10.20.11 Tip of the Week: Say It!

In meetings it’s easy to judge/vote on what your about to say then choose to be silent on the matter…think again.

Often in my executive development coaching work I find it’s more important for executives to say what they are thinking versus remaining silent.

Even if you are off base a bit you will mutually discover it by engaging versus running silent. Remaining passive and neutral can do more damage to the communication/collaboration than good.

You’ll also avoid the “what if” scenario that could occur later on if you don’t get the results you wanted.  “What if I had said something…”  So next time…say it.  And let me know how it goes.
