Dear Friend,

A trusted friend and colleague recently shared a personal anecdote with me in response to an article I posted about ethical leadership, and I felt compelled to share his story with you. For the purposes of this sequel, I’ll call him Paul. When Paul reached out to me, he echoed the idea that integrity is the cornerstone of a successful corporate culture. Without it, an organization loses its competitive advantage.

Paul noticed that, on occasion, employees found comfort in saying, “Sure, it may be against the spirit of the law, but it’s within the letter,” or “It’s so small that the governing body will never notice it.” So Paul established a norm that he felt supported his aspirations for a culture that embodied integrity. He instituted the Sunshine Rule.

Learn what that is in my latest blog.

Why you should still take days off this holiday season: It might be tempting to save up your vacation days when you’re stuck at home anyway, but getting away from work can change your perspective.
