Integrity

Where Does Integrity Rank For You?

In a recent survey conducted by Team Technology, a business resource firm in Great Britain, 4000 people were asked, “What qualities in a leader would make you want to follow him or her?” Of the top five answers, four of them dealt with qualities that are acquired through education or life’s experience. These include confidence, knowledge, intelligence, and ability. But the quality that stood at the top of this list was the quality of honesty.

Integrity lies at the very heart of greatness and leadership, because everything you do and everything you will ever do, revolves around who you are on the inside. And who you are on the inside is demonstrated every day by your actions, the things you do and the words you speak. Successful people, therefore, and particularly great leaders are characterized by honesty, trustworthiness, and dealing straight with every person they encounter, no matter the situation, no matter the circumstances.

Leadership is the ability to inspire other people to follow you and to march toward a well-defined destination behind you. This means that people must be “sold” on two things before they will forsake their own pursuits and get in line behind you and your dream. First, they must be “sold” on the destination. They must believe in the objective you are pursuing. And second, they must believe in you as a person. They must believe that you are the man or woman who can indeed take them to this defined destination and that you as a person are worthy of their sacrifice. They must be “sold out,” not just to the journey itself, but to the individual who will be leading them on this journey.

So pursue knowledge. Improve your abilities. Build your confidence and your intelligence. But seek integrity above all else.

Audio Blog | Integrity with Special Guest Charles Nieman

In a world where people believe truth is constantly redefined, it is easy to fall for the lie that there is no absolute. It's takes no effort to let the current whims, the public opinion waves, and the easy road guide us wherever they may. 

Now more than ever, we have to fight the temptation to just go with the flow. Proverbs 11:3 says the integrity of the upright will guide them. To impact the lives of the people around us, we much choose integrity and let it be our compass and our guide. 

I couldn't think of anyone better to join me and talk about this subject than my good friend, Pastor Charles Nieman. Pastor Charles is a man of integrity, and his life is an example how to live and thrive with foundational, absolute truth. I have learned so much from Pastor Charles, and I am delighted to share him with you for a few minutes today. Please click play below to listen to this week's audio blog on Integrity.

Guard What's Inside

This month our focus is the importance of integrity. If you want to be great and be successful, integrity is a trait you must have, and this trait has to be of the utmost importance in your life. Every great leader will rise or fall based on their integrity.

It's my job as a coach to encourage you and to help make your success simple. Just because it's simple doesn't mean it's easy. It also doesn't mean you won't have to fight for it, but I am here to stand with you.

I want to help you this month to realize the importance of integrity and the vital part it plays in your life. I encourage you to take a few minutes and watch the video below as we begin our discussion.
