concrete Solutions You'll Take Away From This Book Include:
  • How to transform the "dark side" of accountability into a positive force for change
  • Why carrots and sticks no longer work--and what they've been replaced with
  • How to create compelling consequences that inspire people to perform at their best, and achieve the ultra productive workstate known as "flow"
  • Crack the code of high accountability conversations, turning confrontation into a productive and positive opportunity
Accountability Leadership Also Exposes the Truth On Topics Like...
  • How negativity bias covertly sabotages your feedback loop with your employees
  • The optimal ratio for positive to negative comments in feedback
  • The right amount of autonomy to give employees--without overdoing it
  • What lack of recognition is really doing to your workforce (hint: it's staggering)
  • The surprising biochemical effect of praise, and why it cannot fail
5 out of 5 Stars for Accountability Leadership

"In five jam-packed chapters and with clarity, simplicity and candour, Worrall teaches corporate leaders how to create a culture of accountability within their organisations. She also reminds us of the often disastrous consequences of failing to do so."

Marshall Goldsmith - million-selling author of the New York Times bestsellers, MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There

"Without accountability, organisations fail. In my experience, you must promote a culture of top-down accountability if you want to promote excellence in your organisation. And, that's exactly what this book will teach you how to do. Kudos to the author for choosing to address this oft-neglected issue with a powerful and informative book on accountability leadership."

Michael Massie - Amazon best selling author

"Accountability Leadership is a quality resource that will help leaders build a high performance culture where people achieve because they feel intrinsically accountable. I love how Accountability Leadership has brought together a range of disciplines - including psychology, sociology, and management - to focus leaders on motivating people to feel accountable........ and how everyone in an organisation can benefit from this proven and fresh approach."

Joanna Clark, Business Executive

About the Author:

Di Worrall is an award-winning business transformation executive, change management consultant, and executive coach to the world's most senior business leaders. She is also a seven times times award-winning published author and leading voice in the global movement of organisational change.

Over the course of her career, she's developed a personal and professional mantra about what she sees as the number-one issue that makes or breaks leadership performance today...
Accountability for outcomes, performance, and results.

That mantra goes like this: "The degree to which you have developed the capacity to hold your organisation and its people accountable for the delivery of results is directly proportional to your capacity to either build--or hemorrhage--value from your organisation."

...An Early Accountability Lesson Becomes a Catalyst for Change

In her first senior executive post, Di managed to turn a difficult accountability lesson into an opportunity for change when it became clear that the failure of her executive team to hold one another accountable was setting their entire organisation up to fail on its delivery of a major business initiative. Having no intention of letting the project go bad, Di led her fellow executives through specific actions to improve personal accountability throughout the leadership team. As a result, she managed to turn a pending loss into a remarkable profit. "Accountability was something we couldn't delegate," she says, recalling the initiative. "Much to our surprise, employees in our respective divisions started to intuitively follow suit, modelling our new behaviours."

Inspired by that early experience, Di developed an enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge relating to the "new rules" of high accountability (you can read more about these in her books in The Accountability Code Series), and has devoted her findings and expertise to enterprise transformation and change efforts ever since.

Review:

"...highly recommended for personal and professional instructional reference collections is Di Worrall's "Accountability Leadership: How Great Leaders Build a High Performance Culture of Accountability and Responsibility." - Midwest Book Review
