However, I recommend that you be politically savvy and consider the consequences of speaking up before doing so. Have you thoroughly researched the consequences of your suggestion? Did you met with others for their input before the meeting? Are you trying to sacrifice the boss’s sacred cow and in a culture where that is not accepted? Are you considered an asset? Are your competitors/enemies in the room? If you are seen as a straight talking results deliverer your suggestions MAY be welcome. If not, others might object to your positive view of apple pie and motherhood.
