The smartest people in the workplace are those who listen intently to everything said around them, fully consider the implications for these words, and then only finally add their own input when they know the full implications of their own voice.
The workplace is full of bluster and workers shouting over each other to be heard and the result – generally – is simply white noise to those who matter. Being known as someone who will weigh in on any issue at the drop of a hat is never a good thing, as no one will ever add weight to your opinions or insights. The phrase ‘the smarter you become, the less you speak’ has survived decades for a reason.
