Why do accountability partnerships work?
We are social beings, evolved to meet our most basic needs and thrive through the benefit of our social relationships. And the same applies to our aspirations. Peer pressure, social acceptance, and group belonging are extremely powerful influences on our psychology. In fact, it is one of the most basic motivations that has developed over thousands of years of evolution. We are social by necessity because it has helped us to survive. And when we understand and appreciate this influence on our behavior, our social psychology, our motivations, and decision-making, we can capitalize on it to help us achieve great things. Many of us don't work successfully in a bubble. Yet, modern ways of working have lent to a more monastic way of life. Sitting by yourself at a computer all day and minimally interacting with others, is contrary to the way we are designed. For many of us, this way of working is extremely unsatisfying and is a detriment to our success. We need others to help us form creative connections and other's vantage points to help us widen our concept of our work. Many of us need to feel as if someone else cares even if we have a small win. It is extremely psychologically rewarding for us to have another person to celebrate our successes with us. Social recognition is powerful. It may feel silly to us that we still want to get that gold star from someone, but in fact, it is a natural and deep psychological need. Accountability partners satisfy this need by holding us accountable for the goals we set for ourselves and helping us to celebrate our achievements when we meet them. People who work with accountability partners are more inclined to set deadlines and meet them than those who don't. When we have a partner or a community to bolster us as we work toward our goals we are able to achieve more than we ever imagined possible.
