Accountability can and should be a positive experience! This book shows you how. Accountability is within your control – with positive psychology and the right actions.

5 Actions of Positive Accountability will help transform you and your culture by showing you proven, positive, behavioral-science- based techniques to set fair expectations, minimize unsatisfactory performance, and deal constructively with consequences. You will learn how to be a highly effective leader or individual contributor, while achieving peak results through positive accountability.

Based on their research and study as organizational scientists, and their experience as organizational consultants, the authors have identified the five essential steps in a positive accountability process: the 5 Actions of Positive Accountability.
