Try to be a lot more opinionated today. You have so much to gain by speaking out and saying the right thing at the right time! If you have a question during the middle of a long meeting, go ahead and ask it. Don’t worry how it will sound. Chances are you’ll be asking something that everyone else wants to know, too. It’s true that stepping out in front of the crowd leaves you a bit vulnerable. But it also puts you in a leadership position.
