The word “integrity” has come up a lot lately for me, and not in the best light for people that I have had to interact with. There are two meaning’s that are appropriate to some of the examples like a coach shames his player because she can’t get a bunt down or because she missed her spot. Or when a parent stops talking to a coach or worse, because of play time. Worse even is when a coach uses the offensive word “retarded” and in front of other teammates to describe a kid who is not doing what the coach is asking, that is almost criminal. How about the coach who tells you she is staying then leaves the organization a month later but fails to let that organization know? Do the definitions below fit the scenario’s above? You be the judge!
• the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.
• the state of being whole and undivided.
Or in the words of Bryan Stevenson, “always doing the right thing”.
