General Note "This book is a companion to 'Crucial conversations: tools for talking when stakes are high' ... Crucial conversations deal with high-stakes interactions where emotions run strong and opinions vary. Crucial accountability deals with a subset of these interactions. After parties have come to a common understanding and assignments have been made - meaning things are on course - someone fails to complete his or her assignment. All accountability conversations start with the question 'Why didn't you keep your commitment?' And they end, not merely a solution is reached, but when it's done in such a manner that both parties are able to comply and the relationship is strengthened." - p. xvii.
First edition published as "Crucial confrontations".
Bibliography Note Includes bibliographical references and index.

Summary Note "Broken promises, missed deadlines, poor behaviour - they don’t just make others’ lives miserable; they can sap up to 50 percent of organizational performance and account for the vast majority of divorces.
