Most of my life, I have been told I have something to say about everything. In some cases, this was said with admiration. However in others, it was quite negative. Nonetheless, I often have an informed view and people listen. Some times they even act upon my words. All in all, I am pretty happy about this. So when I work with my clients and find them hiding their true selves behind roles, titles, company names, techniques, technologies, methodologies, and what have you I am surprised.
Truly, I want to hear what you have to say. I love to listen to well formed thoughts. I enjoy having my views challenged even more. How else can I progress? How can you progress?
More fundamentally, if you want to start or grow a successful business or career you must be able to make yourself heard. You must come to the table with your own point of view. This is your opportunity to differentiate yourself from your competitors and convince clients of why they should hire you.
Please. Speak up.
Your community is listening.
