Values and Character in Leadership by Dr Myles Munroe
Character is fundamental to effective leadership because good character builds trust, and without trust, people will not follow you. Another way to define good character is to ask what makes a person trustworthy, as we already defined that good character enables trust. Good character is not just for the noble hearted. It is a choice. In fact, it is a series of consistent choices over a length of time. Our character is formed every time we face a defining moment that challenges us to sort through our core values and principles. If we are willing to use our self-discipline and self-control to try and do the right thing each and every time during those defining moments, over time these decisions will shape our personal and professional identities. So character is not just talk. It is not just a matter of knowing who you are and what your values are. Your character -the balance of your values, virtues and vices -expresses itself through your actions. And that is the foundation of leadership.
