Finished listening to this book on the drive in today. I am a big proponent of personal accountability and the idea that you can't change anyone but yourself. This book aligns with these ideas as it provides very specific ideas for how to accept responsibility for your results, take action and have impact by leading yourself and leading your team. Concise, well written, recommended for my fellow people-managers out there or anyone who is feeling frustrated with workplace drama! My only criticism is that the narration is quite robotic - listened on 1.5x speed and it was better.
