Accountability is arguably the number-one issue that makes or breaks leadership performance today. Yet most of us were never taught this critical skill;not by our parents, teachers or business leaders.

The good news is, accountability can be coached.

About the Author

Di Worrall is an award-winning business transformation executive, change management consultant, and executive coach to the world's most senior business leaders. She is also a multi award-winning author and leading voice in the global movement of organisational change. Over the course of her career, she's developed a personal and professional mantra about what she sees as the number-one issue that makes or breaks leadership performance today... Accountability for outcomes, performance, and results. That mantra goes like this: "The degree to which you have developed the capacity to hold your organisation and its people accountable for the delivery of results is directly proportional to your capacity to either build--or hemorrhage--value from your organisation." ...An Early Accountability Lesson Becomes a Catalyst for Change In her first senior executive post, Di managed to turn a difficult accountability lesson into an opportunity for change when it became clear that the failure of her executive team to hold one another accountable was setting their entire organisation up to fail on its delivery of a major business initiative. Having no intention of letting the project go bad, Di led her fellow executives through specific actions to improve personal accountability throughout the leadership team. As a result, she managed to turn a pending loss into a remarkable profit. "Accountability was something we couldn't delegate," she says, recalling the initiative. "Much to our surprise, employees in our respective divisions started to intuitively follow suit, modelling our new behaviours." Inspired by that early experience, Di developed a deep curiosity and drive to understand the "new science" of high accountability. This led her to create the best-seller, Accountability Leadership - the first title in "The Accountability Code TM" series of books, workshops and information products. ...Extensive Experience and Expertise With over 20 years' experience leading programs of business strategy, business transformation, organisational change and strategic human resources at the enterprise level, Di's professional background and knowledge spans a range of industries--public and private--both in Australia and abroad. These include: - More than 10 years as senior executive and group director of large government and private multinationals; - Over 10 years working with senior leaders as principal of business transformation consultancy, Worrall and Associates.
