How Can You, Your Team, and Your Organization Excel and Achieve What Matters Most?
As business, technology, and society itself continue to evolve at an ever more rapid pace, we are often confounded by the no–rules business environment, where the fast, flexible and agile will eat and spit out the slow, over–thinking and complacent. Achieve with Accountability takes an engaging narrative approach through stories that teach how to unleash your individual, team′s, and organization′s optimal performance.
"Achieve with Accountability focuses on the principle that fits hand and glove with what I have spent most of my career teaching in the time and life management field, and that is the mindset of owning your life, owning your mistakes, owning your goals and owning your choices Mike claims that you can ′transform accountability into a positive experience that can catapult your team and business to new heights, and achieve what matters most′, and he is absolutely right."
HYRUM SMITH, co–founder, FranklinCovey and co–founder, 3Gaps
"A great read for anyone who wants to push the boundaries of personal, team or organizational performance. Mike demystifies accountability in a way that lowers the barriers to achievement."
ALAN FINE, bestselling author of You Already Know How To Be Great and Founder/President of InsideOut Development LLC
"During the many years, I′ve known Mike Evans, I have found him to be a real ′cut to the chase and let′s make it simple′ sort of a fellow. The groundbreaking work in this book clearly illustrates that point. In it, Evans dissects optimum human performance to its very foundation of accountability. For without it, there is only poor performance, sub–optimal performance or literally no performance at all. There is truly no ′reason to be′. Mike provides the reader with a prescription for optimal individual, team and organizational performance."
AL ADAMS, Former Executive Vice President, Tom Peters Company
"This work brings to life Mike′s depth of understanding and work with organizations and the people who comprise them. A masterful leader and change agent, Mike unravels ′accountability,′ through insight, questioning, and execution models leading to high performance. A must read for those who want to excel and keep their organizations competitive."
PHYLLIS MOORE, Former Senior Vice President, Kotter International
