Teams are assembled to bring together diverse thoughts to ensure the best outcome. Yet so many sit silently while disagreeing with or questioning an idea in their minds. It is a normal reaction to follow the crowd or follow authority. But be a star and decide to be the one who stands out and saves the team from disaster.
With innovative ideas sought after by executives there will be an even greater need for confident individuals to question ideas, ask for clarity or present opposing information. Call on your stellar communication skills and inject your comments into the group process.
If you wish to test your idea meet with the team leader to discuss ahead of time. This will elevate your confidence to present a new idea, remove any anxiety of potential feedback and give you the opportunity to ensure you present with clarity.
Those who stand out experience career success.
