“Integrity is all about having a high level of honesty. When someone takes responsibility for their actions, you know that they are an honest person. It’s not always easy to take responsibility for things that happen, but it is the right thing to do.
People with integrity choose to do the right thing, even when it’s hard.”
Beware those who “talk the talk” and don’t “walk the walk.” The boundary of your Inner Core and Your Outer Core is like a semi-permeable membrane. Your Inner Core traits must diffuse through this membrane to be visible to the outside world. Talking the Talk means that nothing diffuses through the membrane. Walking the Walk means your Inner Core traits, your thoughts, views, beliefs, and references, diffuse to your Outer Core… what the world sees.
If you talk the talk but do not walk the walk, you are not a leader of character. You are a charlatan, you are a fraud, and you lack integrity. This is what the world sees when there is no diffusion. You are not fooling anyone. Are you really walking the walk, or just talking the talk?
