I am just in the process of developing a workshop for a client who is hoping to help her team to become more proactive, leaving her to cover more strategic challenges.  One of my start points is to consider accountability and responsibility. Well – don’t ever type THAT into Google! No only are there myriad references, but also lots of differing opinions.  Ultimately, like all else, we need to make our own decisions on what we believe is right for our context and what is well-evidenced.  Anyway, accountability is one for another day because I found this neat little video (Thank you Active Nation) which describes responsibility pretty succinctly.

I hope you like it too.

    Hmmm… I guess it’s a definition. Perhaps a starting point, and I really do like these whiteboard videos. But it’s not exactly evangelical as an example. It does not stir the blood or make me feel that responsibility is anything more than a drag, and that’s largely down to the time of the narrator. Consequently, I felt that I learned nothing new about the concept of responsibility, and rather condescending to, because of the tone of the narrator. I much prefer the tone and style of “”The School of Life” videos, which I heartily recommend.
    Thanks for sharing.

      Some good points Julian. I just liked it because it was short! I’ll look up the ‘School of Life’ videos. Thank you
