Naturally I veer away from putting my hand up and contributing, out of self consciousness, worry over how I will be perceived or distrusting my ability, but I am working on that. At work I am trying to be more forthright with my creative ideas, as well as more practical solutions, if I think they are worthwhile to the business. If my ideas don’t work out at least I am really engaging. It makes work more fulfilling and enjoyable. Either way, everyone around me welcomes, respects and enjoys the contribution and dialogue of ideas that emerge.
