Integrity and efficiency are very vital for every leader and public administrator. Integrity entails the aspect of being honest and having strong moral and ethical principles as well as values in any action or processes one undertakes. Efficiency, on the other hand, involves attaining maximum productivity with minimum wasted efforts (Nicholas, 2013). Leaders who possess both Integrity and efficiency are unlikely to be corrupt because they abide by the set rules and guidelines of a given company and institution.
Through these two characters, public administrators are likely to attain more trust and faith in the institution; they lead and have more confidence in the process undertaken. The two enable the administrators to have a better relationship with different stakeholders, where an institution or company can fully utilize their potential and attain success. In the absence of Integrity and efficiency, the public administrator or leader becomes corrupt, a factor that leads to damage of relationships, and eventually, a decline in productivity.
I concur with the argument made on the relationships of these two words and their impact on the public on administrators and the workers. The post expounds on defining fraud and abuse on what corruption entails. However, I feel that the workers fail to elucidate more on corruption and its effects on leadership and a public administrator.
The post well describes the relationship between integrity and efficiency and their relation to corruption. It explains what would happen to a person who has no integrity. However, the workers should never have used such an example of President Nixon since this is a bipartisan approach that may fail to augur well with his supporters.
