Put Your Hand Up

Integrity is easy to maintain when everything is going well. It's when you hit adversity that the real measure is made.

"Integrity is what we do, what we say, and what we say we do."
- - Don Galer

What we do:
  • It is how you show yourself. Your body language and how you operate.
What we say:
  • It is how and why you say things. It is a measure of exactly what it is you stand for and what exactly comes from your mouth.
What we say we do:
  • Do the actions stand up to the words? Is there tangible evidence of acting how you sound like you want others to act. Do we really walk the walk?
Integrity is the act of walking the walk. It is the opportunity to put your hand up when a mistake is made and take ownership of the problem. It is doing exactly what you said you would.

Do you have the integrity to stand behind your faults? Change happens when you can find the answer to that question.
