Your leadership success and quality of life are in direct proportion to the level of ownership your people take for achievement.
This book (coming in December 2013) shares the key leadership mindsets and habits that create a culture of ownership. It begins with a leader’s personal ownership. Second, it’s about enabling personal ownership in others. Third, it’s about enabling team ownership. Why? Because you want your people to not just do their job, but also to own the achievement (the outcomes).
Get more ownership, commitment and achievement from your team, whether they are located across the hall or across the world.
