As individuals, accountability helps propel us forward. It forces us to prioritize with intention and makes us enhance our efficiencies so that we can get that “thing” done because, if for no other reason, we said we would. While in some instances accountability naturally flows, in others, it is contrived yet just as impactful.

Attorneys in private practice can utilize accountability partners to fuel the advances one truly wants to make in their efforts to build books of business. When attorneys have to report back on efforts made in business development, they will be hesitant to park it to the side while turning to substantive work in its place. After all, without clients, there’s no substantive work to do.
