FORT WORTH, Texas, April 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Matthew Brandt (https://www.accountabilitycop.com/) recently announced the release of his new book, written to help leaders of all kinds develop the skills they need to lead teams, companies, organizations and individuals. "Accountability in an Unaccountable World: Where Have All the Leaders Gone!" explains Brandt's signature three-point leadership principle, Authority=Action=Accountability, which was fine-tuned over his 30-year career. Brandt's book is currently available for purchase at Amazon.com.
Synopsis: As a new supervisor, or even as a seasoned leader, understanding the scope of one's authority and how to leverage that authority into decisive and appropriate action is what ensures both positive accountability and behavioral changes throughout an organization. Beginning in the early 1980s, Matthew Brandt was a member of the elite U.S. Navy Ceremonial Guard and served inside the Reagan White House. While there, Brandt listened, learned and absorbed the knowledge needed to begin a career that has subsequently led him through decades serving as a street cop, a robbery/homicide detective, and later into the highest ranks of federal law enforcement. Brandt has transformed those experiences into an actionable set of principles that can be used to promote positive accountability and enhance leadership skills anywhere; whether it be in the boardroom, a town council meeting or within the leadership of a non-profit organization.
"The First Lady taught me the true meaning of accountability," Brandt said, recalling the most powerful turning point in his early career that occurred one evening in the White House. While performing his duties at a state dinner in 1984, standing next to President Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan, state guests Phyllis Diller and Dom DeLuise tried to get Brandt to break his military discipline by laughing and pulling his neck tie. The First Lady stepped up and intervened, putting herself between the sailor and the comedians, and said "Not tonight. Not in the White House."
