Additional Q+As

What are the boundaries of accountability?

Boundary 1: The coachee ultimately chooses what they want to be held accountable to.

Boundary 2: The coach cannot make, or put pressure on, the coachee to be held accountable for something and/or follow through with their commitment.

 

 

What if my coachee wants to hold himself or herself accountable?

Ideally, the coach or another person holds the coachee accountable. If the coachee wants to hold themselves accountable, under special circumstances, this can work. We stress that if this is the case, you support your coachee to clearly define exactly how they will hold themselves accountable and explore what they are committed to in relationship to the goal and outcome.
