Accountability Partner – What is it and Why You Need One

An accountability partner is key to helping you achieve success in business, personal relationships and more!

An Accountability Partner is a person who checks in and supports you while you’re trying to accomplish your goals. They are similar to a mentor. However, the difference is that they are usually in the same stage of the process as you. That means they can be considered as an equal. Maybe they’re trying to accomplish the same goals as you. Either way, they are your cheerleader and the person you rely on to make sure you don’t give up. They encourage you to keep going when you feel like stopping and they ensure you do what you’re supposed to.  

A good accountability partner is important to have because they are highly effective in helping you achieve your goals. You tell them what you want to accomplish or do in life, and they check in with you to make sure you’re actually doing it. The idea is that it’s easier to take action than to disappoint the person. You can also tell them about the concerns you have and how you feel as you progress through obstacles. That means if you’re feeling discouraged about a goal, you have someone to help you get back up! They’ll make sure you’re still on your path to success. They listen and cheer you on, including when you stumble.   

Choosing an Accountability Partner

So then, how do you choose an accountability partner? There are several different types, but generally you want to choose someone you know will have your back. Some people choose their friends or family; usually someone close to them. There are a few cons to choosing someone close to you, however. Their constructive criticisms may be taken personally. They may also say something that discourages you more than actually reinforces your motivation. Another potential downside is that you may feel uncomfortable sharing certain insecurities. An independent partner accepts all your emotions.   

This is why I recommend forming an accountability partnership with someone who is an unbiased figure in your life. When you search online, you’ll find  with different skill sets that are better suitable for your needs. With a personal friend or family member, you may have goals that they have no experience in, so their support might be lacking. With a partner who specializes in weight loss, financials, or other goals you need to achieve, they will know exactly how to work with you.
