Earn with integrity, spend with compassion.Radhanath Swami
In looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence, and energy. And if they don’t have the first, the other two will kill you.
Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn’t blow in the wind or change with the weather. It is your inner image of yourself, and if you look in there and see a man who won’t cheat, then you know he never will.
-John D. MacDonald (Novelist, 1916-1986)
The mastery of integrity comes down to three things: being authentic with yourself, being authentic with others and doing the things you have said you would do.
-Dr. Gay Hendricks and Dr. Kate Ludeman
When you sacrifice your integrity, you erode your most precious leadership possession.
I don’t like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: “Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team’. What you should tell them is, ‘May be not. But there is an “I” in Independence, Individuality and Integrity”.
