Research has shown that people are more likely to achieve their goals when they've included someone along the way. Accountability partners or groups, as we refer to them, are individuals who hold you accountable for the goals you have set for yourself. So what does this really mean?
When done right, accountability partners provide encouragement, support, and motivation to help you keep things moving. Here are four things for you to consider:
- Accountability: Having a trusted individual or group who will call you out increases your chances of accomplishing your goals.
- Support and encouragement: Friendly nudges, fresh ideas, and support are just a few of the benefits!
- Like-minded folks: Meeting with an individual or a group that aspires to the same level of accomplishment and accountability raises the bar for yourself and for everyone else.
- Predictability: Meet quarterly to check in, with a consistent agenda, to stay on track and accountable.
We have found accountability partners to be an extremely powerful tool in our busy worlds. Plus, this concept is a relatively simple to get started. Make a few calls and get started!
