Every part of the body depends on the truthfulness of the neuron, and when it loses its wholeness, the parts of the body become their own separate entities and, at some point, lose their ability to function completely. Just like neurons, the leaders around us can lose their integrity. When they lose the ability to function well and with complete truthfulness, the different parts of a group fall apart. Integrity is what makes a leader. Leaders are not complete without integrity, just like the body is not complete without working neurons. The integrity of our leaders must remain strong, in order for the body to function well.
