ABOUT THE BOOK

Every leader dreams of inspiring a team of individuals to unite around a common purpose, care deeply about achieving the team's goals, and work together to produce exceptional results. But in their quest to lead such a team, many leaders don't realize how they frequently encourage the opposite behavior.

When leaders blame other people or circumstances for problems, or fail to acknowledge how they may have contributed to undesirable outcomes, or try to "fix" people instead of fixing the systems within which their people work, they end up producing team members who are more concerned with passing the buck than solving problems and achieving results. Many people in leadership positions are missing something fundamental about leadership: leadership begins with modeling personal accountability. However, most leaders can set a much higher standard of accountability, they just don't realize it. How, then, can leaders develop accountability in themselves and in their organizations?

Leadership development consultant, Michael Timms, has discovered three powerful habits that not only make one a better leader, but also encourage those they lead to take greater accountability themselves. Using a compelling combination of teaching principles and illustrations backed by loads of scientific studies, Timms reveals three habits of personal accountability that are easy to implement and which can instantly begin transforming positional leaders into true leaders who inspire everyone to take more accountability for results.

Michael will be releasing sections of his book leading up to the book's release in Fall 2021. To receive these excerpts, sign up below:
