Why Having An Accountability Partner is Good for Productivity

An accountability partner is a highly effective tool for increasing productivity

If you have ever had a running or workout partner, you have likely experienced how much it helped you stay on track with your fitness goals. Making the commitment to stick to your plan can be much easier when you’ve told someone else that you’ll be there at 6am, rain or shine. The same proves true with professional and business goals.  Sharing goals with someone else creates more energy and momentum to follow through, keep at it, and work through challenges. An accountability partner is a highly effective tool for increasing productivity personally and professionally.

Accountability in Business

Smart companies and employers understand that accountability partnerships are effective not just for helping employees achieve personal goals. Peer-to-peer accountability partnerships at work are also very effective in helping employees reach business goals. And employee success can have a significant impact on employee satisfaction and the bottom line. Different than mentorship and a manager-to-employee relationship, a peer-based relationship is often easier to establish.  In addition, it is also often a more effective tool for making progress towards a goal. Accountability provided through a coaching relationship is also effective.

Accountability partnerships succeed when they are a collaboration between two colleagues or between coach and client who mutually like and respect each another. Understanding your personality and work style helps in creating a successful accountability partnership. To be most effective, your accountability partner should be someone you trust, who will keep you honest and moving on the path you have set for yourself.

In this short video, Debbie provides suggestions for how to create an accountability partnership to increase your productivity.
