Authority in how personal responsibility operates in the minds of leaders -- and the only "how-to" approach for taking, teaching, and inspiring personal responsibility.

As the world's leading expert on how personal responsibility works in our minds, (how we both avoid and take responsibility for our lives, work, and relationships), Christopher offers the world's only "how-to" approach for taking, teaching, and inspiring personal responsibility. This information is changing how people live better lives; how leaders lead; how teams get built; and how teachers, coaches, and parents worldwide teach personal responsibility to their charges.

He wrote the popular book Teamwork Is An Individual Skill for everyone at work who thinks they must put up with bad teams.
