Speak up

Los Angeles Times - - JOBS -

Just be­cause you’re not high on the food chain doesn’t mean you don’t have valu­able in­sights and ideas to con­trib­ute at work. Keep­ing them to your­self for fear of sound­ing im­per­ti­nent doesn’t do you or your com­pany any fa­vors. If you see some­thing that can be im­proved or have an idea for tak­ing your busi­ness to the next level, don’t be afraid to speak up. Just make sure you go about volunteering ideas in the right way. Call­ing your boss out in the mid­dle of a meet­ing will not boost his opin­ion of you; ask­ing for a pri­vate meet­ing in his of­fice af­ter­wards to present some sug­ges­tions you have will go over much bet­ter. And al­ways frame your ideas in terms of how they help the com­pany.
