Synopsis: An inspirational self-improvement guide from a leader in personal and organizational accountability. Every day, we are faced with decisions from the moment we wake up until the moment we go to bed. Decisions about our families, our business, our futures. We are accountable for making decision, big and small, the cast the paths of our lives. So why do we spend so much time finger-pointing and blaming others? Mark Samuel is a master of accountability. In his book, teaches us how to go from victim to accountable and how to actually do what we say we are going to do. Taking ownership of the power of personal choice, regardless of the obstacles, means not only walking the talk but knowing what talk you are going to walk. Faced with fear of blame, fear of failure and fear of success, Samuel provides inspiration and strategy for impacting the world by achieving your goals. One of Samuel's main arguments in owning accountability is recognizing your current reality. He challenges readers to embrace certain "tools" that can place us in the right frame of mind to accept responsibility and accomplish all of our set goals both individually and as team members including: ·Compassion: in taking accountability, also creating solutions that consider the welfare of all parties involved and for the entire organization in general. ·Openness: let each member of the team, regardless of rank, have a chance to speak up and share their perspective in problem-solving ·Sincerity: acknowledge the current reality with honesty yet without judgment. Call it what it is without criticizing at this stage From identifying the common roadblocks to accountability to focusing on the factor of forgiveness in taking responsibility, Samuel shows readers how to effectively stop the cycle of victimhood and blaming and shows us how to engage in the "accountability loop," a process of pragmatic self-examination, recognition and owning, and action. Using examples from the worlds of business, sports, parables and his own life story, Samuel highly-praised accountability lessons are now available for anyone to learn from.
