We likely agree that integrity is a critical leadership trait. With your reputation on the line, I would argue that a leader’s integrity is so important that it needs to be defended whenever it’s threatened or challenged. As a leader, your integrity is judged on your ability to both make and keep your promises.
I always encourage comments to my posts. I’ve received these through this site, via email and personally. 98% of the comments are positive. I occasionally blog about examples of leaders who have achieved at a high level and explore their circumstances. These have triggered comments from readers who have issues with my choice of examples.
