The elements of integrity – and how to keep integrity – is by knowing ourselves.

With over 70 people visiting The Voice of Bold Business in the last year, we’ve heard many experiences that point to something – a tangible quantity that exists on our periphery. Something that comes from within ourselves, yet is only as strong as others’ perceptions of us. Something we all start with and we all have. Through our choices we either keep or lose this most essential presence. Trust is a part of what I’m describing; trust, though, can be rebuilt over time. Credibility is also part of what I’m talking about; we can have a ton of credibility, or none at all – both at the same time, because of the different groups in which we participate. Jess Dewell explores elements of integrity, and the process of taking the first step in owning our integrity by deciding the values we will live our lives by.
