Then again… do not just read it, apply every single principle to your daily operation. Heck you can even tie into your company credo.  I’ll telling you, the nuggets dropped in this book will not only enlighten you, but it’s a great leadership guide to getting the job done with no excuses.

Here is the kicker… you will feel convicted. I know I did! We all conjure up ridiculous excuses as to why something wasn’t done, why a project deadline lapsed, or just why we just didn’t start in the first place. All excuses! Leadership strategist and now author, Tracie L. James sugar coat at all. Her dynamic and vivid illustrations are blunt, clear-cut and in your face. It’s truly a lesson in having “A Get-It Done System.”



Tracie L. James is a leadership strategist, business coach and speaker. She is passionate about helping leaders hit all their goals all the time. She’s on a mission to eliminate excuse laden cultures. 



James targets the many issues why we feel like we cannot accomplish goals and then uses them against us to show us our error in mindset. She calls us out for our excuses and accepting the excuses of others… like our employees.

Excuse Proof Leadership focuses on “Building a High-Performance Team” with visible successful tips that include:

  • Leading by example
  • “Define Everything in Writing”
  • Delegating and;
  • Not Settling

Sounds kind of like it, but this has nothing to do with you current relationship (shade). However, these key strategies work hand-in-hand to help you develop a higher performance team.  Remember, it starts with you so lead by example!

Before you ask, yes I read it – cover-to-cover. Excuse Proof Leadership is brilliant and refreshing. No complex formulas just simplistic straight talk on what to do and not what to; and especially what not to accept.  After reading for myself, and taking action to be an “excuse proof” entrepreneur, I have already accomplished far more within the past month than previously planned. I told you it convicts you to do more.
