    Questions to Help You Measure Your Integrity

    by John C. Maxwell

    1. "How well do I treat people if I gain nothing?
    2. Am I transparent with others?
    3. Do I role-play based on the person(s) I'm with?
    4. Am I the same person in the spotlight as I am when I'm alone?
    5. Do I quickly admit wrongdoing without being pressed to do so?
    6. Do I put people ahead of my personal agenda?
    7. Do I have an unchanging standard for moral decisions, or do circumstances determine my choices?
    8. Do I make difficult decisions, even when they have a personal cost attached to them?
    9. When I have something to say about people, do I talk to them or about them?
    10. Am I accountable to at least one other person for what I think, say, do (Maxwell, 2003, p. 61)?"

    Integrity is knowing what is important to you and living your actions accordingly.
    Are you walking your talk? Are you being your word?
    Are you a person of integrity?

    Pounce on a Project IX-- 2006

    Last month our focus was cleaning up space, computers and drawers and finishing projects. The group motivation was flowing. We all felt lighter at the end of the session. What project would you like to get on top of and accomplish this month? Come to Pounce on a Project IX -- 2006. Join Coach Andrea on Thursday, October 19th, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Eastern. We will join as a group by phone and declare what you want to accomplish: completing a marketing brochure, filing that pile in the corner that keeps growing, getting your website finished, complete a client project or make cold calls.

    During the morning, the group will gather by phone a few times to check progress and get any support needed to finish with a bang. At noon, the group will celebrate their accomplishments. Who says projects have to be boring and tedious? Bring your lightness and fun and join us for the energization. To sign up or learn more, call or e-mail Andrea by noon on Wednesday, October 18th. Feel free to share this with friends and co-workers, the more the merrier. (Cost of the program is only the cost of long distance phone calls.)
