Is increase the feeling of being accountable a benefit of a self-organizing team?

Let's work through this.

Suppose you are a member of a team that self-organizes and which is in control of its own process. Who else, other than your team, would then be accountable for the way it works? Do you think it is a good or bad thing if team members feel so accountable?

in scrum, team is responsible for every thing, not the individuals.

No doubt, it is a benefit that team feels more accountable.

I agree, it is a benefit

As a Scrum master, how would you increase the feeling of accountability in the team? What kind of excercise is there or what kind of questions could I raise during the Retrospective to make the team aware that they are in control? Are there any ideas on how to develop the sense of control over own processes?
