The article focuses on leadership. Since leaders should demonstrate integrity in their life, they should ensure that other leaders they associate with tell the truth about things they are involved with. This is because people whom dishonest leaders work with face the risk of also being discredited. Leaders are expected to demonstrate a firm commitment to a set of ideals. They should also be able to recognize praiseworthy achievement by their people and should seek to offer praise and strengthen it.
