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


“Relationships and optics are so important in leadership and if you want to be a successful communicator and authentic you must incorporate ‘tact’ in your leadership demeanor. Displaying tact in all types of situations shows your people that you have character, you are always a professional, and you have the maturity to work smarter and harder for the team and organization. You can address issues that keep the reputation of your team and yourself intact. Tact will earn you respect and trust.” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. My deceased wife had a knack to say what Winston Churchill stated and have folks very happy for the suggested trip. LOL. I on the other hand managed to make a few enemies trying to do the same. So I decided that diplomacy would work better for me. LOL . When we look at this from a scriptural point of view, we would do much better, in my opinion. In the link below there is a music link that I think y’all would enjoy, that is relevant to today’s topic. Have a blessed day today and always.

I will plagiarize today and go wit Sir Winston today. To be honest, I couldn't find one that defines it better.
