Integrity is a word that gets plenty of air-time, but how many can offer a clear practical definition? I recently came across a simple and potent practice for fostering integrity in all of our relationships, including with ourselves. I decided to share this with a video, which offers the additional benefit of getting to see me make funny faces.

This definition of integrity mirrors the first agreement we make in our Aletheia Relational Leadership weekend — to do what we say we’re going to do — which allows us to take seriously all of the other agreements we need to make for such powerful work.

In this age of consistent deconstruction of our language, traditions, and meaning-making, it’s essential to be rigorous with our integrity in how we relate to ourselves and others. If you’re interested in learning more about the practices we use to develop our integrity this way, I encourage you to read about our Aletheia training here.
