You show integrity when you:

  • Are truthful
  • Follow through
  • Are consistent in your behavior
  • Are discreet and keep confidences
  • Uphold unchanging principles and values
  • Always keep promises and commitments, no matter how small
  • Walk your talk
  • Don’t walk away from others’ breaches of integrity (p. 48)

 

What are additional ways you can show integrity?

By: Beth Flynn, Monday, August 18th, 2014
  1. Your philosophy of life and leadership determines the process by which you lead.
  2. Your positive attitude affects everyone around you.
  3. Your experience and past history of success provides comfort and assurance as you make decisions to move forward.
  4. When you lead by example, there is nothing your people will not do for you and with you.
  5. Your “likeability” can affect the quality and effectiveness of your leadership.  Be or become likeable.
  6. Clear communication leads to understanding and action.
