The Six Pillars of Character

pillar one
PILLAR ONE

Trustworthiness

slide3
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.

slide4
Trustworthiness Embodies Four Ethical Principles
  • Integrity
  • Honesty
  • Promise-keeping
  • Loyalty
slide6
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
slide7
What is right is right even if no one else is doing it.

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

slide9
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?
