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

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 — 10 December 2022!


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


“Great leaders pull by inspiring others to reach their highest potential or push them with motivation to achieve results. Leaders can only push people so far, but it can be a long way when you have total respect from those you lead. When leaders pull people will listen, they feel valued, and they have trust in their leaders. The most effective leaders know when to pull and when to push. Do you push others to be better or do you pull them when they believe in your leadership or do you use both?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Interesting topic today. Need a little of both to be an effective leader, but the best ones I've known are heavy on the pull side.

Thank you Jack! The pull type of leadership has heelped me throughout my career and there is a time to pull and there is a time to push. Both can be effective if you've earned everyone's respect and trust. Have a an awesome day my friend.
