How Much Of A Difference Will An Accountability Coach Make?
Choosing an accountability coach for your business.
Firstly, choosing an accountability coach for your business can take time and consideration. It is essential that you understand precisely what an accountability coach can and can not do for your business to be able to choose wisely. As we have previously described the qualities of a good accountability coach, here is a list of what an accountability coach can help your business achieve in terms of short-term and long-term goals.
A study* in the USA was undertaken and found out that the probability of completing a goal is:
- 10% – If you have an actual idea or goal.
- 25% – If you consciously decide you will do it.
- 40% – If you decide when you will do it.
- 50% – If you plan how you will do it.
- 65% – If you commit to someone, you will do it.
- 95% – If you have a specific accountability appointment with a person you’ve committed to.
After reading this, how likely are you to achieve your; goals, promises, obligations and commitments alone?
Secondly, a great Accountability Coach will provide you with:
The first and foremost benefit of having an accountability coach is the ability to generate more clarity. When you work with an accountability coach to list and examine your business’s strengths and weaknesses, you can pinpoint problem areas and the source of issues. This means that you get more clarity for what you need to do to achieve success and growth. This also gives you a sense of purpose and direction as you get to know what actions must be taken to fix critical issues. Issues that affecting your business and work environment.
The benefit of having an accountability coach helping you is that you can create a focused and concentrated strategy. Professional help dealing with shortcomings and aspects that require immediate attention. You get the ability to focus your energy and thoughts on coming up with solutions that best meet your needs and requirements. An accountability coach can also help you get the skillset and training you need. Furthermore, this can inspire direct action by your staff and employees. Action to address emerging issues and matters that require due attention.
The job of an accountability coach is not to run your business, but to get you the skills and tools you need to be able to manage your business and work effectively. With the experience you get by strategizing, planning, and prioritising, you can create better management methods and principles that can be successfully applied to any aspect of your work or business. This benefits your company in the short-term and has enormous benefits for future growth and expansion.
By streamlining your workflow, teaching yourself and your staff to take responsibility, and creating an environment where accountability is encouraged, accountability coaches can help you increase productivity and a positive attitude at your workplace. Be it a multi-national company or a small business, productivity and the proper use of time and resources is vital for success. Furthermore, an accountability coach inspires and motivates you and your staff by providing them with the training they need to manage stress, workloads, and issues effectively.
The most important benefit of having an accountability coach helping you is the trust you gain in your abilities. With the help of an accountability coach, you get a better command of your day to day affairs. Through self-analysis and self-intervention that reflects positively on your company as well as on your staff. In the end, you get a work environment that ensures respect, trust, and also loyalty through continuous accountability and acceptance. Such a situation is inherently conducive to progress as everyone can bring their best to the team and feel that their actions have a positive effect on the company.
Finally, as with everything in life, getting an accountability coach for your business should be a measured and calculated decision. An accountability coach can be a vital resource for your business as they can bring you the skillset and expertise you need to create a supportive atmosphere at your workplace where your staff can work in peace while understanding their responsibilities and bringing their best to the table.
You can’t buy happiness, but Getting Stuff Sine is pretty much the same thing.
I’m Darren Finkelstein ‘The Accountability Guy’
I’m a sought-after, highly experienced Accountability Coach, Business Advisor & Mentor. I work with high-performing entrepreneurial business owners and their teams. Also, I am a conference and event speaker on all matters of accountability and getting stuff done.
My past experience includes working at Apple for 10-years as ‘Manager of Commercial Markets’ during the inspirational Steve Jobs era. Then, building a successful entrepreneurial business for 15-years in the marine and lifestyle industry until we successfully sold and exited. I’m the author of three bestselling and award-winning books and are a part-time summer presenter in Melbourne on radio 3AW.
Accountability is my specialty; it’s a tool that I’ve mastered for my business over many years. It held me in good stead at Apple, and it kept me ahead of the game in our business. The result is that I’m incredibly focussed, well organised and outcome-driven which has led to my business success. Yet for others, accountability frequently makes people nervous, as it requires us to step up our game, be introspective and hold ourselves to account, which can be very uncomfortable initially until you harness the power and momentum it generates, with the realisation how powerful it is, and how effective you could become.
Did you know that the A-word ‘accountability’, is regularly misspelt and often misunderstood? Businesses don’t really understand the difference between responsibility and accountability? Both are cousins but not the same. You see, you are responsible for things and accountable to people, hence the confusion. To me, being accountable means ‘doing the things you say you are going to do’, and ‘getting your team to do the same’.
Work with me directly and I’ll keep you accountable, hold you to your commitments, promises and goals in my One-On-One Sessions (limited spaces available) or perhaps you and your team would like to join one of my private Mastermind Group Forums, or try my (D.I.Y) online program ‘Accountability Made Easy’. Want to know more about working with me? Visit Working With Me.
It’s my desire to hold everyone in the room to account, which makes me an engaging Speaker on the subject of ‘Accountability’ for your next event, conference or workshop face-to-face or virtual. My goal is to not motivate but to inspire your audience to take action for themselves so they too can implement and execute.
I’ve got a full playbook of strategies that I’m privileged to share or maybe we can create a totally bespoke and customised package to suit your individual or team needs. For more information, visit my website.
