What is accountability?

Accountability is about becoming aware of the situation, owning the problem, finding solutions, and making things happen. It is a recognition that you are valuable. That means you can be counted on.

Accountability as a core value provides your company a distinctive advantage. Individuals and teams are contributors to success, not people to blame when mistakes happen.
