August 24: Speaking Up at Work

August 24: Speaking Up at Work August 24, 2013

It might seem hard to excel on the job if you’re not outspoken.  But Wendy Gelberg, author of The Successful Introvert: How to Enhance Your Job Search and Advance Your Career, tells us how to go from shy to shining at work.

▪ Set meeting goals.  Review the agenda in advance, and be   prepared to contribute one idea, comment or suggestion.

▪ Speak when you can.  If a meeting setting proves too intimidating, ask for some one-on-one time for post-meeting feedback.

▪ Talk yourself up.  Know that there’s a difference between bragging and self-promotion.

▪ Write it down.  Keep a log of your achievements.  Refer to it at promotion time.

Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.  (Proverbs 16:3)

Bless the work of our hands, Lord.
