To never lie, cheat, or steal is to live a life of which you can be proud. Even more extraordinary, however, are people who relentlessly question their own integrity, and close those integrity gaps. This is self-awareness.
This document contains stories of people being honest and of failing to be honest. (The titles next to people’s names are their titles at the time the story occurred and may not be their title currently.) Discussing diverse situations in which people failed or succeeded to live up to their values often helps people to recognize and act on other opportunities when they arise. By discussing these stories in meetings, on teams, over internet or intranet forums, or in classrooms, groups can come up with ideas for leading with exceptional honesty, learn each other’s perspectives, work through disagreements, and generate ideas. The teaching note is included.The “What Would You Do” Tool-Leading with Integrity in Remote Work
