Excellent. Concise.

Good concepts, but it felt rambling for a <100 page book. It could have been a 12 page article or Ted Talk and gotten 98% of its point across

When they said everyone should read this book they weren't fooling around! No nonsense language that gets results! Highly recommend as this book was recommended to my by a high level performer.

I'm just curious what did it mean when you said you would have .... by 6 pm this past thursday Ms Carroll? As an example perception is that this is the third time you've stood me up for payment... so I'm just curious. What should I expect from you the next time you promise to have paymen

Recommends it for: Working People for sure!
Recommended to David by: Marty Grunder
We all think accountability is a end loaded activity. NOT end loaded!

To be held accountable one needs to know the details at the beginning. A person needs to clearly know what they are being accountable for, by when, how it is to be measured and by who. Accountability is about both parties being very clear about these details. Without it there can be no true accountability.

This book is a easy read, clearly written.

I thought this business book had a lot of good ideas about communication and using accountability in a positive way. I am sure I will refer to it again as I work and lead.

Short, simple, obvious but overlooked. A philosophy that applies to every area of life and provides tools for action and reaction. Will refer to it for years to come. A must for the workplace.
