The Responsibility Process: Unlocking Your Natural Ability to Live and Lead with Power
Christopher Avery believes all leadership depends on self-leadership, an innate capability that can be accessed and developed in everyone. He supports leaders and coaches in discovering a better and more productive way to live and lead while generating freedom, power, and choice. This is possible with The Responsibility Process, a seemingly simple yet astounding pattern in our minds we use to stay stuck or propel ourselves forward. Christopher is the author of Teamwork Is An Individual Skill (Berrett-Koehler, 2001) for everyone who wants to be done with bad teams. The Responsibility Process: Unlocking Your Natural Ability to Live and Lead with Power (Partnerwerks, 2016) details the astonishing gap between being a responsible person and taking 100% responsibility.
He is the host and master teacher for The Leadership Gift Program and CEO of the consulting firm Partnerwerks., Inc. For the time being Christopher and his wife Amy live in Comfort, TX.
