“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” -Helen Keller
Many experts in fields from sales and team dynamics to productivity and weight loss discuss the idea of having at least one person to whom you are accountable. Whatever the task or goal, it’s simply more likely to reach completion if there are regular check-ins with someone else. Some have dubbed this person an “accountabilibuddy” – a cute word combination of the idea of accountability with that of a buddy, obviously.
Whatever you call the co-worker filling this vital role, however, he or she serves an important function in getting work done. We love when we hear feedback that our Best TeamBuilding® programs have forged stronger bonds between teammates, especially when accountabilibuddies (that’s a mouthful!) are now more comfortable, more focused, and more productive when working together.
