(pronounced PROH-buh-tee)

A noun that means decency, honor, and an observance only to the highest ethics. We remember it this way… Probity sounds like a “heavy” word to us, which makes us think of seriousness and honor. It’s a stretch, we know, but it works for us.

Example: From the way he calmed clients to the way he praised employees to the way he negotiated with contractors, Danny’s probity was impressive and apparent in every aspect of his job performance.
