As a Christian in the business world, are you known as a woman of integrity? In today’s world, the pressure to remain faithful to moral principles and professional standards are tougher than ever. Recently, several Christian women have contacted me concerning workplace ethics. The complaints were not about salaries, sexual harassment or promotion, but relationships. They were being challenged by bosses and co-workers to take short cuts, enter into unethical business practices, engage in gossip, or do “whatever it takes” to succeed. Each woman’s deepest desire was to remain faithful to her character, but each admitted it was difficult to know what to do and say in certain situations. Each knew her work ethic should reflect God’s character and they desired to walk as women of integrity!

Do you find yourself in a similar situation? Do you have a boss that treats you with disrespect? Are you asked to participate in the latest gossip and news? Ignore or cover up mistakes?  Are others hostile toward you because you are a Christian? Keeping a high standard in the midst of office dynamics can be challenging. Initiating a dialogue does not always resolve the situation, and can sometimes make matters worse. Whenever people work together, there will be challenges.Kathy Women of Integrity

As we mature, we realize we cannot change people’s ways and attitudes. We can only control our reaction to them.  In such moments, we need to ask, “How do I interact with individuals in my workplace?” Would my co-workers say my words and actions reflect a Christian life? Or do they see me reacting in ways that make them question my character? Ponder the questions below regarding your workplace relationships. Your answers just might change the way you react in the next situation at your workplace.

  • Am I a woman of my word?
  • Am I honest in dealing with others?
  • Do I treat others with respect? Or do I have a judgmental attitude?
  • Am I reliable or do I drop the ball when asked to do a project?
  • Do I engage in gossip/slander? Or do I refuse?
  • Do I use manipulation as a way to get promoted or even recognized by my peers?
  • Is “thank you” part of my vocabulary?
  • Do I encourage people through my words or actions?
  • Do I find ways to honor those around me? Or do I seek praise?
  • Do I extend grace to others when they do not deserve it?

As you check your motives and responses, you’ll find your days becoming more peaceful even though life at work still presents conflicts and surprises. Keeping strong moral principles and standards is not a curse. If anything, it will speak volumes to those around you. As you walk in God’s love and treat others with His respect, everyone will benefit from the life of a woman who walks in integrity!
