So how do we find an excellent accountability partner?
- It can be difficult to find a good accountability partner. However, there are some important things you should look for in the person that will help them work with you and keep you moving forward.
- One, make sure they share similar values as you.
- Two, make sure they have time to commit to this partnership. The last thing we want is stress and frustration.

This person can really push one’s motivation by providing support, encouragement, or even constructive feedback. They are not always easy to find but it can make all the difference in getting things done efficiently while still maintaining some balance between fun activities and work-related tasks!
How to make your relationship with your accountability partner work for you.
- Set clear expectations from the start for each other. Do not be overpowering, but sensitive to what your partner needs to be successful. This goes back to what motivates your accountability partner to continue moving. This is a long-term relationship; you are committing to their goals too. Make sure it’s a good fit before committing and goal crushing will prevail.
