Editorial Reviews

Review

Without accountability, the greatest strategies in the world are not worth the paper they are written on. This book shows you how to make accountability a part of your culture and improve performance at the same time. Use the strategies outlined in this book and reap the rewards! --David Cottrell, author of Monday Morning Leadership

Accountability is such an important business concept, particularly as organizations get more globally focused and pursue multiple initiatives to drive performance. Here, the concept is presented in a very simple, easy-to-understand manner. In less than 90 minutes, I was able to take away some powerful tools that I m finding helpful in managing a complex business. --Scott Schulman, President of Dow Jones Financial Information Services

At adidas, we speak over 50 languages. The Language of Accountability in this book cuts through them all. By simply using these tools, I am setting clearer expectations ... and see them being met more often. --Steve Bonomo, Head of Group Recruiting, adidas Group

Format: Perfect Paperback
As a manager and business analyst for a hedge fund, I track and process a lot of complicated information. In the past I have read business books that were full of good ideas, but they required extra study time to actually apply them. It was time that I don't have. "Winning With Accountability" has concepts that I was applying to my own work and with the people around me that impacted us before I was done reading the book. The four pieces of the accountability puzzle is so simple to understand and apply that my very next interaction was more efficient and...more accountable. Leader or follower, you will learn more efficient ways to communicate both up and down your corporate ladder.

Winning with accountability is essential for people in leadership roles. It's a very quick, easy to read, practical, and motivating book that gives any leader solutions to the common challenges we face everyday. Clear and concise accountability is what is speaks, and a great tool to help you navigate and build a culture of accountability within the corporate world.

"Here, Jason, is a copy of my book." And, with that, I became a fan of "Winning with Accountability."

I met Henry just a couple of weeks ago, we were both hired by the same firm to present seminars on our topics of expertise (our books!). As I was finishing my day, he was getting ready to start his; and that's when we exchanged books.

I read it on the airplane flight back home that night. Twice. Yup, it was one of those books where I read the last line of the book, turned right back to the first page, and went through the book again, this time writing even MORE notes in the margins!

(BTW: Here's the last line, "Integrity is note in a statement. Integrity is in the actions that follow your statement.")

Ok, so first, the page numbers that stand out to me in this book (if you want the "quick version of action points, go here first): 19, 24, 26, 28, 38, 48, 56, 60, 85, 90.

For a moment, reflect on the subtitle (the promise!) of Henry's book: The Secret Language of High-Performing Organizations.

Next, some takeaways (AKA: the reasons I really, REALLY like this book):

1. Early on, Henry recommends we at least consider implementing a "front-loaded accountability" mindset. How do we do that, spend time deep-thinking about a project/event/task so as to provide crystal-clear expectations to our team/client/project manager.

Over the past few years, I've learned (sometimes the hard way) what can happen if we DON'T clarify the plan, hopes, aspirations, and expectations. Of course with every experience I get a little better, but now that I've read and begun to implement Henry's advice, I am already becoming clearer in my delegation.

2. The "rules" in creating accountability: Easy to know, not so simply to implement.

Packed with great advice and examples for creating accountability upfront. A quick read (took me about an hour), direct, to the point information. I intend to provide copies for my staff so we can all begin speaking in accountable language to improve communicaton with and expectations of each other.

Format: Perfect Paperback
Over the course of my professional career I have read numerous best-selling business books. Business improvement, team management, executive biographies etc. They've all been great books, and after reading each one I would typically keep some of the key insights in mind during my daily course of business. But inevitably, this would only last a couple of weeks before those insights lost their impact.

Winning with Accountability is different. I finished the book quite a while ago and I am still actively engaged with its concepts. I recently purchased a copy for my Managing Partner with the intention that we introduce and integrate the book's "accountability language" into our workplace.

I fully anticipate this book will change the culture at my firm.

Many business/personal development books seem to drag on. Winning with Accountability is a quick read and left me with roadmap on how to improve my skills. With acronyms like S.M.A.R.T.E.R and the quick reference guide I can refer back to the key points until they become second nature.
