Please give me some tips to help me stand up for myself when I am 'talked over' at a meeting.
Yvonne's top 3 tips / strategies.
1. Do your homework / preparation - this builds your confidence - a must to stand up for yourself and ideas. So know and believe with certainty that what you say is important / beneficial / will get results / save money . . . and will get you a hearing.
2. 'Stand up' literally to have a greater impact and presence.
3. State clearly and assertively, (choose one ) I feel . . . / I believe . . . / I must bring to your attention . .
Love to hear of your successes.
