Ravenyard Priorities Assessment - Responsibility


RESPONSIBILITY - a sense of duty; possessing good judgment; the ability to act correctly and make decisions on your own; to accept moral, legal, or mental accountability (grounded, reliable, trustworthy, reasonable, accountable, dutiful).

In crisis, it is common to place blame. Responsibility means accepting consequences, cleaning up a mess, or being accountable to others no matter the outcome.

Responsibility starts by looking inward. It can mean being responsible for oneself, like avoiding self-destructive or harmful behaviors or protecting one’s well-being, health, or time, or resources.


Responsible leaders feel a sense of duty to employees, shareholders, customers, their community, and the environment. They look beyond profit and are accountable for their actions and the actions of their employees.
