How do you feel about social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter? Are they a good thing?
I am still experimenting with various social media applications. Twitter and Facebook are great for building a following quickly and getting a brief message out to a lot of people. They work well in free promotions and competitions. Facebook can have a lot of fans, but Linked In still trumps them all for the volume and quality of professional business interactions and comments.
If you could do any job in the world what would you do?
What I’m doing now – running my own businesses in Consulting and Publishing – but on a much bigger scale. I am inspired by those who have turned their writing into an information publishing business like the Chicken Soup for the Soul empire; or the Brendon Burchard Experts Academy
What are you most passionate about? What gets you fired up?
New projects
What’s your next project?
1. Accountability Leadership – my current title converted to paperback and audio
2. The Accountability Workbook on kindle and in paperback with a software application
What would you love to produce in your life?
A succession of business titles that people love, and are inspired to take action
What’s the reason for your life? Have you figured out your reason for being here yet?
To leave a legacy which has helped the greatest number of people go out and get what they want; achieve a better result; break through a barrier; or reach a different level using my writing, speaking, coaching and business talents.
How do you feel about self-publishing?
Better than the alternative. I prefer managing my own interests.

Accountability Leadership Saves Tech Company
In 2005, HCL Technologies was in trouble.
The Delhi-based IT firm was losing market share, as competitors grew by 50% annually.
By 2009, HCL’s president, Vineet Nayar had turned the company around, nearly tripling annual revenues and doubling market capitalisation despite the recession.
Nayar accomplished all this through a top-down culture of accountability, beginning with the leadership qualities of himself—the CEO—and other senior managers.
The Rules Of Accountability Have Changed
Great business leaders understand that acceptance of greater personal accountability and responsibility leads organisations back on the path to success.
But with the evolving nature of 21st century business, the practical steps that go into creating a high performance culture of accountability have become more muddled than ever.
Many organisations have seen temporary improvements, implementing traditional systems of accountability in an attempt to drive high performance in the workplace—only to quickly revert back to their old ways, or worse.
Accountability Leadership Will Teach You:
  • What it really takes to lead a high performance culture of accountability
  • Why so many of today’s employees avoid personal accountability and responsibility like the plague, and how to reverse that trend
  • How to sustain great performance through inspiring feedback, feed-forward and follow-through
  • What an accountability plan is, how to create one, and why it’s considered the “secret weapon” behind successful business transformation
Filled with real world case studies and straightforward, easy to digest research, Accountability Leadership offers practical solutions that are direct, engaging, fast, cost-effective, proven, and easy to implement...
Immediate, Concrete Solutions You’ll Take Away From This Book Include:
  • How to transform the “dark side” of accountability into a positive force for change
  • Why carrots and sticks no longer work—and what they’ve been replaced with
  • How to create compelling consequences that inspire people to perform at their best, and achieve the ultra productive workstate known as “flow”
  • Crack the code of high accountability conversations, turning confrontation into a productive and positive opportunity
Accountability Leadership Also Sheds Light On Topics Like...
  • How negativity bias covertly sabotages your feedback loop with your employees
  • The optimal ratio for positive to negative comments in feedback
  • The right amount of autonomy to give employees—without overdoing it
  • What lack of recognition is really doing to your workforce (hint: it’s staggering)
  • The surprising biochemical effect of praise, and why it cannot fail
