Leaders with strength of character and integrity make decisions based on personal conviction
rather than popular opinion.
Acting with a solid sense of purpose, they do what they think is right because it is right, not because it’s easy, convenient, or personally beneficial. Firm in their decisions, these leaders are steadfast, staying the course under fire and rarely giving up, no matter the personal cost.
Leaders with strength of character and integrity value honesty, commitment, and trustworthiness, and through their actions they inspire trust and loyalty in those whom they lead.
How about you, are you a leader strong in character and integrity? How can you improve and leverage your own strengths in order to become a person whose leadership is marked by strength of character and integrity? By focusing on improving and applying your leadership strengths, you can become an even more effective leader who:
- Bases decisions on personal conviction
- Acts with a solid sense of purpose
- Is steadfast in the face of adversity or opposition
- Values honesty, commitment, and trustworthiness
- Cares more about people than outcomes
- Loves the people they lead
- Leads in their home as well as they lead in business
