The best-selling authors of The Oz Principle return with a time-tested guide for achieving more in life. 

Since 1994, New York Times best seller The Oz Principle has been the bible of business accountability, helping countless companies build dynamic, creative workplaces. Now Roger Connors and Tom Smith show readers how to use accountability to strengthen personal relationships, inspire and motivate their children, increase their value on the job, improve their health and financial well-being, and attain every other major goal.

Those four steps to accountability can transform anyone from a blame-game playing victim to a world-class success.

Before you buy another time management tool(self help book, app for smart phone, ect.) read this book

Many of the principles shared we know! The book challenges one to practice , practice, practice.

It's easy to follow, understand and relevant.

good reminder on having integrity.powerful message

listened a few times. there were parts that cited cruel animal experiments to illustrate points. that was sickening to me and I wish they had other ways to have illustrated the valid point they were making. so except for that I totally appreciated this book .

Love this book!!

This is a wonderful listen for those who want get personal accountability, and get "above the line". The Oz Priciples are straight forward and easy to remember, and the authors make this book relatable to everyday people. I highly recommend this book!

it would be better to just read the Oz principle

first, let me just say I enjoyed the Oz principle. I think the authors present a good methodology for inspiring leadership and accountability. this book is like the CliffsNotes version. while this would be worthwhile for someone with not a lot of time to read or to give to an employee, a leader would be better served going back to the original Oz principle.the Oz principle takes more time to develop the thoughts provide more background or what leaders need to understand before they just see it own it solve it and do it. another thing I didn't like about this audio book is that parts of it are read by the author or authors. The reason I like to listen to audiobooks is because the narrator's generally have the right tone and measurement to read the stories in an engaging way. I was distracted in this book by the author's voice. what probably caught me off-guard is I listen to a lot of audiobooks and the male voice is generally have the same quality and characteristics. hearing the author's voice was markedly different than the usual audiobook and I found myself distracted from the message. bottom line, if you only can read one book then read this book. but if you have more time, go back to the original Oz principle.
