While accountability is often one of the toughest skillsets for business executives to master, it can also be one of the most critical elements of success, according to Greg Bustin, a business and leadership consultant.
In his book, “Accountability: The Key to Driving a High-Performance Culture,” Bustin lays out concepts, exercises and examples that executives can use to hold their employees accountable and push them to work to their potential.
Within his book, Bustin defines seven pillars of accountability – character, unity, learning, tracking, urgency, reputation and evolution – and explains the crucial role each plays in quality leadership.
According to Bustin’s expertise and his conversations with CEOs of successful small and midsize companies, accountability is, “more than a conversation. It’s an attitude and set of expectations that show up in every aspect of their firm’s operations: how they hire, communicate, develop people, and make decisions.”
“Accountability” is available on www.amazon.com for $19.59.
