What does accountability mean to you?
Accountability appears to be one of the new buzz words popping up everywhere. However, what does accountability mean? According to Dictionary.com, accountability means “the state of being accountable, liable, or answerable.” However, I was taught to refrain from using the word to define itself, ….sooooooo what does accountability mean?
Accountability allows us an opportunity to reflect and analyze ourselves and determine if we honored said commitment, if we were being true to ourselves/situation/others, and if we gave adequate amount of attention/effort/consideration. Accountability ensures that you are aligned internally and externally with who you are, who you say you are and who you are becoming. Personal responsibility on steroids, if you will.
