Do you often find yourself side-lined in meetings?

This episode is about helping you to take a key role in meetings (even online), to be a contributor, to get your voice heard.

So if you feel afraid like you have nothing to offer, think again, your perspective, whether it’s feasibility, to flag challenges, or contribute to the solution someone believes you are important enough to be invited.

Someone believes you are important enough to be invited.

Ok so be honest how many of us, give up our seat for someone? Or allow ourselves to get cramped into a corner.

Online when we sneak in late, quietly with the camera off we might as well be sat in the corner again.

Yet there are some very simple adjustments that can radically change the role you play, and influence you have.

If you find the meeting a daunting place, use the time before to get prepared, look at the agenda and get clear how you can contribute.

Time for honesty, how many of us sit quietly waiting and waiting until someone asks us for our opinion? But before you could speak someone has your idea and has taken credit for it.

Next time get in early with your thoughts, use positive language, such as ‘have you thought about x’.

Always face the camera or your audience looking at the room to gain engagement. Building allies and teammates in the process.

After repeatedly being asked to note take, I became so conscious of this and noticed many colleagues barely wrote a single word. So I closed the book and took on a role as an active participant in the discussion. I switched from frantic notetaker and saw a huge shift in the influence I had.

Ever heard of the ‘Power Walk’ Or the ‘Power Pose’? Studies have shown that after just two minutes of standing in a ‘Power Pose’ you can change your feelings, to become a more confident version of yourself. Next time you’re about to head into a meeting, give it a try and let me know how you feel.


If you find this subject fascinating then check out the book 101 unconscious mistakes women make, many of these are so ingrained by stereotypical norms we live by even today.

Tell me what would you add to this? And when you’ve given these a go, how did it help you to feel?
