Overview

"Whether you admit it or not, you are accountable for everything you're involved with, whether it turns out good or bad. The outcome belongs to everyone who touched the project, not just to the ones who made mistakes."
—From the Introduction

In today's uncertain world, the concept of accountability has taken center stage as a vital business concern. Yet the notion of accountability is all too often confused with punishment, fault-finding, blame, and guilt. In The 85% Solution, author Linda Galindo shows that the only true accountability is "personal accountability" and reveals that the only way to achieve it is to be responsible for the outcomes of your choices, behaviors, and actions.

Filled with self-assessments, this book will encourage you to take the needed risk-taking actions to reach your goals and get you what you want. Galindo explains that you must become willing to answer for the outcomes that result from your choices and actions. By taking the three important steps outlined—be responsible for the success or failure of everything you do, empower yourself to succeed, and be accountable for your actions—you will have the keys to taking control of your own success.

Once we are able to accept no less than 85% of the responsibility for the outcomes of our actions, we will enjoy a happier and more productive life. This is the 85% Solution.
