“Lebron James, Kevin Durant, Coach Mike “K” Krzyzewski, and the whole group of superstar NBA players voted integrity as their core value. Integrity proved to me that it does deliver the best, gold-medal level workplaces. We won four consecutive Olympic Gold Medals when I chaired USA Basketball. I can tell you firsthand my teams won and made America proud with world-class behavior because they voted integrity the number one team value and consideration,” said Colangelo.
Integrity Summit was founded and launched in 2011 by Jerry Colangelo and his consultant, TV producer and dear friend Gregg Ostro. The two were speaking on integrity in 2010 at multiple universities and were shocked to see that more than 90% of 1,200 graduate business students raised their hands to express that cheating was seen every day in grad school and work.
Colangelo challenged Ostro. “What are we going to do about this integrity problem?” Ostro had the vision, and the plan and answered Colangelo with Integrity Summit—leaders showing other leaders and their teams how to make integrity at work understandable, visible, inspiring, a badge of honor and the most overriding consideration in all workplace choices and decisions.
“Without integrity, you can be sure a workplace is under-performing because it’s almost always a place of unhappiness, disrespect, harshness and little trust. In contrast, if you make integrity dominant, you’ll have a happier, more respectful, more committed, highly productive team,” Ostro explained. “The remarkable leaders who walk the talk of integrity at Integrity Summit 12 will prove and show how integrity equals best workplaces,” Ostro added.
