It is a set of established values, with your actions consistent with these values. Character is what you are; reputation is what others think you are. When the values, character, and actions you present to others are consistent with your personal beliefs, that's integrity. The most important leadership principle that you will demonstrate to your leadership team and your followers is integrity.

Pretending to have and abide by a set of values that are not truly yours and putting on a character that is alien to your true beliefs is difficult, stressful, and always counterproductive. Eventually your facade will crack, revealing your true values and character. If your true character is different from the face you have presented, your leadership team will lose confidence and trust, and your followers will lose heart and belief in your vision. Consistency of purpose will establish a basis for confidence in your leadership for yourself, your leadership team, and your followers.

You need this knowledge to select the visions that are appropriate for you to pursue in your life, your organization, or your team. It enables you to understand if you can accomplish the tasks assigned to you or the vision you choose for yourself.
