PPP 213 | How to Help You and Your Team Stop Blaming and Start Taking Responsibility, with author Christopher Avery

Total Duration 55:55

Download episode 213

Taking Responsibility

Think back over the last week or so, when something went wrong. Maybe you had a team member or other stakeholder who dropped the ball. They were supposed to deliver and they didn’t and now it's impacting your project. Or something didn't go well in a meeting you were running--perhaps there was a problem with the A/V or the video conferencing system. Or something at home. Something went wrong--different from what you wanted and expected. And you are not happy. What's your first response? Our guest today says that, for most people, the response is predictable: lay blame.

In this episode, I'm joined by Christopher Avery, author of a The Responsibility Process: Unlocking Your Natural Ability to Live and Lead with Power, and I'm excited to introduce you to some ideas in the book.
