About a month ago I made a blog post about three perspectives on living with integrity. I believe integrity is very important. Integrity is essential if you have any leadership position.
3 Perspectives on Integrity
- Integrity with others. When you tell the truth with others people respect you. If you lie and you get caught in your lies people lose trust in you. Your word is your bond.
- Integrity with yourself. Same with other people if you lie to yourself you will not believe yourself. Tell yourself that you are going to start working out and then you do not work out, you are not going to believe yourself the next time you tell yourself you are going to work out.
- Integrity with how you feel. When you are not in integrity with your emotions people just do not trust you. They might not be able to put a finger on it, however they will just feel that you are untrustworthy.
Develop these three integrity perspectives and you will become a natural leader.
How are you out of integrity with yourself? What action are you going to do to correct it?
