Over the last few years I’ve been lucky enough to work with people who want to stop holding themselves back. They want to start sharing their thoughts, letting people know how they are feeling about a project or suggestion and even sometimes just wanting to let their professional guard drop to give a great big smile. Its so easy to get into the habit of keeping our thoughts to ourselves, imagining that our contribution doesn’t really matter. Then after a while we realise we’ve forgotten how to speak up, so it goes on and the pattern continues.
I love this work – helping people open up – they always have something useful to share. Does this ring true for you? Do you want to change your habit and start speaking again?
