The 5 Summits of Winning
Can accountability be harnessed to drive corporate success?
“Winning” is what we want to have achieved when the results of our actions are held up for all to see.
Sometimes it’s an individual win.
Sometimes it’s a team win.
But always it means the legitimate competition could not keep up.
And always it means coming to grips with personal accountability.
In business, “winning” means climbing a mountain range of five summits, five levels of accountability, and each summit is more challenging than its predecessor.
When we’ve reached the top of the fifth summit we can claim to be truly world class in our profession—as individuals, leaders, teams, departments, or corporations.
However, for that to happen, each summit must be mastered before moving on to the next.
And each summit is itself a challenge. Mastering each individual summit is truly a win in itself.
Every person and every team should aspire to master each summit. Every leader should aspire to lead their teams to that mastery.
