Make Yourself Heard

“Genius is the ability to put into effect what is on your mind.”
– Scott Fitzgerald

In the business world, making yourself heard among coworkers is essential for creating and maintaining a happy and healthy career. While some of us find this skill simple, others struggle to accomplish such communication skills. Take the time to understand the importance of your personal value by making yourself heard in the workplace.

Depending on your personality style, asking intelligent questions is a great way to get started on making yourself heard. In a meeting or group gathering, asking questions shows you are engaged and interested in the organization and want to get ahead. Asking questions also provides you the opportunity to communicate with others outside of your department.

Believing in yourself and communicating positively is key to making yourself heard. When nerves kick in, it’s common for people to show unconscious speaking habits like fear, negativity, or doubt. Take a step back to refocus your thoughts and communicate confidently.

In every industry, professionals often struggle to get their voices heard over the massive amount of thoughts and opinions of others. Learn how you can improve the personal communication skills to help boost your career and make yourself heard.
