An Accountability Partner Agreement Increases Your Chances of Success

 

Why Do You Need An Accountability Partner?

No one can change the world alone. An accountability partner increases your chances of achieving your goals. When you commit your goals to someone, your probability raises to 65%. If you create a specific accountability appointment with a person, the odds increase to 95%.

What Is a Success Partner?

An accountability partner agreement is the foundation of a reciprocal relationship–each member coaches and helps the other achieve professional or personal goals. The partnership is established by an agreement that defines how the partnership would work. 

Your success partner is like your partner in crime. They will coach you, support you, and be there for you during your journey. Most importantly, they will be your go to person to increase your chances of success.

How to Create An Accountability Partnership

The accountability partner agreement will help you define the terms of the relationship. Each partner completes their accountability partnership template and then share with each other. The touch points section though should be completed together as it requires alignment.

Start by committing to one behavior you want to change– focusing is critical.

1. Choose one behavior you want to change/ improve. Be specific. Rather than "Live a healthier life" you could state "Exercising regularly with small increments week over week."

2. Establish clear metrics to measure progress. Losing weight is generic. However, losing 5 pounds in two weeks is more specific.

3. Define rules of engagement. What coaching style do you expect from your partner? Do you want your partner just to listen or also to challenge you? Do you expect feedback in the form of advice, tips or questions? Clarify what’s confidential. What other things should your partner know about you or the behavior you want to change?

4. Establish a cadence of touch points. Both partners need to agree on the frequency, date, duration, etc. Also, will you be meeting in person or online? How will you spend that time together?
