From the Inside Flap
New York Times bestselling authors Brian P. Moran and Michael Lennington’s first book The 12 Week Year transformed the way organizations plan and execute. And now they’ve done it again.
In Uncommon Accountability, Brian and Michael deliver a thought-provoking and eye-opening exploration of what it means to be truly accountable, to oneself and to others. They make a powerful case that “accountability” means the personal ownership of one’s goals, actions, and progress.
The authors demonstrate how to harness the power of accountability―with its built-in potential to enable growth and learning, improve well-being, reduce stress, and drive results―by guiding readers through the process of taking personal ownership and changing their circumstances.
The book shows leaders how to stop managing by negative consequence through “holding others accountable”―in the negative sense of that phrase―and, instead, “hold others capable.” It clarifies and proves that personal choice exists in all interactions and situations and shows readers how to shift from a mindset of “I have to” to “I chose to.”
From the shift in thinking necessary to take true advantage of the concepts of accountability and ownership, to the behavior changes leaders need to make to unlock the potential of true accountability, the authors discuss essential strategies and techniques for improving results and engagement at any organization.
Based upon decades of work with thousands of clients, they provide proven guidance to actually apply the concepts in the book for yourself and for those you lead. Uncommon Accountability is an indispensable resource for managers, executives, and other business leaders seeking to reveal the true capabilities of their followers, colleagues, and coworkers.

Accountability isn’t about the use of force, it’s about freedom. The freedom to choose your actions. The freedom to pursue what matters most to you in life.
