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

Good “Thursday!” Morning “Band of Brothers & Sisters,” and all great connections. Welcome from the “Colonel’s Foxhole” in The Woodlands, TX — 5 January 2023!

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

“Leaders should never over explain themselves. A leader’s explanation, answer, or statement is more than enough. What’s most important is a leaders’ actions. Many times leaders don’t want to be judged and they want people to understand where they are coming from. Don’t over explain your decision and devalue what is being said as a leader. Are you comfortable with your silence, value your own thoughts and decisions. Give yourself permission to trust your own voice and lead with your actions, not explanations!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs
