If You Want People to Listen, Stop Talking
Notice when you speak up with ease and when you want to speak up but hold back. When you want to speak up in a meeting or interaction but feel the urge to stay silent ask yourself;.

Shining the light on what triggers us to fall silent gives offers freedom to choose to act differently. Share your intention to speak up and ask for help from a trusted colleague, mentor or coach rather than do it in isolation. And, if you catch yourself holding back rather than speaking up, extend self-compassion rather than harsh judgment.

Silence and powerlessness go hand in hand – women’s voices must be heard
When you want to speak up in a meeting or interaction but feel the urge to stay silent ask yourself; What is at risk for me if I speak? What are the possible positive outcomes if I speak up? Worst of all, we open our hearts to untruths, to lies. Did you catch the distinguishing factor in this sentence?

Their voices are their own, are controlled by no one else, and offer a deep sense of purpose and value to their lives. I can speak from personal experience that finding my own voice not only brought freedom to me personally, but it also gave me a sense of value and purpose knowing that it could now change the lives of others as well. Having discovered this new purpose was huge for me in regard to my own sense of self-worth which was very healing and freeing and opened up a world of opportunities that I never thought possible. Heck, I never planned to share my story with a single soul, and yet I now find myself leading a nonprofit focused on helping others do precisely this.
What’s next for the women’s movement?
Is this the result of me being heard or of me having a voice? My family and close friends played this role, and so did my counselor, Swede.
