What is Integrity?


I often think of integrity and who it relates to leadership and management. Integrity is the one thing that will hold a team together and keep them moving forward with success or the very thing that causes failure, unhappiness, discontent, and failure.  If you don’t have integrity, you don’t have anything.

Integrity doesn’t mean you walk on some kind of moral high ground looking down on everyone else.
