One of our goals as facilitators should be to create settings where team members feel comfortable voicing their opinions.  

However, we must also feel comfortable voicing our own opinions. As we strive to create a sense of safety in our conversations necessary for progress, we must sometimes examine whether or not we’re speaking up when necessary or holding back.

In episode 091 of the Meeting Leadership Podcast, we bring in Certified Executive Coach Karmen Masson to discuss what stops leaders from speaking up.  She provides us with a simple 2-step approach to speaking up that will help you put divergent thinking into action.
