5.0 out of 5 stars A Five Star book--a must read!
April 26, 2017
'Own It' is an easy read sprinkled with ah-ha moments throughout the book. The passion from which the author writes is evident on every page. This is truly an active participation book with key coaching questions asked throughout the book--designed for you to write your thoughts as well as a personal action plan—working right along with the author! I found the personal coach inventory enlightening regarding my own behaviors. Once you realize that certain behaviors may be toxic, helpful antidotes are suggested as a guide.
This book very much was a personal journey for me, and as an educator for our company will definitely suggest this book as a model on accountability to build upon.
This book left me excited ...now onward to focus on being my best version of me
Definitely a fan!!!

Following up on her successful book “Take the Lead Full Throttle Engagement Powered by Coaching, Leta Beam again gives us the tools to create a culture of accountability by leading from our seats. This is a must read for all leaders in organizations who struggle to gain full accountability by all members of their team. The model she introduces in the beginning of creating a culture of owners not renters really captures the true meaning of accountability by all. Her description of the meaning of accountability and the elegant tools to assess accountability within an organization really build on the lessons from her first book. The simple guides such as the Accountability Compass, the Accountability Credo, and table of the Do’s and Don’ts that are the gentle reminders of how to achieve accountability.

This book provides an alternative to the traditional method of operating modern offices, where office politics dominate and stagnation is tolerated and rewarded. The book shows what you can do as an individual, regardless of whether those around you cooperate. This book is a starting point for improving office relationships, productivity and job satisfaction for those that genuinely work to achieve those things.
