"... The wrongs of Watergate, Penn State, Enron, WorldCom and Tyco all started at the top. That's precisely where organizational culture finds its roots. People look to leaders to set the tone..."What's the Fix?" The authors cite the following as a leader's accountability behavior: Always tell the truth. Do what you say you'll do. Provide honest feedback to whoever needs to hear it. Fess up to your mistakes. Don't make excuses, or let others make them. Don't dodge issues; deal with them quickly..." - Jim Pawlak, Biz Books Columnist, Dallas Morning News"It was so refreshing to see a business-oriented, yet completely life-related, book on accountability...The authors make it clear that accountability is not the easy road but that it is the more worthwhile road to take. They also make it very clear that people in positions of leadership need to illustrate the principles they outline in their book. I agree wholeheartedly with their conclusions, and I applaud them for teaching accountability to their business clients (and for writing this book)." - Kandy Williams -New Consciousness Review
