Responsibility is a key aspect of creating and maintaining a healthy, thriving workplace culture. Responsible employees elevate the team by knowing how to utilize their strengths and those of others. They also hold themselves and others to high standards, leading to great results.
But what does it truly mean to be responsible?
To be responsible is to be reliable – your coworkers and teammates can count on you. It’s being honest – people know you to be sincere and straightforward. It’s also to be trustworthy – you display integrity in how you work and the work you do.
Why Does It Matter?
Responsibility is a key driver of growth. Responsibility takes ownership of the mission, goals and strategies of the company, and ensures progress towards it through reflection and accountability. Do I know what’s expected of me? Am I achieving the expected results? How can I improve? We must know responsibility to continually progress.
As Winston Churchill stated, “The price of greatness is responsibility.”
Personifying the Trait
