Got a business idea that you don’t want anyone else to steal? Yep, definitely a keeper – don’t share it with anyone else. Thought of a work-related idea that would benefit the company or your colleagues? This is a situation where you can throw the “keep your thoughts to yourself” rule out of the window. Never feel embarrassed to share your thoughts, or feel as though your ideas aren’t useful. What’s the worst that could happen? Your idea won’t be taken any further than the four walls you said it in, and so what? At least you’ve shown that you care for the company and have a desire to make a difference.
