I Am Accountable

It’s time to show excuses the door. Whether at work or at home, people often make excuses out of over-commitment, lack of understanding, or poor time management. In a world where there are more resources available than ever before – it’s time to get to the bottom line. Ultimately, they make excuses by focusing on what they cannot control instead of focusing on what they can control.

As the founder of the Accountability Movement™, Sam brilliantly lays out the relationship between what we value and what we can control and illuminates the strategies, mindsets, and tools necessary to eliminate excuses from our personal and professional lives. Accountability is a way of thinking. It is how we think about ourselves and others.

  • Discover your foundational, relational, professional and community values
  • Connect your values to the art of living an accountable life
  • Improve your relationships through keeping commitments
  • Eliminate excuses that hold you back from their potential


The Accountable Leader's Guide to Change

Change is an integral part of our world. The ability to get ahead of it, manage it, or initiate it for any organization falls squarely on the shoulders of leadership. Focusing on what people do won’t cut it anymore. Truly accountable leaders instead turn their focus on changing the way people THINK.

Sam brings audiences together to best understand what a powerful catalyst change can be for positively growing business, redefining relationships, and letting go of the status quo. Leaders who meet change head on and make it their partner, drive momentum and deliver results.

  • Identify the “Change Categories” all people fall into and how to motivate each person successfully
