Jennifer Mejia,Talent Acquisition Specialist and overall rockstar shares a tool that has helped her be successful in her career.

As an introverted personality, it has been difficult for her to find her voice. She describes the importance of owning your power and understanding if you are sitting at the table, you have earned a right to be there.

What can you apply today?

1. Replace the phrase, "Let me talk to my boss" in email or in person with, "Let me get back to you."

This simple technique makes YOU the source of information. This will teach others to trust you, instead of feeling like you are a buffer between the person they should be talking to. The fact that you need to talk to your boss to get information is not relevant.

2. Don't C.C. your boss on emails.

The message your sending is small, but impactful. Your leader being cc'd on an email begins to train your recipient that this message only carries weight because their name is attached to it. You give away your power.
