Caught in the balance of wanting to be likable versus wanting to receive just accolades and rewards for hard work, it’s sometimes easier to put our needs and feelings on the backburner than to create potential conflict.

However, it’s important that we create a work environment that is positive, uplifting and empowering. The way to do this is through healthy communication and learning to speak up for ourselves and advocate for our needs.
