Children are to be seen and not heard. Who in the world made this statement up?
The disservice begins here and only moves forward. Many people struggle with speaking up and asking for what they want, as well as setting boundaries.
We are going to talk about all this!
Avoiding confrontation. Dreading consequences. Trying not to offend or hurt someone. Naturally shy. Culturally sensitive. Or, just afraid to rock the boat. There are many reasons we may ‘bite our tongue’ and studies show just how often we choose to stay silent when we have something important to say:
-69% of workplace managers resist communicating with their staff.
-72% of employees say they don’t speak up at work when they feel they should.
-74% of people are afraid of public speaking.
-65% of therapists say breakdown in communication is the top cause of divorce.
My guest has lived an amazing life. Extraordinarily resilient, intelligent and definitely a women who knows how to speak up!
