When you’re consistent, honest and do what you say you’re going to do— the people you lead will start to take notice. 

This episode is the fourth installment in my Leadership Lesson series. It is a collection of insights gained while reliving the stories from my father, Ermon K. Jones’ fight for civil rights. These lessons and more are documented in our book, Justice on the Jersey Shore. 

In this segment of the series, hear why integrity and credibility are two absolutely essential ingredients for meaningful leadership. I share how my father set a standard for credibility in our New Jersey community- becoming an advocate that could always be counted on. Hear how you can start to focus on what’s most important in your relationships as a leader: keeping your word. 

Key Takeaways:

  • What it means to be credible as a leader.
  • How politicians can lead with integrity.
  • Ways credibility will help you as a leader.
