Early in the Minnesota Twins 2009 exhibition season, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire discovered a note on his desk from Justin Morneau, his star first baseman. It read: “Gardy: I forgot to run sprints after the workouts yesterday; I am fining myself.” Next to the note was a hundred-dollar bill.
Entrepreneur, author, and speaker Sam Silverstein asks: Is Justin Morneau accountable because he's a superstar or is he a superstar because he's accountable?
In No More Excuses, Silverstein identifies the Five Accountabilities shared by all truly successful people and organizations.
• Shows why accountability gives businesses and individuals the competitive edge
• How to instill accountability throughout the enterprise
• How the Five Accountabilities can support both values and strategic intent.
• Includes interviews with 50 carefully chosen Accountability Masters from six continents and all walks of life—including academics, Fortune 500 CEOs, and Hall of Fame athletes.
