Accountability: Are You Overlooking a Key to Success?

Rubbing Elbows
They understand the value of association.

I attended a conference hosted by Darren Hardy, publisher of SUCCESS Magazine, a couple of years ago. Hardy’s High Performance Forums are an amazing way for a small collection of entrepreneurial CEOs to spend a long weekend learning from each other. At the conclusion of the event, Darren offered all participants a unique challenge: He paired us into groups, with instructions for us to develop a one-year accountability partnership with each other. Together, each pair would have to engage in a weekly call to hold the other person responsible to the goals, dreams, and hopes that we had laid out during our time together.

Feedback is the Breakfast of Champions

A couple of weeks ago, I did a webinar on leadership for a company in the Midwest.

After that event, we sent out a survey to those who participated. We wanted them to freely share their thoughts on the experience. My excitement was high at the thought of hearing their responses, but I was disappointed when a few of the respondents wrote some very strongly worded comments that were not particularly positive. The truth is, at their root, the critiques really gave me a road map to improvement. This prompted me to consider the role of feedback in our lives, and how important it is in our overall growth.
