TEAMS

2022

I’ll do it with your team.

I will work with your team members individually or in small groups to ensure they all exceed their own individual and team KPIs, tasks and goals.  Having me on your team is a sure-fire way to ensure that the entire team fulfills its promises, goals, and commitments made to others, and importantly to themselves.

 

 

All prices shown include GST. Subject to change without notice.

How does this work?

How long is each session?

How regularly will these sessions be held?

Can I reschedule or rearrange session times? What happens over the mid-year and Christmas/NY breaks?

Can I get a recording of our sessions?

Can I get in contact, or have access to Darren outside of our sessions, should I need assistance?

Following each session, you’ll get a written list of those tasks you agreed to complete, and due dates for their completion.

I’ve got a couple of cost effective ways you can pay your session fees:
1> Pay-By-The-Month
2> Pay-In-Full to SAVE 10%.

PayAdvantage* is the convenient and secure, automatic direct debit system we use. You can choose to pay from your nominated bank account or preferred credit card each month on a set day for the duration of your program. (PayAdvantage surcharge* applies.)

Pay-in-Full with bank transfer or your preferred credit card. You save 10% off your program fee when you pay in full before the start of your program.

Can I stop my program, before the completion date?

In my ‘Team Accountability Program’, I work individually with your team members over Zoom, either in a One-On-One private client session or in a Two-On-One session, which is gaining popularity. My role is to ensure that your team members meet the KPI’s set by the company. My goal is that they achieve their goals. I’m in their corner every step of the way.

To kick off the accountability focus within your organisation, I love to start with a 60-minute introduction presentation entitled “Accountability is a Superpower,” via Zoom, optional if you wish. Customers find the presentation invaluable to debunk the definition and relevance of the “dreaded A-word” in most organisations.  It’s a really positive way to start the program. I’d really love to do a face-to-face presentation if you’re local in metro Melbourne (unless you’re prepared to pick-up my travel costs) should you be outside my local area. Otherwise, I’ll deliver my virtual presentation over Zoom.  Each participating team member in my ‘Team Accountability Program’ will also receive a signed copy of my newest book, ‘The Accountability Advantage’ – Play your best game. If you’d like extra copies of my book to gift other team members not participating, you can arrange to purchase additional bulk copies, at a heavily discounted price.

With all that done – now the serious stuff begins as we embark on my Weekly Check-In & Coaching Sessions, where I’ll personally coach your team. We’ll do Zoom calls each session as I monitor their progress against their KPI’s and the objectives that we set prior to the session. It is the frequency of sessions and my 7-step Road to Accountability framework that makes all the difference. There are NO excuses, no blame, no finger pointing. It’s all about deliverables, taking action and building confidence, which I’ll mentor and guide your team personally through. ‘Team Accountability’ is ideal for your sales teams, project teams and your leadership group. After all, ‘accountability starts at the top’. I offer your Team a choice of quarterly programs (3 months duration) there’s half-yearly (6 months) and my annual (12 months) program which are all designed to fit nicely into your business year.

60-minute sessions are best.
(30-min sessions are available)

Your management to set,
weekly is best for 60 minutes.

Make-up sessions will be added to all active programs during annual leave breaks (usually a few weeks in July and the Christmas / New Year period). It’s nice to stay fresh, and we all have to care about our health and wellbeing. If you, or a team member, need to reschedule an agreed date, or wish to move your regular cycle, I would be delighted to help, where possible. Please give a minimum of 48 hours notice to change dates, otherwise you may forfeit that session. Wherever possible, I am flexible, so let’s chat if you need to change any future dates and times.

Yes, recordings are available from all our Zoom sessions (sorry, not for mobile calls and face-to-face visits). The recordings will be available for download from our shared DropBox for your review and implementation. Naturally, recordings are made with the permission of everyone involved.

Yes, the participants can contact me outside our agreed session times for advice, clarity, focus, support and assistance. I love hearing about the WINS, and we’ll review the losses. I’ll be there for you, regardless of outcome, to support and encourage you. You are welcome to call me, but I am often in session, so I can’t speak, but I will always call you back as soon as possible. Text or email is always best.

Yes, emailed to each team member after the session.

Bank transfer or credit card

A$1,100* per calendar month, per participant for your choice of: 3, 6, or 12 months of my ‘Team Accountability Program’. PayAdvantage surcharge* applies.

A$2,970 – 3 months (SAVE 10%)

A$5,940 – 6 months (SAVE 10%)

A$11,880 – 12 months (SAVE 10%)

Fine print: This is not feasible for my Group Accountability and/or Team Accountability Programs, as you will be letting down others who are depending on your participation. You may swap out and replace participants during the program, if required.

UNBOXING SESSION

- No obligation Whatsoever -

Our Unboxing Session is FREE of charge, no obligation, and takes just 45 to 60 minutes. We’ll speak via Zoom video call or over the phone – I’ll call you.

To prepare you’ll need your ‘To-Do List’ or business ‘wish list’ on hand. If you don’t have either, don’t worry – we’ll create one during our session together.

Note: You’ll need to be a willing participant in the session if you want to get the most out of it. I expect you to be open and honest as we discuss your life and business plans, and as we begin to challenge your habitual thought patterns.

The Tick Those Boxes Unboxing Session will provide you with 4 significant outcomes. We’ll:

  1. Undertake a 45 to 60-minute discussion about your business and its goals.
  2. Examine your priorities to encapsulate what needs to be done.
  3. Review your ‘To-Do List’ and examine its implementation and execution.
  4. Create a plan and set timelines for you – together.

By participating in this Unboxing Session, there is a lot you could gain from the experience, yet very little to lose.

On the other hand, if you keep the status quo and do nothing about your situation, it’s the same as sticking your head in the sand, hoping it’ll all just go away. This is procrastination, the most powerful thief of self-confidence. 

Hoping your situation will improve without taking any action is simply wishful thinking. Doing nothing only compounds the issue, ensuring tomorrow’s results will be the same as yesterday.

Focus is the mighty tool of self-confidence.  Don’t even think about starting; just focus on taking the first step.

Here is an excellent idea to consider: The day you take the first step towards achieving the task you’ve been procrastinating – often the major step holding you back – is the day you beat procrastination.

Unbox your goals and begin achieving them NOW!

How I operate is outlined Here: Rules of Engagement (Service Agreement). Check it out and then book in your Unboxing Session.

Game Changing Facts

A research study undertaken in the USA in 2010 identified the factors that determine the percentage probability of completing a goal, task, or project. Here’s what the research concluded – it’s incredibly exciting!

You have a:

  • 10% probability of completing your goal if…  you have an actual idea or goal.
  • 25% – If you consciously decide you will do it.
  • 40% – If you decide when you will do it.
  • 50% – If you plan how you will do it.
  • 65% – If you commit to someone you will do it.
  • 95% – If you have a specific accountability appointment with a person you’ve committed to.

Knowing this, how likely are you to achieve your goals, promises, obligations, and commitments on your own?

'HOPE' IS NOT A STRATEGY

Doing nothing and hoping it’ll all sort itself out definitely doesn’t work. Forming a plan is a strategy, while its implementation and execution are key.

Create certainty in your life and business by acting on your intentions. You can make them a reality.

You won’t read about hope in famous business books by Richard Branson, Gary Vaynerchuk, Andrew Griffiths, or Daniel Priestley!

7 SIGNS YOU NEED ACCOUNTABILITY

  1. FEELING OVERWHELMED –You’ve got too much going on at once; there’s too much to focus on.
  2. OVER-AMBITIOUS –You’re unable to say NO, overcommit and bite off more than you can chew.
  3. NO PLAN –You want to complete a specific task but get side-tracked. ‘If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.’ (I bet you’ve heard that one before, right? It’s Benjamin Franklin. He got sh!t done.)
  4. PAST PROBLEMS HOLD YOU BACK –Whatever stopped you from achieving in the past is still lingering, messing with your head.
  5. YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN –This is procrastination. Your ‘To-Do List’ gets bigger while your unfocused mind takes forever to actually begin.
  6. YOU DON’T HAVE A BIG ENOUGH REASON –There’s no genuine motivation to get the task done so you move on to the next item before you’ve even completed the original job.
  7. NO ONE CARES –No one’s holding you to account to ensure you do what you say by the date it’s due. There’s no support to get you and your team/staff to do the same.

YOUR HEAD IS BURIED
IN THE SAND

Waiting to see if the situation improves by itself is called ‘sticking your head in the sand’, and that only makes matters worse.

Tomorrow’s result will be the same as today and yesterday, unless you take action. Einstein called that “the definition of insanity”.

Wasted time, missed opportunities, and upsetting the important people around you (including yourself) is all that’s likely to happen. 

You’ll only waste more time, miss those golden opportunities, and piss off everyone in the process.

Take action now, to stop the cycle.

Former Executive at Apple Inc., and Now Successful Entrepreneur:

I’m Darren Finkelstein, The Accountability Guy® – Accountability Coach, Business Advisor, Mentor, Author, and Speaker, and I have something of value to share with you.

I help high-performing individuals and teams achieve results, pursue their wildest dreams and smash their goals like glass pinatas with a cricket bat. I leverage over 30 years of experience in the corporate world, within small businesses, and as a successful entrepreneur.

Together with my previous business partner we built and developed an astounding full-service business in the marine and lifestyle industry before successfully selling and exiting the business after 15 years. Therefore, I have a deep appreciation for what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur in highly competitive and established markets.

I’ve written several award-winning and bestselling books and am a summer presenter on Radio 3AW. My popular  ‘Beach and Bay’ reports focus on the outdoors and living life to the fullest in and around Melbourne, Australia.

My strong business foundation was built while working at Apple Inc. for 10 years as Manager of Commercial Markets during the inspirational Steve Jobs era. (Yes, I met Steve.)

The pinnacle for me was being presented the famous Golden Apple Award for Sales Excellence, while later in my career I also won the Australian ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ for Dent Global.

Do you know the word accountability is regularly misspelled and often misunderstood? Businesses don’t understand the difference between responsibility and accountability. They’re cousins, but not the same.

You are responsible for material items and accountable to people. Being accountable means: ‘Doing the things you say you’re going to do, while ensuring your team does the same.’

Working with me means I’ll be holding you to account on your commitments, promises, and goals. We’ll action this in our One-on-One Sessions (Limited spaces available), or with your team when you join one of my private Mastermind Group Forums.

If you want to do things at your own pace, try Accountability Made Easy – my D.I.Y. online learning platform. Or consider reading my latest book, The Accountability Advantage – Play your best game.

If you’d like to know more about private one-on-one programs to, check out the Working with Me page.

Hoping everything will sort itself out is not a viable option. My full playbook of strategies will ensure you never follow the status quo ever again!
