Leading others by example requires personal integrity
Integrity isn’t something you demonstrate at home and then set on a shelf at work. The word shares the root with an old mathematical term – integer. It’s a whole number. It isn’t divided.
When it comes to being principled and ethical, you are the master of your destiny. Other people and external forces might test it in various ways, but ultimately you alone control your integrity.
There are many things you can’t control. You can’t control what people say or think about you. You can’t control decisions prospective clients make. You can’t control your competitors’ marketing tactics. You can’t control the economy, the stock market or the weather.
