Leadership Tips: Say It Out Loud

BLOG-01.28.13 Leadership Tips: Say It Out Loud - Fierce, Inc. - Fierce, Inc.

An old adage that I heard often growing up was think before you speak. This is a very valuable saying for me, because I am what you would call a classic "external processor." While that phrase has saved me from saying things that could have a negative impact, it has also encouraged me to self-edit and sometimes hesitate to voice opinions or concerns.

This week's Fierce tip encourages you to say it out loud.

This isn't about indulging in stream of consciousness, rather, it's about not over-analyzing. This week if you're in a meeting and you have an idea that you think could really move the team forward - speak up. Let go of needing to have a perfectly formed thought and allow others to influence and build off your inspiration. If your idea is met with a luke-warm reaction, don't get discouraged.

As Albert Einstein said, "If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it."
