5.9 Accountability

Course Overview

In this course, we will look at accountability: the different types of accountability, why they are important and how to cultivate them. Accountability means we are responsible for our actions, our choices and their consequences. In a group, we can be accountable to each other, and alone, we are accountable to ourselves.
