The Accountable Leader is centred around three themes - leadership, accountability and organizational structure, and explores what it means for managers to be held to account at all levels in an organization. It will show that most leadership related problems arise from the ineffectiveness of organisational structures that lack accountable jobs.

Complete with case study material and international examples, The Accountable Leader brings home the importance of accountability as the necessary and robust platform for the assessment of potential leaders and leadership development - and demonstrates how clear accountability enables managers to achieve much more within their roles.

The Accountable Leader was prestigiously voted one of 'The Thirty Best Business Books of 2008' by Soundview Executive Book Summaries, USA.
