Owning your voice and speaking up decreases the chances for miscommunication to take place because other people aren’t forced to assume what you’re thinking. Verbally expressing ourselves also allows us to maximize opportunities and embrace our self-worth. However, speaking up shouldn’t only be used to discuss things we’re unhappy with. It should be something that used to praise and encourage others as well. The goal of this episode is to encourage everyone to own their perspectives and not be afraid to share that gift with others.
