What is the difference between responsibility and permission?

Creativity and Innovation

Permission is given.

Responsibility is taken.

If you want to be a leader for change, and enable creativity in your teams, you need to take responsibility of what they might come up with.

That also involves taking responsibility and ownership for the impact the change might bring. Both positive and negative.

This is why so many managers don’t like being asked for permission from their staff to try something creative. What they are really being asked for is to give credit to the team or individual if the change ends up being positive, but to burden the impact if it is negative.

Yet this is exactly what great creative leaders must do.
