The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.
Integrity is a concept of consistency of actions, values, methods, measures, principles, expectations and outcomes.
In western ethics, integrity is regarded as the quality of having an intuitive sense of honesty and truthfulness in regard to the motivations for one's actions.
A moral virtue that encompasses the sum total of a person's set of values and moral code.
A breach of any of these values will damage the integrity of the individual.
Integrity comes from the Greek words ‘integritas’ and ‘integra’ meaning whole.
In today's world, this word has been largely forgotten. We know it's missing in today's political climate, and it is not being taught in business school. I'm not even sure parents talk about integrity with their children.
I'm alternately disgusted and deeply angry that integrity is not valued or honored in the corporate world.
I've watched people viciously attack someone's character, make false statements, and pin the blame on someone else in order to advance their own agenda.
I'm not naive, I've been working for many decades, but I can honestly say that in a field where we used to work as a team, where we had each other's backs, is now tainted with corporate greed and big business mentality. Every person out for themselves- step on someone else's back as you scramble to the top of the heap. Someone else standing on your hill? Push them aside by undermining their efforts, question their dedication, destroy their reputation- hey, all is fair in the name of business.
Sick building syndrome takes on a whole new meaning today.
Integrity: It enters into any aspect of one’s life. It’s belief system without faltering no matter how dangerous, how unpopular the person makes themselves to others. ..
