So according to The Society of Human Resource Management one of the categories for key leadership competencies is leading self. One of the first pieces of being able to lead one’s self is operating with high ethics and integrity.
Absolutely critical to your success as a leader is to be conscious of your own integrity and how your reputation is everything. The fact that people are paying attention to you as a leader and your values, and how you operate in the world and your character, because if we’re gonna be successful as leaders we need to realize that it is not about our title, it is about the essence of who we are, it is about operating at the highest level possible, realizing that we are absolutely under the microscope as leaders.
