Accountability vs responsibility: 5 ways they differ | Develop Good Habits

Must Read

Accountability and responsibility are often interchanged, but these terms aren’t the same. Accountability refers to the willingness to accept responsibility for your actions and outcomes– both positive and negative while responsibility is task-oriented and can be divided up among several people. What makes them extremely different is that not all responsible people are accountable.  Yes, you can be responsible, but you can’t be accountable if you aren’t willing to accept responsibility for the outcome. Another difference between the two is that responsibility can happen before or during a task. Accountability can only take place after the task is complete. In addition, the amount of responsibility someone has is determined by the person who is accountable for the outcome.
