This Month our focus at Automate Grow Sell has been on Accountability and we have already had great feedback on articles we have shared this month.
Set A Negative Consequence
Not long ago I reread The Success Principles by Jack Canfield; he shares a story about a business executive who wanted to learn how to swim and jump off a diving board. He committed to a very negative consequence in front of his team to hold himself accountable.
When you set a negative consequence, and you are someone who follows through, this can create tremendous tension to be accountable.
I experimented with negative accountability strategies for entrepreneurs in a group-coaching program Im a part of. Members had to set a negative consequence for not following through on their commitments.
Two weeks later, all but three had done what they said they were going to do - 83% of them. That is a testament to how effective this strategy can be! The feedback was that it lit a fire under them to get things done because they didn’t want to have to follow through on the consequence they set.
