The Accountable Leader Summary

The Accountable Leader: Developing Effective Leadership Through Managerial Accountability by Brian Dive

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.

The Accountable Leader Reviews

'The book is well illustrated with examples from the UK and overseas, ranging from Citibank to Tesco, Unilever to Procter & Gamble. They all demonstrate the wisdom of Dive's central message: that in leadership and HR, context is critical. This book should really help you to diagnose and add value in your own context.' People Management "Dive believes that, while managers are under constant pressure to achieve 'maximum performance', many of them do not have jobs with clear or real accountabilities. Dive gets full marks for spotting this.' Human Capital Management 'getAbstract recommends Brian Dive's practical approach to developing a framework that lets your leaders lead.' getAbstract
