In this month’s blog I spoke of the importance of personal integrity. So it is only fitting that this month’s book review speak to the topic by way of personal accountability. In "Making Yourself Indispensable: The Power of Personal Accountability", Mark Samuel identifies the choices and behaviors required to truly be accountable people and by definition, self-leaders.
The heart of the book in my mind is not only identifying accountability as a choice, but creating a model in which we see the consequences of our choices. Essentially, in any given situation, we face two choices based on our intention within the given situation. One set of choices takes us to personal accountability while the other set of choices take us down the road to being a victim. Either which way, the choice is ours!
Enjoy the Book!
