"...highly recommended for personal and professional instructional reference collections is Di Worrall's "Accountability Leadership: How Great Leaders Build a High Performance Culture of Accountability and Responsibility." - Midwest Book Review 

About the Author

Di Worrall is an award-winning business transformation executive, change management consultant, and executive coach to the world's most senior business leaders. She is also a seven times times award-winning published author and leading voice in the global movement of organisational change.

Over the course of her career, she's developed a personal and professional mantra about what she sees as the number-one issue that makes or breaks leadership performance today...
Accountability for outcomes, performance, and results.

That mantra goes like this: "The degree to which you have developed the capacity to hold your organisation and its people accountable for the delivery of results is directly proportional to your capacity to either build--or hemorrhage--value from your organisation."

...An Early Accountability Lesson Becomes a Catalyst for Change

In her first senior executive post, Di managed to turn a difficult accountability lesson into an opportunity for change when it became clear that the failure of her executive team to hold one another accountable was setting their entire organisation up to fail on its delivery of a major business initiative. Having no intention of letting the project go bad, Di led her fellow executives through specific actions to improve personal accountability throughout the leadership team. As a result, she managed to turn a pending loss into a remarkable profit. "Accountability was something we couldn't delegate," she says, recalling the initiative. "Much to our surprise, employees in our respective divisions started to intuitively follow suit, modelling our new behaviours."

Inspired by that early experience, Di developed an enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge relating to the "new rules" of high accountability (you can read more about these in her books in The Accountability Code Series), and has devoted her findings and expertise to enterprise transformation and change efforts ever since.

I'll never forget the experience of being the only person in my masters-level leadership and ethics course who advocated top-down accountability. Having run my own successful small business for years, I was shocked to hear everyone from the course professors to my fellow classmates decrying the need for accountability. One student even loudly proclaimed, "What does it matter?" Many of these people were already working in the corporate sector in key positions, and some would go on to become consultants to various industries. And as an employer, I wouldn't hire a one of them for their absolute lack of regard for personal accountability in the workplace. Without accountability, organizations fail. In my experience, you must promote a culture of top-down accountability if you want to promote excellence in your organization. And, that's exactly what this book will teach you how to do. Kudos to the author for choosing to address this oft-neglected issue with a powerful and informative book on accountability leadership.

Accountability Leadership is one of those rare books that you can read on Monday...and use what you've learned in order to start creating lasting change within your organization before the end of the week.

Workplace cultures abound with lip service to the idea of accountability--everyone seems to agree that an accountability culture leads to increased sales, productivity, and employee satisfaction.

The trouble is that most of us never learn the skills we need to implement it, especially within a large group. This is even truer with the rise of the "knowledge worker", leaving the rules of accountability more confusing than they used to be.

Sure, there are some books on the subject...but more often than not they read like textbooks, or daunting tomes with drawn out case studies that make it easy to miss the forest for the trees.

Accountability Leadership combines the best of both worlds, giving you an understanding of how and why our corporate accountability skills have stagnated, and how to practically and quickly get up to speed, reversing that trend immediately, before it's too late.

(By the way, the case studies in the book are invaluable--as well as quick, readable, and to the point.)

I found Accountability Leadership a must-read for any CEO, executive, manager, teacher, journalist...essentially anyone in a position of authority, or one that hinges on responsibility. This is especially true if there are known accountability issues within your organization--though the book makes for a great preventive measure as well.

Accountability Leadership is a quality resource that will help leaders build a high performance culture where people achieve because they feel intrinsically accountable.

I love how Accountability Leadership has brought together a range of disciplines - including psychology, sociology, and management - to focus leaders on motivating people to feel accountable........ and how everyone in an organisation can benefit from this proven and fresh approach.

Di Worrall has challenged traditional command and control practices and incentive programs, by engagingly explaining the science of motivation, including the `Hawthorn Effect' and `Flow'. I found these concepts (and others in the book) to be fascinating, and could immediately see how they can be applied in any organisation.

Accountability Leadership makes it clear for leaders that communication, compelling consequences, and culture create the foundation for high performance. The book makes it easy to see how people are motivated, creative and content when there is a clearly communicated strategy, autonomy with understandable parameters, and a culture where people can grow and are recognised by leaders who are interested in what they do.

The great part about Accountability Leadership is that Di Worrall gives us a practical resource, and a framework to make it work. I'll be keeping this resource close to hand, and will highly recommend it the other executives and leaders who want to create or sustain high performing teams.

In five jam-packed chapters, and with clarity, simplicity and candor, Worrall teaches corporate leaders how to create a culture of accountability within their organizations. She also reminds us of the often disastrous consequences of failing to do so.
