Would the people around you – colleagues, neighbors, family, friends – say you live your life with integrity?

They observe your patterns – your plans, decisions, and actions – every day. They probably have an opinion about how well you “do what you say you will do” in their interactions with you – and observations of you.

When I consult with clients that want to improve the quality of their work cultures, integrity is one of the most frequently noted desirable values they want demonstrated in their workplace. It comes up every time.

What that tells me is that people aren’t living with integrity at work – not consistently, anyway. If they were, a different value would be tops on my clients’ lists of desirable workplace values.

I was interviewed for People magazine this past week, analyzing the sexual misconduct allegations of NBC’s star anchor, Matt Lauer. His predatory behavior was widely known among his colleagues.

In today’s three-minute episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I specify how each of us – individually – can live with integrity in every aspect of our daily lives.

My Culture Leadership Charge series features short (two-to-three-minute) videos that describe proven culture leadership and servant leadership practices that boost engagement, service, and results across your work teams, departments, regions, and even your entire company.

Each episode’s “charge” is a challenge for everyone in your organization – not just leaders – to refine their behaviors and ensure everyone is treated respectfully at all times.

You’ll find my Culture Leadership Charge episodes and more on my YouTube channel. If you like what you see, please subscribe!
