Reputation is a factor that is created organically & consistently over the course of many years. Ability might get you to the top, but it takes Character & Integrity to keep you there.
As I hold and attend international strategic meeting, events, speaking arrangements, the first value that all the executives agree on is integrity and high standards. Leaders know that character, honesty and integrity are the foundations of leadership and a successful life/Business.
Leaders stand up for what they believe in, no matter the cost. And teach others to do the same. Maintaining character & Integrity are the principles of my life, and all endeavors. Warren Buffet explains it better than any of us could. “If you lose money for the firm I will be understanding. If you lose reputation I will be ruthless.
