The CoachAccountable Blog

What's new with the CA platform, tutorials on using it, and customer spotlights.

Five Years

This year’s cake is actually vegan and gluten free.  You can hardly taste the difference!

Holy moly, that’s like half a decade!

As I look back over the (now quite long) path of this endeavor I’m struck by how thoroughly CoachAccountable has moved past the “startup” phase, how far beyond that humble “Yeah, I’m going to make a web app to help coaches and see if it takes!” hopeful state.

CoachAccountable has taken.

This past year was our biggest yet by a lot in terms of the number of coaches we helped to deliver better and more results-based coaching, and the number of their clients who had a more supported experience with the help of our platform.

Paolo, my first hire and who came on board during this fifth year, turned out to be a lucky hire indeed.  As many of you have experienced Paolo is wicked smart and a patient teacher for coaches all along the technophobe spectrum.  He is talented well beyond answering support issues and giving demos, and I couldn’t have asked for a better person to be the first to join the CoachAccountable team.

Five years.  I’d like to give a nod to the late, great David Bowie whose song of the same name has been playing in my head for the better part of today and all of composing this missive.

Our work is far from done, so I say here’s to five more.  I’ve had so many life-giving and inspiring interactions with coaches while on this path, so it is decidedly my pleasure to keep on it in service of the practice I revere.

    Congratulations just isn’t enough John.

    You are amazing and deserve something like fireworks and a large crowd cheering for you in person.

    Ever grateful for all your hard work… and your success…

    Well done John!

    You’ve built a terrific platform that has already made my coaching more rigorous and effective in the short time since we started to use CA.

    I led a sales team workshop yesterday. The most significant outcome was agreement with two senior managers that they will each spend 15 hours/week coaching sales team members. They’re looking forward to receiving the daily email at 4:45pm that will ask for the number of hours spent coaching that day and a brief comment.

    CA enables me to co-create more value with my clients.

    (And I completely agree with your comments about Paolo!)

    All the very best for the next 5 years and beyond!!
