Perhaps it’s not always about public speaking, but it’s certainly about speaking up more, taking more initiative, or simply not allowing ourselves or our teammates to fall prey to the common B.S., which has the propensity to rule our days and weeks. We’ve all been there, done that. It’s no fun and at some point, we recognize it’s not only a waste of time and money, but it drains us of our ability to be innovative, proactive and focus on the most important aspects of our positions, which is to provide leadership.
