Module 3

The Six Pillars of Character


PILLAR ONE

Trustworthiness


Even Small Lies and Deceptions Can Topple Towers of Trust

Towers of trust are built stone by stone, yet no tower is so tall or so strong that it can stand when lies and deceptions undermine the stones at its base.


Trustworthiness Embodies Four Ethical Principles

  • Integrity

  • Honesty

  • Promise-keeping

  • Loyalty


Trustworthiness

Integrity


Integrity

Integrity is moral wholeness demonstrated by a consistency of:

  • Thoughts – what we think

  • Words – what we say

  • Deeds – what we do

  • Duties – what we should do


What is right is right even if no one else is doing it.

What is wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it.


Trustworthiness

Honesty


Do:

Tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Be sincere.

Be forthright and candid.

Don’t:

Lie.

Cheat.

Steal.

Be sneaky, tricky or deceptive.

Honesty


So,what else have you lied to me about?

Thank you for caring

White lies often look very different from the perspective of the person lied to.

THE TEST:

Upon learning of the lie, would the person lied to thank you for caring, or feel manipulated or betrayed?


Trustworthiness

Promise-Keeping


Reliability & Promise-Keeping

  • Keep your word.

  • Honor your commitments.

  • Be dependable — do what you are supposed to do, return what you borrow; pay your debts.

  • Show up where and when you are supposed to.

  • Be prepared — do your homework and bring what you need to do your work.


Trustworthiness

Loyalty

  • Stand by, stick up for and protect your family, friends, school and country.

  • Be a good friend.

  • Look out for those who care about you.

  • Keep secrets.

    Don’t

  • Betray a trust.

  • Let your friends hurt themselves.

  • Do anything that is wrong, even for a friend or just so others will like you.
