Leaving a Leadership Legacy - Marshall, Integrity

General George C. Marshall believed that "only by embracing candor, selflessness, commitment, integrity and courage can a leader achieve the goals of effective leadership."

"Integrity," as defined in Leading in the Wildland Fire Service, is "a measure of where a person stand in times of challenge and controversy." Integrity is a cornerstone value of the Wildland Fire Leadership Development Program.

In George C. Marshall Foundation's "George C. Marshall: Legacy of Leadership: Chapter 5 - Integrity" we see bipartisan support for Marshall and his plan to rebuild Europe. Marshall was well-trusted and supported because he "walked the talk" and denied glory of self--he was a man of integrity.
