IN THIS ISSUE:  Speaking up at work | How millennials are impacting the future of communication | 9 Ways to become a better public speaker

Should you speak up at work even if it's uncomfortable?

As a coach who specializes in communication, I often help clients through the discomfort they feel speaking up at work.

In this week’s article, I offer you some pointers on how to best assess when and how to speak up. For example, consider the importance of the change you could make by expressing your point-of-view. Also, choose to offer solutions, not just complaints. And practice speaking up with people who'll give you honest feedback. Following the advice in the article won't only make you feel better when you speak up at work; it'll also help you communicate your value to the organization.

For many reasons, we can safely say that email isn’t going the way of the quill and scroll just yet!
