You may have a boss. You may have a manager. You may have a team leader that you need to report to. But just because you aren't "the boss" doesn't mean that you don't have good ideas to contribute to the company. Good managers and leaders listen to, and value the input and suggestions of their employees. But all too often, despite a leader's willingness to listen, this message has not been relayed adequately to the employees. As a result, employees are often hesitant and/or afraid to offer suggestions or to open up with their ideas.
