Accountability

Who Holds You Accountable?

The first week of each month I meet with my accountability group. I'm lucky to be a part of an awesome group of five other CPA's that are in similar growth stages, share common values, and they get where I'm taking my business. When we decided to form a group we set some basic ground rules:

  1. What happens in our Group stays in our Group

  2. We share our financials every month (how else will we know if someone is just blowing smoke)

  3. Each meeting is moderated so we have a format to follow and a time structure (1.5 hours)

  4. The moderator will bring a topic to each meeting and teach us something new and exciting

  5. We set goals. We defined our overall yearly goals (revenue, staff size, customer base, lifestyle, etc), as well as monthly goals. During each monthly meeting we must discuss what we accomplished, what we didn't, and why. It's a tough group. We definitely call each other out!

Why is this important? It is very easy to get sucked into the day to day operations of your business. If you've always got your nose in the actual work, how will you know when you're on the right track. Or better yet, when you're on the wrong track! Having someone hold you accountable will help you think through what you are trying to accomplish, set goals, reach goals, and provide moral support.

What is Business Coaching?

A business coach is similar to what a sports coach does: Instructs, Motivates, Inspires, Brings people together, Analyze and Provide feedback. Business coaching involves one on one discussions and problem solving. It can be ongoing sessions or one-off sessions. Ongoing coaching sessions are setup to determine 1)Where you are in your business, 2) Where you want to be, and 3) How to get there. A coach will help you setup a roadmap, goals, tasks, and hold you accountable so you can reach those goals. One-off coaching sessions may be needed if you have a specific problem you want to solve or discuss.

You may need a business coach to:

  • Prioritize actions in your business

  • Improve your customer's experience

  • Discuss business strategies (pricing, hiring, customers...)

  • Determine your strengths and weaknesses

  • Work through a specific problem

  • Generate ideas and brainstorm

  • Learn and educate yourself about your accounting

  • Discuss and improve the value you offer your customers

  • Have a sounding board or second opinion

Coaching is aimed at helping you work through issues, grow your business, create new ideas, become more innovative. It's very easy to get consumed in the day to day operations. Having a coach helps you to think bigger and improve your results.
