The “Colonel’s” VFV Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!

Good “Saturday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome to the weekend from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 5 February 2022!

Today’s Message is: “Mentor Day!” Why Not?

“Some of the best leaders are very strong mentors. They are found at every level within an organization, and they inspire new leaders with encouragement, respect, and willingness. As a leadership mentor you need to be available, present, listen, and believe in your role. Bring out the very best and unique talents in all the people you mentor. A mentor’s mission is to develop the next generation of leaders that will take the helm!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
