Mark Samuel on the Power of an Accountable Organization

September 7, 2012

The best corporate leaders never point out the window to blame external conditions; they look in the mirror and say, “We are responsible for our results!” — Jim Collins

Baseball teams don’t practice between games based on whether they won or lost their last game. Music groups don’t rehearse based on the number of people they want to sell tickets to. They practice and rehearse their performance execution, which is what they are completely accountable for. In an accountable organization, there is a spirit of cooperation and drive to be successful. People respect each other and challenge each other in a supportive way to attain the highest levels of personal and team performance.


Join Mark Samuel as he presents Unleash the Power of an Accountable Organization as a part our Thought Leader Series on November 14.
