Take a stand!

When was the last time that you were not only a mediator, but expressed your own opinion?

Think about what subjects matters are currently being debated in your company and take a stand for yourself. Attention: You don’t have to take a position where you don’t have one. Your moderation skills are still your strength and neutrality is important. However, it is also paramount for you and your employees to know that you have opinions and foresights.

For every great idea, the opposite idea is also true.
