Ethics in leadership- what is your walk?

Ethics.  Simple word. Much involved in it. The last two weeks have had me in a leadership role overseeing actions, communication and ethical practices for people I have responsibility for.

One piece of wisdom and insight for all leaders to remember: we, when given a role of leadership, we serve others best when we remember first and foremost that it is us who must guide ourselves with each step, thought and action in order to help raise up others in every situation.

What we do in every situation- whether you wear the role of ‘leader’ or follower’ is felt and observed by others. They may not comment. They may not question. They DO observe and they do change their actions and thinking towards you.  Manage your own efforts and actions first, live ethically and morally. When you do, you will be able to guide others for betterment as they see you are consistent through and through.

One of my favorite quotes on Leadership ” A leader is one who may make a decision that does not get the popular vote. A true leader will stand firm on that decision because they know it’s the right thing to do.”

Do you walk with the level of ethics and integrity that you could? Do you walk with the level of ethics and integrity that you should?
