Team Accountability Team Accountability Team responsibility A team, rather than the individual members assumes responsibility for success and failure Team members must feel a sense of personal responsibility for the team's work. This feeling comes from the acceptance of team membership by the individual. Within the team, accountability for individual actions is crucial. Team members must hold one another accountable. When one person contributes a lot, he or she should be recognized, and when another fails to contribute, he or she should be held responsible. For example in Family Feud when someone hears the " " that person feels responsible, but then their family forgives and keeps on guessing until the question is answered. Everyone outside of the team views the team as one entity. When the team acts, others are able to ask any team member to answer for the team as a whole. The concern of the audience is with the total team product, not with how individual team members contributed to that product. No one who watches Family Feud roots for one guy, they root for the whole family like the Johnson's or the Rodriguez'.
