  • 1.  Integrity...OK...Let's try this angle...5 mins 26 seconds

    Some folks emailed me and were looking forward to watching and reading (but not necessarily posting) about integrity.  So when I pulled the plug on the discussions I was hoping to have on there are very clear reasons the concept and our ideas of integrity are important to us as compliance my opinion...some folks asked if I might reconsider.

    So here's a compromise. Check out the video at the link below.  Post onlist what if any ideas or thoughts came to mind when the speaker talks about integrity.  NOW...don't simply echo what you heard or saw in the video...but internalize it...process it...relate to it...and share what comes to mind.

    Ask yourself...and if the answer is nothing, so be it...but ask yourself as you watch and listen to the video the following question:
    "I just heard the speaker mention/say/describe ___________________.  Why was it about what was shared that made me take note."

    I'll circle back later tonight and see what we as a group come up with.

    ​Thanks Frank and good morning.  I enjoyed this video.  I raised my hand.  I don't think the road to humility and integrity has an end point and I always toggle back and forth dependent on the situation.  I don't know if other people find it a choice, but I think I have to choose sometimes.  Choose to do what is right, like wiping down the counter in the restroom at work.  Why does it always flood? 

    I try to align actions with beliefs; however it is sometimes difficult when handed down a decision that I don't believe wholly in and then pass it downstream. What spoke to me was the reference to social media and postings, do we post what our life is like or do we post what we want our life to look like.  Is it wrong that I have a bunch of pictures of my kiddo crying and angry with me on social?

    Hoping we can revisit the conversation live.  I wonder what that would have been like.

    I agree Melanie, I would love to see what a live discussion would be like. I think we all face a daily choice, not only in our personal lives, but certainly in Compliance, to take the high road. Maintain integrity in all that we do. Not always easy, and not always accepted by others.

    This is a great video.  Thanks Frank for bringing it to our attention.  There are definitely times that I think twice about a decision when someone is trying to tell me the answer should be something different that what I believe.  I tell myself I have to stay true to what I believe is the right thing to do in situations - whether it is the legal or ethical thing to do.​

    When he talked about wearing masks, I think we all do somewhat to fit different situations. I have tried really hard, though, to make sure that my underlying integrity remains no matter what face I show to the world at work or with family, etc. The mask is what people see or think they see, but integrity is what is on the inside and is reflected in my actions. No matter what mask they see, if they know me, they should recognize that I have integrity, which, is probably why they gave me the job I have.

    I took away the statement that humility is not thinking less of yourself, rather it is thinking of yourself less. Seems so obvious, but I would never have come up with those words.  Simple but powerful.
