Accountability is done to you. It's done by the industrial system, by those that want to create blame.
Responsibility is done by you. It's voluntary. You can take as much of it as you want.

It reminds my what I say about the difference in my blook on Conversational Leadership.
We can only choose to take responsibility for something. No one else can assign responsibility to us.
We take responsibility but are held accountable.
