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

Today's Message is: "Rational Day!" Why Not?

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

Good “Sunday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 4 September 2022!

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

“Can rational leadership and emotional leadership exist together? We expect and train leaders to make rational decisions and at the same time we want them to have the emotional intelligence to appeal and motivate the people they lead. The two can coexist, but leaders should stay away from making decisions based solely on their emotions. They need to make rational decisions based on the facts and the best information gathered within the time allotted. The best leaders will surround themselves with subject matter experts who can provide the facts, assumptions, and skills to allow rational decision-making leadership! Can you balance emotions and rationale as a leader?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
