Annual Leadership Event 

Integrity - Leadership’s Indispensable Ingredient

Ethical lapses across the cultural landscape and the uncertainties of a post-9/11 world confirm that integrity is a timeless yet increasingly timely virtue.  In a challenging but encouraging way, this topic is creatively analyzed by exploring such questions as:

  • What are the crucial components of integrity and how can it be memorably defined?
  • Why is it of vital importance to today’s workplace?  
  • How can it be maintained when those around us operate differently?  

A presentation on integrity might be anticipated to be dry, boring, or preachy, but this one is none of these!  A senior executive once wrote after the session, “Many of our members thought it an unusual topic before you spoke. They all believed it to be a vital one when you finished.” 

After attending this presentation, participants will be equipped to:

  1. Understand that integrity is more than simply “being honest” and why all four of its components are necessary for a meaningful sphere of influence;
  2. Conclude that while an effective leader must have many admirable traits and skills, integrity is ultimately the indispensable ingredient; and
  3. Focus ultimately on the two impactful byproducts of integrity that will keep one vigilant and grounded—even when the going gets tough!
