Accountability can be a game changer for you and your organization.
Now, more than ever, we need accountability at all levels in our organizations, communities, and personal lives as we create not just a new normal but a better normal.
Professionally and personally, I longed for a book focused on the skills, strategies and tactics needed to create accountability at all levels in an organization—and in the leaders that run them.
Although I found interesting and useful books, I didn’t find the book I thought was needed.
Then came the pandemic. I saw employers and managers stumble, and employees’ lives crash. The questions that came into my inbox for my weekly “dear Abby of the workplace” newspaper column asked “What now? Where do we go from here? How do we make this better?”
I started writing Managing for Accountability: A Business Leader’s Toolbox. Here’s what one of the book’s reviewers wrote.
“Lynne Curry writes about a topic she has lived with, taught on, and written about every day for many years. In her trainings, I have experienced the depth of her understanding when it comes to people and their relationships to their work. The advice column she produces rivals Dear Abby, except that they are aimed directly at the workplace and how to improve the work environment. I have enormous respect for Curry’s advice on how to make for a better, happier, more productive workforce.” Mike Coumbe, Deputy Director, Alaska Conservation Foundation
Managing for Accountability gives you a roadmap for creating a better normal. The tools presented form the basis for creating an outstanding workplace organization one employee at a time. Accountability delivers tangible employee and organization-changing outcomes.
Also, several book reviewers said, “This book shook me to the core as a leader—in a good way. It made me reflect on whether I’ve truly stepped to the plate as much as I needed to and could to create a better future.”
To make the book useful, I kept my blog and newspaper column’s writing style. As Stacy Laackmann, SPHR, Human Resources Director, Northern Valley Health, Inc. said,
“Lynne Curry’s writing style is refreshing and easy to read. HR theory books and other self-help books are often written in a tone that is a bit too optimistic and leaves landmines for readers to be discovered as they attempt to implement the strategies. Curry doesn’t do that, and instead lays a great foundation for the learning the good, the bad, and the ugly of what accountability is and is not and how to be successful when fostering it. I can’t wait to share Managing for Accountability: A Business Leader’s Toolbox with my leaders.”
I’d love you to take this book’s journey into accountability with me. The publisher has given me this coupon for those who pre-order this book due out in August/September.
