Inspiration and lessons for your leadership journey!
“It’s a great moment when someone has character to step up and do the right thing at the right time.”
In today’s inspiring video (thank you, Sonya!), we will see an example of great character and integrity in a most unlikely venue – a championship softball game.
I wrote extensively about integrity and ethical leadership in A Travel Guide to Leadership. Below is an excerpt from the chapter I called ‘The Trust Trek.’
As enigmatic as trust, character, and integrity may sometimes seem to be, they are the heart and foundation of the leadership journey and of high-functioning teams. John C. Maxwell wrote, “Trust is the foundation of leadership. To build trust, a leader must exemplify these qualities: competence, connection, and character.” As we will see in the following pages, the research supports Maxwell’s contention. Without trust and integrity – our character, if you will – our ability to influence and lead is severely undermined.
I go on to explain the connections between trust, integrity, ethical leadership, and moral development – and how the lack of these virtues undermines any leader’s ability to lead.
Our journey is full of daily decisions that make a difference – both great and small. It’s not only the pitch and the swing that makes a home run. Learn a valuable lesson about doing the right thing from Mallory Holtman and Liz Wallace in today’s video, Home Run.
