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


“The importance of the truth in leadership will earn you respect. Good leaders speak the truth no matter how hard it will hurt them directly or indirectly. If leaders want to build relationships and trust, then truth has to be the bedrock upon which they stand. Speaking the truth will increase a leader’s influence and reliability. A leader’s truthful words speak volumes about their character and integrity, their ability to follow through on their word, and the actions they take. Will you tell the truth when you lead?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
