Extra resources for Accountability. Taking Ownership of Your Responsibility
Executive Brief More and more organizations are putting in a lot of effort to measure engagement and foster empowerment in order to develop a culture of accountability—taking ownership of projects, processes, and problems that cut across lines of position and formal responsibility. Whereas responsibility is generally delegated by the boss, the organization, or by virtue of position, accountability is having a sense of ownership for the task and the willingness to face the consequences that come with success or failure.
The challenge with accountability is that it is intrinsic, just like engagement and empowerment. An environment or culture that promotes accountability can be fostered, but the end result is totally dependent on the individual’s—or sometimes, as we will see later in this guidebook, the team’s—choice to act with greater accountability. Much of the accountability literature attempts to make a distinction between people who act with great accountability and people who act as victims of circumstances and who are not willing to own the outcomes and ultimately the consequences of failed actions.
