Form or Join a PPAU (Peer-To-Peer Accountability Unit)

At its core, a Peer-To-Peer Accountability Unit (PPAU) is a group of individuals who have come together to support and hold each other accountable in pursuit of their personal and professional goals. Unlike traditional accountability structures, which often involve hierarchical relationships, a PPAU fosters a collaborative and equal partnership among its members.

Through the unique framework of the S-9 PPAU module, a structure for consistent daily personal growth becomes habit, and empowers its members to take ownership of their actions and outcomes—elevating their performance.
