"Don't let this year's goals become next year's goals".
Anyone else with me right now? Its October, and you're scrambling to see what 2019 goals aren't going to trickle into next year. And although it may too late this year, we sure as heck don't want you to be saying this next year. We want you to get grounded in your vision and manifest the shit out of it. Accountability groups unite around one common purpose: supporting each other to achieve our individual goals. Our accountability groups are rooted in the concept of peer mentorship + community building.
WHAT MAKES UP A SOLID ACCOUNTABILITY GROUP?
- A leader: Someone who can ensure that gatherings are conducted on time and within the established values/guidelines.
- Consistency: The groups will meet once a month (weekday evening).
- Frequent communication: Private FB group will be set up for members only, and for the many-to-many format for you to stay in contact with your peers outside of meetings
- "Failure OK mindset": When things are going ok, your own approval is enough... but when things go sideways you need a community to put you back on track. Being as open + honest about your struggles in biz is encouraged.
- Confidentiality: All members of the group will need to sign a confidentiality agreement. Members of the group may be sharing sensitive financial, product, proprietary + branding information. The foundation of the group needs to be built on trust.
- Attendance: Group members must make all efforts to attend.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM THE MEETINGS (and beyond):
- January 2020 meeting to set up the annual goals roadmap (this meeting may longer than the typical timeline).
- Branded workbook to keep track of goal setting + progress.
- Big picture thinking + micro goal setting.
- Monthly meetings (mastermind style) at 2-3 hours (weekday evenings, but weekends may happen occasionally).
- Each member will have their time to talk about their current goals at each meeting, followed by an open discussion about it. The end of each meeting will be a new goal setting moment for the upcoming month.
- 3 guest speaker throughout the year (local expert, business coach etc).
- Tea + coffee bar, local snacks at each meeting.
- Support + community.
