It's hard to know when to speak up, especially when it involves sharing something you feel compelled to share to someone that has perceived, or very real, power above and beyond your own.
I've certainly had my fair share of mistakes in this area. Now, I'm learning the balance of speaking up and remaining silent. It's art, science, and a lot of self-monitoring.
Still, this past few weeks I witnessed people that were willing to speak truth to power. Some were confident as they took the chance. Others came to the experience with great anxiety, fear of consequences, and a trembling voice.
All made a difference in their own unique way. And, most importantly they took a risk to say what needed to be said at the right moment, to the right people, and in the right way.
Some of these risks will pay off. Some will be learning moments to prepare for future opportunities.
