Lead & Influence: Get More Ownership, Commitment, and Achievement from Your Team
by Mark Fritz
Lead & Influence is about the power of ownership and why taking ownership is crucial to becoming a more successful leader. Clear and empowering, Mark Fritz’s book explains exactly how to implement ownership:
- Firstly, you must establish your own personal ownership.
- Secondly, strive to enable ownership in others.
- Finally, focus on enabling ownership within your team and organisation.
The author believes that taking ownership as a business leader leads to better accountability – and, crucially, engenders a culture of ownership among staff. As he says: “When was the last time you washed a rental car? Probably never, because you don’t own it.”
