The most crucial value in a leader, employee, employer and any human being is integrity and Warren Buffet was right when he said “You’re looking for three things, generally, in a person, intelligence, energy, and integrity; and if they don’t have the last one, don’t even bother with the first two.
For this reason, the sole #examsgrade I have posted – and will ever post – on my LinkedIn profile from my #education and #qualifications journey is my GRADE A from The Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (The CISI) #integritymatters #ethics and #integrity test which I sat in 2014.
I can proudly say that’s my greatest academic accomplishment ever, & a resounding message to any employer that may consider hiring me, that I am flexible regarding many things, with the exception of my personal #integrity, #values. and #ethics which extends beyond any corporate #valuesstatement or #codeofconduct I may be required to sign.
Integrity may not pay in kind, but it does pay with time.
Everyone truly has a price as they say. Mine? A solid six hours sleep at night without having to fret over what #ethical compromises I may have made during the daytime.
