Inspiring accountability in the workplace, driving employee engagement, and getting people to step up and take more ownership of their role in your organization is often easier said than done. Good Authority author Jonathan Raymond says it’s because we’re using outdated assumptions and he has a radically simple way to help you turn things around.


  • What to do when you feel like you “just can’t find good people.”
  • How to let go of the emotional responsibility that “nobody cares about the business as much as you do.”
  • The 2 workforce trends that demand a new approach to build accountability in the workplace. 
  • The 2 non-negotiable steps you must take to transform your business culture into one that nurtures accountability in the workplace.
  • The counter-intuitive role vulnerability plays in strengthening accountability in the workplace.
  • What “good authority” means in the context of business leadership.
  • And MUCH more.


Jonathan Raymond helps leadership and management teams change the way they talk with their team so that everybody wins. He’s the owner of Refound, an advisory firm that offers accountability skills training programs for owners, executives, and managers.

Jonathan says we've had fifty years of business coaching and it has done zilch to improve employee engagement numbers. In fact, they've gotten worse, not better, over time. He claims it's because the world of work has evolved beyond the philosophical models that traditional tools are based on.

Earlier in his career, Jonathan served as the CEO and Chief Brand Officer of EMyth. Yes, its the coaching company associated with the E-Myth books by Michael Gerber. While at EMyth, he led the transformation of their global coaching brand. He also worked in tech, clean tech, and the nonprofit world after graduating law school in 1998.

Jonathan lives in Ashland, Oregon, a lovely town that’s too far away from a warm ocean. He’s madly in love with his wife, tries not to spoil his daughter, and will never give up on the New York Knicks.

Best of all, Jonathan recently channeled his enthusiasm for accountability in the workplace into a new book called Good Authority: How to Become the Leader Your Team is Waiting For.
