Integrity is…

I was honored to be invited to be one of the Coaches who took part in the “Above Board” Chamber of Florida‘s panel discussion “How to be a Better You in Business.”  

One of the questions asked related to how the word “integrity” is being used so loosely and has become a “buzz word” in business and networking.  My response ended with, “when your actions and behaviors are consistent, ultimately those “acts” will tell the story, for better or for worse.”

Integrity is something you are, it is not something you consider. You either have it or you don’t! Speaking the word doesn't afford you the opportunity or benefit to be considered a person of integrity if your actions, behaviors and spoken words are not consistently in line with integrity itself!

Taking it one step back, integrity is a integral key of leadership.

Leadership is a state of being, it’s not an “act”

Leadership is a mindset, it’s not a position.

You can’t “act” like a leader, you either are or are not. If your actions are not consistently in alignment with that of a true leader or who you profess to be for that matter, the breakdown/conflict will occur and it will be obvious to those around you.

Everything rises and falls on leadership. Credibility is the foundation of leadership, so if you say one thing and “act” another, eventually you will reveal your true self and no one will believe in you or your vision.

In truth, the word integrity is only a word  when used as a “buzz word”.  Anyone who uses the word loosely in conversation is most likely trying to convince others of their own perceived integrity. Those with integrity, don’t have the need to talk about it or declare themselves as a person of integrity; they silently live it in their daily words, actions, behaviors and interactions with others.

True leaders know themselves and their potential. They consistently grow themselves and recognize we are all a work in progress!  Most important, true leaders consistently serve to grow others, therefore, their strength is in enriching the lives of others.

Last and certainly not least, without integrity there is no leadership.

Therefore my friends, integrity is by far not a “buzz word”,  it is something you are and live daily or you can strive to become at all times!
