Have you ever been in a meeting, and introduced an idea, then felt the urge to discount or qualify your idea with “well, that’s just my opinion”, or “just my 2 cents”? Or, do you find the need to apologize anytime you speak up or offer an insight? Please stop. If you’re in the room, you have value to contribute and you shouldn’t feel the need to apologize for your existence.
On today’s episode, I share a few ways the “apology reflex” might play out for creative pros, and how to overcome it before it diminishes the confidence of your peers and clients.
