Accountability is the willingness to stand in responsibility for every choice. It is acting with integrity, doing what we say we will do. When we make a mistake we do not seek to hide it or avoid it. We have the courage to face it willingly. We are open to the lessons it can bring, and ready to make amends. With ac-countability, people can rely on us, because we are answerable for our actions. We appreciate both the good that we have done and the good to be gleaned from the choices that do not turn out right. We are guided by our highest standards.
