Winning with Trust, Honesty and Integrity

Let’s face it…working with honesty and integrity is everyone’s responsibility at every level…all the time!

When people help create or build a solution they think is “right” with people they trust, it is far more likely to be a solution that lasts and offers a bigger reach.

Daily choices of Wintegrity build your ability to face even the toughest trials. It takes intention, discipline, and sometimes courage. Determining the ethical course can be, by its very nature, difficult. Taking a stand and speaking out about or avoiding wrongdoing is not always easy but can make a significant difference in your organization and your life.

Based on her  book, Wintegrity, this upbeat and energetic program will show you how to:

  • Make daily choices of integrity
  • Take a stand and speak out about wrongdoing
  • Ask for help and build trust when in doubt
  • Practice respect and responsibility
  • Just say no to excuses and unacceptable behavior
