Leadership 101 for Professionals (and Anthony Weiner) by Jeremy Kingsley at Fox Business on 1 August 2013
This article highlights the importance of integrity in your personal life as well as in your business life. The author commends people remember four things about integrity:
People follow people of integrity.
Leaders and companies with integrity have fewer crises than those without.
People don’t often quit on organizations, but they do quit on people.
A person of integrity knows the right thing, says the right thing, and does the right thing.”
I’m not convinced about number 4 – you may not always know exactly what to do (the world is rarely black or white). If a course of action doesn’t sit quite right with you, then perhaps it’s not the right choice and you should try to expand the possible courses of action. Personally, I use what some call the “Globe and Mail test” – would you be able to justify your actions if they were printed in the newspaper?
