    Integrity

    As a foreman, manager, or chief executive officer, honesty is the foundation of their leadership model. Children instinctively know or easily catch their parents in exaggerations and lies. Similarly, employees notice when leaders vary from the truth and right. They catch bosses spending inordinate time with one employee, failing to notice sloppy or careless work of one or not enforcing company standards.

    Good leadership exhibits integrity. The person above the employee should be able to be trusted. At that point, the company has earned loyalty from the employees. The spirit in the company goes up two notches.

    Each of us can work at being honest. This starts at meeting not excuses of our actions. When we break our own standard, we feel guilty. We must at that time use self-discipline and change and/or make amends. As we are honest with ourselves peace and contentment returns to our lives.

    So whether we are in leadership or employee integrity is necessary to be more than we now are. Let us this day be scrupulously honest with ourselves and our standard of conduct.
