There's an epidemic of underperformance plaguing teams and organisations and it's caused by issues with accountability.

Activity but no progress, meetings with no follow-up, confused responsibilities, impossible demands, missed milestones, low morale, poor engagement, talent drain...

From broken promises and unrealistic expectations to finger-pointing and cultures of avoidance and blame, issues with accountability – and the fear that drives them – are rampant across business, government, and NGOs.

If you have people in your team, you have issues with accountability.

Own It! is the book for you if...

  • You've been let down by a broken promise or expected to do the impossible at work
  • You're struggling with lack of time, too many commitments and a culture of blame
  • You're tired, frustrated and overwhelmed with what lies ahead and can't see a way forward
  • You're a leader who knows your team could perform better, but aren't sure what to try next
  • You're ready to break the mould, feel energized and engaged with your work, proud of your achievements, and excited about the future
  • Own It! Honouring and Amplifying Accountability
