“In order to be a leader a man must have followers. And to have followers, a man must have their confidence. Hence, the supreme quality of a leader is unquestionably integrity.
Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a football field, in an army, or in an office. If a man’s associates find him guilty of falsehood, if they find that he lacks integrity, he will fail.
His teachings & actions must agree with each other. The first great need, therefore, is integrity & high purpose.” - Dwight D. Eisenhower.
