This episode is part three of the series of excerpts from the conclusion of the live course I taught in the summer of 2017 called, Open to Excellence. If you look at any persistent problem carefully enough, you will find a lack of responsibility, yet honest, curious conversations about responsibility and the lack thereof are few and far between. We live in a world of excuses and deflections. If you’re looking to make a change in your world, or manage someone who is, you need to understand irresponsibility inside and out: how to spot it, how to name it, where it comes from, and what you can do about it. That’s what this episode is about.
