How did you find your voice at work?

I am super direct at home, with friends, & was in the classroom. However at work, I find it hard to be vocal & confident.

Any tips on how to be a #bossbabe? Lol

I want you to remember something.... who you are and how you have interacted in the classroom and in life has EARNED you a seat at the table. Don’t forsake that now. Be confident, mature, remember that half of the communication game is listening, and use that inner voice that has made you the success that you are to speak your mind.

I recently took an excellent free online course specifically on this topic. The title of the course is HOW TO ADVOCATE FOR YOURSELF AT WORK. It's only 1-hour and has very practical suggestions.

Here's the link to the free training...

There's a few courses available. Just scroll down a bit to find the link for the class you want.

It’s also important to think about audiences. At home, with friends, in school you were likely one of the fewer “vocal and confident one(s)” - whereas everyone in this industry is like that.

How do some of your meeker friends get their ideas and povs heard by you? Literally ask them, and try those tactics on your managers and team.
