"The most important persuasion tool
you have in your arsenal is integrity."
Get Real is the ninth in this ten-part series as a refresher or introduction to the powerful strategies in Working with Wisdom. See the others here.
Gel real. In other words, tell the truth. Do you make up excuses for not returning phone calls or missing deadlines, inflate figures or results for the sake of a sale, or come to meetings late or unprepared? When our thoughts and actions conflict with the truth, we waste precious energy and tarnish our reputation. By increasing your level of integrity in thought, word and deed, you will transform all your relationships, including the one with yourself. Here are two ways to raise your IQ.* (*Integrity Quotient)
Call to Action:
- Admit your mistakes. Although it might seem counter intuitive, admitting to mistakes builds integrity and sets you apart since so many people tend to make excuses or blame others.
- Add to your "trust account." Richard Carlson, author of the Don't Sweat the Small Stuff series, reminds us that people want to associate with people they know, like and trust. We all have trust accounts. Each interaction with someone either adds to or depletes it. It's our choice.
