I did this series last year on leadership.
God is leading me to repost it.
There is 8 things you need to do to regain your advantage in leadership

1. Maintain integrity

“to be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; credible we must be truthful.”

Edward Murrow

Our character and reputation are on the line daily. We must do whatever it takes to not put ourselves in jeopardy.
Being a leader means that we must sacrifice ourselves for the good of our team.

Maintaining our integrity means that display it by our actions and choices, not just by merely saying a few words that sound good in the ears of our listeners.
We must maintain focus on the desired goal of our organization, despite the obstacles and temptations that come up.

There may be challenges concerning personnel or cashflow.
You may even be tempted to cut some corners.

You don’t have to lie. You don’t have to cheat.
You can do things the right way.

The people that you lead should be able to see a clear example of integrity in all situations.

Your example shines the light on the path to greatness.
