The Responsibility Process: Unlocking Your Natural Ability to LIVE and LEAD with POWER
FREEDOM, POWER, and CHOICE
Leadership is innate. The Responsibility Process proves it.
The Responsibility Process is a natural mental pattern that helps you process thoughts about taking or avoiding responsibility. How you navigate it determines whether you are leading toward meaningful results or just marking time. This book gives you precision tools, practices, and leadership truths to navigate The Responsibility Process and lead yourself and others to freedom, power, and choice.
This book is a great self-study introduction to The Respo0nsibility Process, so it’s a great starting point for people who don’t have time to join a course and who learn well by reading.
Joe Thomas says:
Avery explains why being responsible is vastly different than taking responsibility. Being responsible is living up to cultural norms and expectations while taking responsibility is owning everything about your life!
Avery is the first author I’ve found that makes a meaningful leadership distinction between accountability and responsibility. Avery uses the roots of these two words to explain the difference. And leadership is all about making distinctions in the minds of people!
Oluf Nissen says:
I’ve been waiting for Christopher Avery to write this book ever since I learned about The Responsibility Process through my Agile software development education and journey.
To me, the heart of the book is in the “Catch Yourself Sooner” game, and in the reminder that we need to forgive ourselves for being human and having the process triggered when we meet an “upset”.
The ideas in this book will most likely resonate with everyone who reads it. The advice is actionable and easy to understand. Practicing the advice, on the other hand will probably take a lot of introspection and habit changes.
Stepping into the belief that we are free, powerful and at choice can seem daunting, but this book will show you how it might be possible for you to get there through self-awareness, practice, self-forgiveness and discipline.
