For the people who have said not to spend the money, I would question how they spend money in order to grow their business. My guess is that most of these people are not top producers. I will do $20M with the system and I'm a fan.
Better to take bits and pieces from all the programs out there and create your own system that fits your skills, your personality, your market, and your resources.
You're already accountable to yourself, that should mean more and be more motivating than being accountable to anyone else.
From my experience and observation the PROGRAMS has less to do with success than the internal conflict of the agent with their IDWDT list.
Until the suppressing elements have been reconciled, internally, as bankrupt, these long held protected and treasured impediments to success will prohibit any program from achieving it's goal. If, however, the program INCLUDES a 'Dr. Phil' segment that explores the IDWDT, and presses forward with, "How's that workin' for yah?" the program will be more beneficial to the presenting company than the attending professional.
So, has the "I Don't Wanna Do That' list been identified and reckoned to be bankrupt? Until then, the excuses are already built into the result, the efforts/intent is sabotaged - before the adventure begins.
What is your favorite IDWDT?

"none of us implemented it like they told us to"
I am puzzled. What exactly can one do in life where the outcome is somewhat predictable, but one can disregard the rules or instructions? Where one can insist on "I'll do it my way!" even if the evidence reveals it does not work. Hmmm, I wonder how that plays out when working with IKEA?
To often we get in our own way.
But it is beneficial to know what the thought waves permeating the industry are at this time.
I love many of the ideas Brian Buffini has to offer. Coaching is expensive and if you can't keep yourself to a calendar then get an accountability partner who will. Coaching in any business is designed to open your eyes to where you can improve.
If you are not coachable you will be wasting your money. BUT, if your office has a group that is a good situation because it is small and measurable.
To your success!
I bet you get out of it what you put into it. My two cents.
