– build clearer opinions as to the competencies and capabilities of your colleagues as well as organization direction.
– increase your productivity by utilizing the information gained from your increased knowledge about the business and your colleagues.
– influence decisions that your colleagues are considering by sharing information, opinions, and thoughts.
