There’s an African proverb that says, “I take no joy that the hole is in your end of the boat.”

Is everyone in your boat unified around your mission, vision, and values? Clarity creates confidence.
How much more successful can you be if everyone is crystal clear about what’s expected of them to achieve the success you say you want?
To dive even deeper into the topic of accountability, I invite you to purchase a copy of my bestselling book, “Accountability: The Key to Driving a High-Performance Culture.”
Business schools teach case studies. Hollywood blockbusters are inspired by true events.
Exceptional leaders are students of history. Decision-making comes with the territory.
