Real world example

I have interstate clients who have engaged me every week as their Accountability Coach and trusted Business Adviser. All of our Sessions are conducted online using Zoom early on Monday mornings, to kick off their working week.

The purpose of these customised sessions is to provide clients with review, clarity and intention for the week ahead. I then follow up with our signature ‘Weekly Check-Ins’ to ensure implementation and execution. My clients find this process ensures they actually achieve their desired outcomes whilst keeping them fully-accountable. We often say “Accountability increases activity, Activity increases opportunity” and this is where my clients get more customers, generate more sales and make more money…

(Mastermind Group)

"YOU SELECT YOUR MEMBERS, LET THE MAGIC BEGIN"

DURATION - Three, six or twelve month program
COST - $160 per person, per session incl. GST
GROUP SIZE - Ideally 3px-7px including the organiser

My Mastermind Group

My ‘Group Accountability Forum’ has been created to help each of the participants sharpen business skills and personal skills in a safe and highly-focused business environment. Above all it’s a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability and group accountability which is ideal for:

  • Project Groups
  • Sales Teams
  • Profit Centres & Departments
  • Alumni (Uni, Dent Global)
  • Networking Groups (BNI, Dent Global, Associations)
  • Management Teams & Leadership Groups
  • Board & Advisory Members

This offering is unique, as you invite your own participants to join your Group. Above all else, it’s vital you choose carefully. Ideally, you need 3-7 people (including the group organiser) it is critical to have members whose opinions you respect, whose work you admire, and who you trust. Also important, choose some members who are more successful than you are so that they can help push you to reach your goals.

You set the frequency

Sessions take place at an agreed frequency, once per month is also really common, your group will choose. During each session, each member will share their WINS with the group members and they will be discussed. Each member is then placed in the ‘Hot Seat’ where they will share;

  • What’s working for them
  • What’s not working
  • What is this week’s goal; task, action or process in which you need assistance? The group shall discuss and provide you with solutions, alternative ways and/or share similar experiences.

The purpose is to remove roadblocks and obstacles in your pursuit of your desired outcome. The next task is for each member to set and share their goals (and/or tasks) that they need to complete before the groups next session. These will also be recorded and members will be fully-held to account by the group to ensure they ‘do what you say you are going to do’ by the due date set.

My role is your ‘Forum Facilitator’. Each Forum session is between 60-120 minutes duration, held at either at an agreed location. Zoom or Skype will be arranged if you’re not located in Melbourne. Room hire will be charged back at cost if required.

I’ll facilitate the group

If you’re located outside Melbourne, I’ll gladly travel to you but you’ll need to pick up my travel costs. It’s pretty standard and everything is doable. My travel guidelines are outlined within my Rules of Engagement (Service Agreement) see below.

Sessions will also be at an agreed frequency of your Forum’s choosing throughout the year; monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly, whatever the group agrees.

Forum members agree to follow ‘The Group Accountability Protocols’ which is the code of conduct which Forum members must adhere and comply. This ensures we all play nicely together. Please ask for a copy.

Furthermore, as your ‘Forum Facilitator,’ my role is independent. I’m at arm’s length away from all members and I am not emotionally connected to outcomes, people or history. My impartiality means I can also call it as I see it, looking inside from an outsider’s perspective with an entrepreneurial focus, and a proven track record in both big and small business over a sustained period of time.

I’ll hold the group to account

Action Items agreed, will also be circulated and followed up prior to the next session to ensure everyone is held to account. It is each Group Members responsibility to present, discuss and deliver their completed “Actions Items” to the Forum Members within the time-frame agreed.

My team will stay on top of the details, so we will send emails to remind Forum members of the next meeting, upcoming deadlines and agreed actions. We may also create a private ‘WhatsApp’ Group to support each other if the group agrees.

PACKAGE 7.

"AUTHOR ACCOUNTABILITY PACKAGE"
For clients of Publish Central and/or Andrew Griffiths.

DURATION - Three one-on-one sessions*.
FREQUENCY - You choose, depending on publishing schedule
COST - $899* incl. GST

This unique offer is only available for authors who have engaged Publish Central and/or Andrew Griffiths.

As an author of three bestselling award-winning books myself, someone who has worked closely with both Michael Hanrahan and Andrew Griffiths over a number of years, I know how hard it is to complete the manuscript and submit on time.

To make it easier for you, the three-wise men (Michael, Andrew and I) put our collective heads together and have created this ‘Author Accountability Package’ which targets:

  1. Authors that would like to have full-accountability so they can complete their final manuscript on time.
  2. The author who is grappling to complete their final manuscript for lodgement on/before the publishing deadline.
  3. Struggling authors who have not yet meet any of the deadlines and just haven’t been able to finish… and they are finally ready to do something about it.

We work to your publishing schedule

Each session is up to 60-minutes using either Zoom or Skype and you will have three-sessions* to finish your specific writing project to meet your publishing schedule. *Alternatively, we can easily modify the standard program by adding additional sessions to suit your needs and schedule. Naturally, the session cost will be adjusted.

My team and I will be on your case to regularly check in on your progress and we will drive you hard for completion. Each session you’ll know what needs to be done, your progress to date and how you’ll do it, so I will hold you to account to make sure you’re on target.

Because my usual Unboxing Session (see below) is not applicable to this package, we’ve created a free ‘planning session’ especially for you and we will do it over Zoom or Skype. Online ‘planning’ will be with either Michael or Andrew and me. Together, well will set deadlines and confirm our road ahead.

In the end, your final manuscript will be finished and ready for publishing, soon you will truly be a published author. Congratulations, that is quite an achievement. What’s your next book title, you know you can’t stop now?

The Gift of Action

Visit our Shop if you’d like to buy any of my packages as a Gift Card (the gift of action) for someone special. It makes a great and unique gift idea for Christmas, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Valentines Day or just because it’s a lovely thing to do, and who needs an occasion

IT STARTS HERE...

UNBOXING SESSION
- Free and without obligation -

First of all, this session is FREE and takes between 60-90 minutes. This session will be conducted over Zoom or Skype, however, if you’ve got a lousy internet connection then we can talk over the phone, I’ll call you.

Secondly, in preparation for the session, all you need to have ready is your ‘To-Do List’ or your business ‘wish list’. You need to be a willing participant, being open and honest as we discuss its contents and relevance to your goals when I challenge your thinking.

Finally, I’m always happy to travel to you if you’re in Melbourne metro, otherwise, you’ll need to pick up my travel costs, which is pretty standard. Everything is doable, my travel policy and the way I operate is outlined within my Rules of Engagement (Service Agreement) see below.

What’s included in the Unboxing Session?

You’ll get four important outcomes from my Unboxing Session:

  1. 60-90 minute obligation free discussion about your business, your goals, promises and commitments.
  2. We’ll examine your priorities
  3. Review your ‘To-Do List’. We’ll dig-in deep to discuss the most effective ways to implement & execute
  4. Together, we will create a plan and set realistic and achievable timelines

So much to gain, nothing to lose

There is NO downside for you whatsoever, and so much to gain!

In conclusion, doing nothing (same as sticking your head in the sand), procrastinating and hope will not improve your situation, so you need to take action and execute a plan of change, otherwise, tomorrow’s result will be the same as today and yesterday. (you knew that).

Furthermore, maintaining your current status quo, only means you’ll miss important opportunities to make money. You’ll let people down, especially those that are important people to you and you will remain stagnant.

Start your session today!

The Unboxing Session is an opportunity to decide whether or not I’m the right fit for you and whether you’d like to engage me for you and your business. You’ll get to better understand my skill set and experience, you’ll get a clear sense of my energy levels and drive. After all, ensuring we connect is vital and our chemistry is important.

So, let’s get into this, there’s a lot to do and there’s no better time to take action than RIGHT NOW as we begin a new decade.

"The Best Accountability
Coach in the Game!"

-Andrew Griffiths, Best Selling Author & Speaker

Andrew Griffiths | Accountability Coach
Tracy-Sheen-768

I'm fantastic at generating the 'big picture' but when it comes to breaking that down into manageable steps that will see it come to life, well, not my strong point, And so, all these 'nice to haves' (like writing my book) go on the back burner for another time. Life happens, clients need attention... all the things we tell ourselves that prevent us from delivering on the things we know will actually promote us forward. Working with Darren over the last few months has allowed me to 'tick those boxes' on the seemingly small steps that are moving me closer every week to the outcomes I've said I want. No BS, no excuses, just honest talk and accountability. Realistic time frames and someone to act as a sounding board who 'gets it'. If you're sick of saying you want to achieve (insert random project) and your actually to step up and deliver on what you tell yourself then Darren is your guy.

Tracy Sheen

Hanrahan

I had my first accountability session with Darren last week. He first explored my business and my goals, and then we worked out what the most important things were for me to do next. Darren really helped me work out my priorities and make some important decisions about my business. I left the session feeling inspired and motivated, and most importantly with a plan for what to do next. I highly recommend Darren.
