Ethics and integrity are essential components of character for any positive, influential leader.. Both ethics and integrity are skill sets that can be honed over time; however, it is in best practice to have them aligned with personal values which tend to be invariant. Remember the Titans, demonstrates how values can evolve. The Titans bring together a hostile torn community during the mandatory integration processes in Virginia through leaders maintaining their ethics. Not only does the movie depict values along with ethics and integrity, but it also illustrates the core competencies of this pillar.
Be Careful What You Wish For For Connie and Dave to desire to be mature and free is one thing, for them to get it and end up not wanting what they wished for is another and not knowing what to do with it is also another thing as well. Connie the main character in “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been” by Joyce Carol Oates, and Dave the main character in “The Man Who Was Almost a Man” by Richard Wright have similar hungers but have been put in different circumstances to want such liberation. Connie, age fifteen craves to be mature though at home she acts pure, “she wore a pullover jersey blouse that looked one way when she was at home and another way when she was away from home” (Oates page 5). Connie has a two-sided personality a brat at home and a loose goose at night. Not very close to her family members, she sort of ignores them and does her own thing and she also has very little conversation.

The only thing standing in the way of Nero’s control over the Roman empire was his mother Agrippina. While Nero grew up, she took the role of emperor and became the most influential and powerful woman of her time, until she was murdered by her own son. The reason Nero killed his mother is not completely understood, but Suetonius believed that his mother pestered him with “surveillance and criticism.” Other accounts suggest an influence from a mistress named Poppaea, who wanted to marry Nero against his mother’s wish. Whatever the reason, Nero did have a tendency towards paranoia and killed those who threatened, and perhaps his mother’s death is just one more incident where he let fear control him.
