Overview

From business scandals to government corruption to questionable choices and behavior from those we hold up as examples, people have had enough. The latest series of integrity lapses has proven that our mutual success is in question unless leaders at every level of every organization, community, and family get the integrity question correct. In this heralded work, award-winning author and corporate consultant Randy Pennington shows why integrity is crucial to every leader’s success and how anyone who aspires to a position of leadership can accomplish that goal.

ON MY HONOR, I WILL lays out a straightforward approach to earning and maintaining the trust and respect of others. Pennington builds on timeless principles found in the Scout Oath to show you how to live with personal integrity; build strong relationships with interpersonal integrity; and build a foundation for success in a hyper-competitive world through organizational integrity. He combines his experience as a resource and advisor to leaders with examples from established leaders in business, government, and communities. ON MY HONOR, I WILL shows you how to:
• Identify and follow the core principles on which you and your organization will stand in good times and bad
• Earn and maintain the trust of others
• Respond effectively to questionable and difficult situations that arise
• Build a vibrant, nimble organization that is known and respected for its integrity with customers, employees, and vendors
• Nurture, grow, and influence a new generation of leaders that will be known for achieving amazing results by using its principles as a strength

ON MY HONOR, I WILL features fascinating insights from well-known leaders such as H. Ross Perot, Rex Tillerson, Judge William S. Sessions, Howard Putnam, and Jose Niño. You will meet leaders such as Judi Phares, Bill Strickland, Anne Ream, and John Montgomery who are making a positive impact in their communities and businesses without being household names. And, you will see how organizations as diverse as ExxonMobil, Johnson and Johnson, and Gerber Baby Foods earn and maintain a reputation for integrity and doing what’s right.

Here is a book that says a leader’s true strength is not in his or her position, intellect, or even determination. These are common traits in many individuals. The leaders who inspire and challenge us to be and deliver our very best are distinguished by something much more powerful: a reputation for integrity, duty, service, honor, and doing what is right. It is an intangible that must be embraced and cultivated if we are to solve the challenges that await us. If you want to become a legendary leader, start here.

Editorial Reviews

Brian Tracy
“This powerful, inspiring book helps you to develop character, strength and determination. You should read it and reread it again and again.”
Joe Calloway
"However high the stack of business books sitting on your desk waiting to be read - read this one first. Randy Pennington hasn't just given us a great business book, he has given us direction. This book helps us find true north."
Larry Winget
"At a time when integrity and leadership seem to have parted ways, Randy Pennington shows us a clear road back! This book that should be read by everyone!"
Mark Sanborn
“Leaders need this book. In an age when easy and expedient trump integrity and virtue, Pennington’s book is a refreshing reminder of what truly matters.”
Ross Perot
"Randy Pennington has 'cracked the code' of great leadership in On My Honor, I Will. He covers the broad subject of leadership without obscuring its basic elements, which are simple and long-lasting: honesty, integrity, hard work, and the golden rule.”
