Savvy Saturday: Integrity

Integrity stems from the Latin word ‘integer’ meaning whole and complete. Integrity implies an inner sense of ‘wholeness’ and consistency of character. When you are in integrity, people see it through your actions, words, decisions, methods, and outcomes. You are coherent and consistent and that makes you, you.

It also means that people can trust you. They know what they are dealing with. You don’t leave parts of yourself behind; you don’t have a ‘work you,’ a ‘family you,’ and a ‘social you.’ What you say, do and mean is consistent. This builds confidence and trust and therefore it is often quoted that “integrity” is the most important leadership quality.

Why do we need great writers? Because they are integral in building our brand and our following. Because they help articulate our values and our beliefs. Because they help paint the vision that our followers, our tribe or our organization are working towards. They help us lead by example through articulation of our actions. Writing is a reflection of our thinking and of ourselves – whether as people, as organizations or as society.

From “The Written Word”  by Esther Clark.

Never have a meeting where two pizzas couldn’t feed the entire group.

This is Jeff Bezos’ (Amazon) ‘two pizza rule’ and his secret to productive meetings.  If the goal of your meeting is to be productive, you need to focus on less – not more.  Meaning, don’t invite more people than it would take to feed with two pizzas.

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.
