The best way to make money is to stop selfishly looking to make money. Instead, be trusted—by being trustworthy.

Charles H. Green

 

Making money just for the sake of making money can make us easily falling to the trap of selfish purpose. The quote above is taken from an article in Slow Leadership, describing another perspective of making money, which is the value of trustworthiness or integrity.

 

The articles emphasizes on the negative sides of sales contest. In the short term it can looks good, considerable as impressive performance, but most likely people will fall into the trap of selling for his/her own benefits.

 

On the other hand, pursue integrity to gain trust from our bosses/customers. That will benefit more in the long-term.

Most people think of integrity as being the same thing as honesty. Is the person telling the truth, can they be trusted etc. But if you think of integrity as consistency, where your actions, values, thoughts, and feelings all line up would you consider yourself to have integrity?

Some people like me, really have difficulty in telling lies, I prefer to tell the truth, even when I’m lying, all the actual facts can be seen on my face. Is that the desired honesty in leadership?
