One of the Ten Commandments of Lovable Leadership is to ALWAYS take full accountability.
If you want to be a leader, you have to step up, and that means taking on MORE responsibility, not LESS. You are not only responsible for your work, but for everyone that reports to you. If they fail, it is partly a failure of leadership. If you adopt the alternative mindset, you have no power to affect change, only to blame.
This book does an excellent job of blending storytelling and leadership lessons into one great book.
