Lean In and Contribute

In these times, especially when we are not face-to-face for most of our meetings, it is more important to lean into your conversations and contribute something.

Contributing isn’t only talking about what you know. Rather the best contribution starts by listening to what the conversation needs. As you listen, you will also start to understand where the conversation is going. Then consider how your knowledge and experience can help the conversation, and others, get to where they are going in a better way than they ever expected.

Sometimes the best way to contribute to a conversation is to keep quiet and let others get to where they need to go. Other times it will be a shame if you don’t give people what you have and know already.

Move the conversation forward, help other people grow, lean in and contribute.
