Use It or Lose It: The Value of Your Voice in the Workplace

Andrea Kay believes in an article for USA Today that your voice has power. It has the power to speak up and ask elephant-in-the-room questions that could save a project, and it has the power to earn you the credit you are due for your hard work.

Speak Now or Forever Hold Your Peace

When your only reason for not speaking up is to dodge office politics, all you are doing is undervaluing yourself as someone who never makes waves. Are you smart and committed? Of course, but how is anyone supposed to know that if you do not show it? When you establish yourself as someone who gives honest and polite opinions, then employers will look forward to hearing your take on matters—a sure sign of someone on the way up in the business. For elaboration on these points, you can read Kay’s full article here: http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/money/jobcenter/workplace/kay/story/2012-02-13/express-your-ideas-at-work/53061046/1
