As you might guess from the podcast, I've been wrestling with a few things related to my coaching practice lately.

It's not that I've got bad clients, and it's certainly not that I'm a bad coach (I'm an awesome coach), but there's this missing element where people aren't doing what we agree they're going to do.

Accountability is the barrier. It's the stumbling block. I think it was either Jim Rohn or Zig Ziglar who said that people complain motivation doesn't last, but neither does bathing, which is why we recommend it daily.

It's hard to introduce accountability into individual coaching without adding some sort of "I will harass you about your goal until you actually do something about it" component.

I don't like that idea. Harassing people about getting stuff done seems counterproductive. I don't like it when people do that to me, and it actually makes me less likely to follow through.

Of course, I am not my customer, so maybe that's exactly what I need to do.

I'm open to suggestions about it. Jump over to the Legion of Badass and comment, if you have one.
