Blame is a much more emotional version of accountability. It’s usually pointing fingers at others in order to deflect the spotlight being turned on you. Often times, you’re mad at someone about something, so you make the matter worse by accusing them, by blaming them.
Accountability, however, is a much more logical, less emotional way of pointing out when a given situation or expectation was either complied with or not complied with.
Blame is a drill sergeant screaming in the private’s face. Accountability is a coach helping correct a situation and preventing it from happening again.
