GBR 3 – Georgiana Kovell – Integrity in Business
We often equate integrity with morality, but Georgiana Kovell argues that there is more to it than that. Integrity involves bringing honor to your word AND operating from a place of power. It’s about taking promises seriously and taking responsibility for your current circumstances. Integrity means being complete or unbroken. And without it, nothing works.

She sees herself as a catalyst for massive change, empowering clients to achieve their soul-stirring goals and create a life they adore.

Georgiana’s Favorite Quote
“Responsibility begins with the willingness to take the stand that one is cause in the matter of one’s life. It is a declaration, not an assertion, that is, it is a context from which one chooses to live. Responsibility is not burden, fault, praise, blame, credit, shame or guilt. In responsibility, there is no evaluation of good or bad, right or wrong. There is simply what’s so, and the stand you choose to take on what’s so. Being responsible starts with the willingness to deal with a situation from the view of life that you are the generator of what you do, what you have and what you are. That is not the truth. It is a place to stand. No one can make you responsible, nor can you impose responsibility on another. It is a grace you give yourself – an empowering context that leaves you with a say in the matter of life.”
