July Attribute is INTEGRITY

I will do what is right and ensure there is no difference between what I say and what I do.
•do the right thing, even if it isn’t going to be easy for me or for others.
•make sure there is no difference between what I say and what I do.
•be consistent and true to my heart.

INTEGRITY is about treating others and yourself with respect. Having integrity allows people to make the right decisions in tough circumstances, knowing their choices will make a positive difference.

Practical suggestions…
•Say what I mean and mean what I say.
•Demonstrate strong personal ethics through my behaviour.
• Not be influenced by others to do something I do not want to do or that I know to be wrong.

Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.
