Not everyone has a voice. I mean not everyone is comfortable to speak in front of a group. Some people do need to speak for others. Silence usually follows a work request at a meeting like ‘Does anyone have anything to say about this proposal?’ Use your voice whenever you can. Staff meetings, family occasions, training sessions, dinner with friends. Say what needs to be said for the benefit of all present. Put the fear to one side and speak for the group. The next time someone leaves your organisation or retires, say something that they will remember for the rest of their lives. Don’t let fear hold you back.
