With the toughest economic downturn in recent history, the issue of accountability has taken center stage. However, accountability is often confused with punishment, fault, blame, and guilt. In this book, the author argues that the only true accountability is "personal accountability", and the only way to achieve it is to take responsibility for the outcomes of your choices, behaviors, and actions.
The 85% Solution reveals that to be truly accountable, leaders must accept no less than 85% of the responsibility for the outcomes of their actions; empower themselves to take the risks and actions they must in order to get what they want; and show they are willing to answer for the outcomes that result from their choices and actions. This book:
- Offers a practical guide to personal accountability and reveals how this leads to personal and business success
- Guideslisteners to take the risks and actions necessary to reach their goals
- Contains self-assessments for determining one's personal accountability index
