Summary : From the world’s leading experts on workplace accountability comes the most comprehensive study on the subject, revealing the cure that could fix low employee engagement in the workplace once and for all One factor, more than any other, causes the problems business leaders fear most. Lackluster performance, sinking profits, and unmet stockholder expectations all stem from one source: a massive decline in em­ployee engagement. Rather than blaming employees themselves for the decline, however, the Workplace Accountability Study reveals how to fix it: the secret lies with those who lead and manage our organiza­tions. To inspire employees to be fully engaged, men­tally and emotionally, in their work, leaders must first and foremost fix accountability—in themselves, their teams, and the entire enterprise. But how? To answer that question, Roger Con­nors and Tom Smith—cofounders of Partners In Leadership, the Accountability Training and Culture Change Company, and the authors of the New York Times bestseller The Oz Principle, the definitive bible on workplace accountability—have joined forces with three expert field practitioners. The resulting book not only presents eye-opening insights drawn from the authors’ three-year, first-of-its-kind Workplace Accountability Study, it also offers 240 proven solu­tions advanced by 120 successful leaders interviewed exclusively for this book. Their combined wisdom can help you solve every conceivable accountability prob­lem, whenever and wherever it pops up. Since one size does not fit all in today’s chal­lenging business environment, this official sequel to The Oz Principle provides an innovative, self-directed journey into accountability that enables you to tailor solutions to your own unique situation. Fix It tack­les the 16 Accountability Traits consistently found in highly accountable, effective people, teams, and organizations, and it guides you to the ones you need to fix right now. You will design your personally tailored path through the book: 1. In Part 1, you create your Fix It Bucket List by taking the three-minute Fix It Assessment. 2. In Part 2, you spend fifteen minutes reading about the Accountability Trait in question. 3. In Part 3, you explore several tried-and-true solu­tions that will work for you, your team, or your entire organization. Fix It is destined to become an indispensable leadership and management resource for resolving any pressing problem in your organization. Whatever you need, from more accountability and ownership to greater engage­ment and leadership, this book will help you get the results you need. For more information, visit: www.fixit-book.com

Summary : A step-by-step guide to supercharging the coaching culture inside your organization, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Oz Principle and The Wisdom of Oz. Coaching is the most effective method for boosting human performance. Studies shows that it increases productivity by 88%. Coaching, however, has become increasingly exclusive due to the high costs of external coaches. Managers, responsible for coaching the people on their teams, are overburdened by an ever-increasing span of control with little time to coach. The solution: extend coaching to the masses, so that everyone, at every level in the organization, can get the coaching they need, when they need it. A fresh take on a traditional model, Get a Coach, Be a Coach combines decades of first-hand experience with real-life stories and practical exercises. Drawing on over 30 years of advising senior management all over the world, authors Roger Connors, Jeff Adcock, Kelly Andrews, and Seth Connors offer a bottoms-up strategy: Self-Directed Performance Coaching. Unlike most coaching styles, this innovative approach puts the Learner, not the Coach, in charge of the learner-coach relationship. Self-Directed Performance Coaching is for anyone, from brand-new hires and middle managers to senior leaders and C-level executives, who seeks to boost performance. All you have to do is: - Identify your Most Important Thing, whether it's that pitch you want to deliver or client you want to impress, - Find a Coach who's a Level Up, or someone who has already acquired the skills and experience you need, - Coach your Coach, or guide your coaching relationship to meet your specific learning needs, and - Be a Coach, and share your newfound expertise with the next generation of Learners. This book is for all who want to create a thriving coaching culture within their organization.

The authors first introduced this powerful accountability philosophy in the New York Times bestseller The Oz Principle. Since then, millions have come to know them as “The Oz Guys” and they have gone on to help leaders all over the world teach and apply the principles you’re about to learn.

You will learn the traits that allowed a college senior who landed flat on her face in a 600-meter race to jump up and win. Or a thirteen-year-old soccer player who moved from the bench to the starting lineup. You will discover that while no one will ever wave a wizard’s wand and magically solve all your problems, there is a way to experience the near magical impact of personal accountability.

Summary : “Dazzling and instructive . . . [a] magisterial new book.” —Walter Isaacson, Time Henry Kissinger offers in World Order a deep meditation on the roots of international harmony and global disorder. Drawing on his experience as one of the foremost statesmen of the modern era—advising presidents, traveling the world, observing and shaping the central foreign policy events of recent decades—Kissinger now reveals his analysis of the ultimate challenge for the twenty-first century: how to build a shared international order in a world of divergent historical perspectives, violent conflict, proliferating technology, and ideological extremism. There has never been a true “world order,” Kissinger observes. For most of history, civilizations defined their own concepts of order. Each considered itself the center of the world and envisioned its distinct principles as universally relevant. China conceived of a global cultural hierarchy with the emperor at its pinnacle. In Europe, Rome imagined itself surrounded by barbarians; when Rome fragmented, European peoples refined a concept of an equilibrium of sovereign states and sought to export it across the world. Islam, in its early centuries, considered itself the world’s sole legitimate political unit, destined to expand indefinitely until the world was brought into harmony by religious principles. The United States was born of a conviction about the universal applicability of democracy—a conviction that has guided its policies ever since. Now international affairs take place on a global basis, and these historical concepts of world order are meeting. Every region participates in questions of high policy in every other, often instantaneously. Yet there is no consensus among the major actors about the rules and limits guiding this process or its ultimate destination. The result is mounting tension. Grounded in Kissinger’s deep study of history and his experience as national security advisor and secretary of state, World Order guides readers through crucial episodes in recent world history. Kissinger offers a unique glimpse into the inner deliberations of the Nixon administration’s negotiations with Hanoi over the end of the Vietnam War, as well as Ronald Reagan’s tense debates with Soviet Premier Gorbachev in Reykjavík. He offers compelling insights into the future of U.S.–China relations and the evolution of the European Union, and he examines lessons of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Taking readers from his analysis of nuclear negotiations with Iran through the West’s response to the Arab Spring and tensions with Russia over Ukraine, World Order anchors Kissinger’s historical analysis in the decisive events of our time. Provocative and articulate, blending historical insight with geopolitical prognostication, World Order is a unique work that could come only from a lifelong policy maker and diplomat. Kissinger is also the author of On China.
