When it comes to decision making and acting on it, I reflect on the choice I am making and check whether it harms or hurts me or harms or hurts others on a small scale or on a large scale.I own my ownership for my action. In that way I am responsible and accountable for my decision and action.
When it comes to group decision making and acting on it,, I participate in it with and open mind and with an open heart. This process is very helpful as we invite everybody to have their say in arriving at a decision and acting on it. In this case, the ownership and accountability belongs to the whole group. I use this approach in my class room when an issue has an impact on everybody or somebody in the class or beyond the class. I use Socratic dialogue and dialectical approach for exploring ways and means for tackling the issue and arriving at a decision by consensus.I find this approach very fruitful,
