May/June 2013 As an educator, if I can only teach one value, that will be integrity. If you have integrity, all other goodness will follow. Integrity means doing the right thing at all times and in all circumstances, whether or not anyone is watching. However, in a competitive society where results are everything, when nobody is watching, the stakes are high or when “everyone is doing it”, will you still do the right thing? Being dishonest may help a person attain the result he wanted, that momentary result comes at an incredibly high price with far reaching consequences. Never underestimate the value of integrity. For employees it means a superior that is willing to trust them with additional responsibility and growth opportunities. For companies it means loyal and trusting customers that bring them more business. For you it means having an army of people that are willing to go the extra mile because they know that you are the person to trust. It takes years to build a reputation of integrity but only a moment a weakness to ruin it. Start building your integrity. Have the moral courage to do the right thing. Avoid those who are not trustworthy. Do not make excuses for acts of dishonesty

As Albert Einstein so aptly said, “Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters”. Let us start building our valuable asset of integrity from today, starting with the small things.
