Integrity

Integrity - adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty.
Sometimes when people are in the spotlight, the details are difficult to see. Like stage actors, their costumes may appear to be beautifully tailored, but in reality, may be hot-glued together.
Like a politician holding up family values, while taking care of a pregnant mistress.
Like a leader, recruiting for company B while dishonestly collecting a leadership check from company A.
We put people on pedestals and sing their praises, but do we really know who they are? Do their actions really go with the hype?
If you are a leader, ask yourself, "Are my actions moral, ethical and honest?"
