The iceberg represents your leadership. (Southeastern University)

The statement continues, “The10% above the water is your skill. The 90% below the water is your character. It’s what’s below the water that sinks the ship.”  It’s rather frightening, isn’t it? The citation continues, “Your leadership ability has the potential to carry you further than your character can sustain you.” Your integrity must be the driving force in the exercise of your skill.

People with integrity walk safely, but those who follow crooked paths will be exposed. The LORD detests people with crooked hearts, but he delights in those with integrity. (Proverbs 10:9; 11:20)
