What is An Accountability Group?

An accountability group is a group of 3-7 like-minded people. Such a group ensures that each person gets an equal opportunity to raise their concerns and receive advice. There are follow-ups and regular communications regarding goals, plans, and prioritizing processes.

An accountability group helps create peer-to-peer accountability and enables you to gain insights into other industries that you might find helpful. Accountability groups allow you to share goals and the process of achieving them openly and honestly.

Such groups let you learn more and help you analyze your failures to learn from them and succeed in your organization. So, creating an accountability group is quite crucial from a business point of view.

Creating Accountability Groups

Now you know what accountability groups are, you might want to start your own group. Here are some tips to bear in mind when creating an accountability group:

  • Ensure your group has only 3-7 members. This ensures everyone gets an equal opportunity to advise and receive advice.
  • Consider what you want to achieve with this group
  • Ensure you find like-minded individuals who are working hard in their respective industries
  • Avoid making an accountability group with family and close friends. They may not push you as much.
  • Consider your meeting locations. Suppose your group members are from all over the world; zoom and Facebook groups may work well.
  • Ensure you have protocols in place so everyone gets what they want from the group
  • Being respectful of each other is vital in an accountability group
  • If everyone’s focus and values are aligned, get your group to sign a commitment to be part of the group. Suppose someone is unwilling to sign; let them move on.
