High Integrity Leaders: What Successful Executives See

Author: MARK L. MCCONKIE AND R. WAYNE BOSS
Published in PAM, Vol. 7 No. 4

This qualitative study reports the findings of fifty-one structured
interviews with successful business executives, asking their views on
personal and professional integrity. Nine common or shared perceptions
emerge, and center in the shared perception that high integrity people
believe truth exists and that it is knowable, that high integrity people
cultivate multiple virtues, seek goals more noble than profit-making or
accomplishing organizational goals, are governed by inner controls such as
conscience, and see integrity as “oneness, wholeness,” and not divisible into
a public and private self.
