Full disclosure. I’m a personal accountability coach. So there may be some unconscious bias here and there.
But I also strive to be an extremely transparent and truthful person, so I certainly won’t lead you astray or pressure you to sign up for anything.
And for what it’s worth, I use a personal accountability coach myself, because I know accountability coaching works.
The Best Personal Accountability Coach for You
My intention is to help match you up with the best personal accountability coach for you.
Because I really want people to thrive in life and achieve their goals. That just makes for a better society for us all, doesn’t it?
And so, with all that preamble out of the way, let’s get into everything you need to know to find your own personal accountability coach.
What Is a Personal Accountability Coach?
A personal accountability coach is your own personal coach who will help you focus on achieving your goals.
They maximize your productive potential by making sure you have clear goals and a detailed action plan so that you are doing the real work you need to do to in order to achieve those goals.
A personal accountability coach will:
- Hold you accountable to your deadlines
- Motivate you over the long term
- Feed you a constant drip of productivity hacks and success tips so you can firmly establish the habits that will enable you to take massive action over time.
Why You Should Use a Personal Accountability Coach
It’s a good question. Really, why should you?
Well, I talk about the three biggest reasons to use a personal accountability coach, but briefly, I think you should use a personal accountability coach if you want to:
- Exponentially increase your productivity
- Get more done every day
- Overcome procrastination
- Sharpen your focus
- Actually achieve your goals
Accountability Coaching for Entrepreneurs
It’s also worth noting here that accountability coaching works extremely well for entrepreneurs.
So if that’s you, you may want to take a closer look at accountability coaching and consider using it as a competitive edge.
Where to Find a Personal Accountability Coach
Well, you’re in luck.
Because if you’re reading this then that means you have access to the perhaps the greatest invention of all time: the internet.
And so, I recommend searching for “online accountability coach” and perusing the different accountability coaching websites that you find listed.
The beauty thing is, your personal accountability coach can be anywhere in the world and all the accountability coaching can be done remotely.
What to Look for in a Personal Accountability Coach
Working with a personal accountability coach is a direct one-to-one relationship, so you want to make sure that your coach has very good listening skills.
They need to listen to you carefully so that they can help you clearly define your goals.
Listen to the questions they ask you. They should be asking you questions about your habits and challenges.
They should want to know about these things so they can tailor the accountability coaching to your specific needs.
Does Experience Matter With Accountability Coaching?
Yes, it’s definitely a huge help.
A personal accountability coach with several years of experience will have had time to refine their program and really dial it in.
However, that doesn’t mean a new personal accountability coach won’t be right for you or won’t be an amazing coach. We all have to start somewhere.
You really have to speak to them to know if your personalities mesh well.
Social Proof Speaks Loudly
A personal accountability coach who is confident and proud of his results will have lots of testimonials on their web site from previous clients.
Take some time to read their testimonials and make sure the accountability coach’s previous clients have realized the same results that you are looking to achieve.
In summary, you want a personal accountability coach who walks their own talk, has achieved success with their accountability coaching business, who puts you at ease and exudes professionalism.
How to Choose the Right Personal Accountability Coaching Service
Most personal accountability coaches will offer a range of coaching services. Usually a mix of email and phone or video calls.
This will come down to your own personal preference and budget, but the clients that I’ve seen thrive the most use a mix of phone call coaching and email coaching to keep them accountable throughout the week.
And really, the more support, the better when you’re first starting to work on your goals and habits.
