Leadership Quotes - Integrity

Nothing is more confusing than people who give good advice but set bad examples.
- Norman Vincent Peale on Integrity

Integer, Integrate and Integrity all come from the same Latin root meaning "whole" or "entire". The idea is soundness, unity or incorruptibility.

I believe you can't be a whole person until your actions and words line up exactly. When you try to be two things at once you will struggle and it will be obvious to everyone around you. As coaches we need to be mindful of our integrity to avoid polluting the pond.
