Frustrated that your voice is not heard, you are not recognized or given credit for your work, or your ideas are being taken by someone else? Do something about it: consider the concept of amplification, a strategy in which individuals work together to ensure recognition is given appropriately and accurately.
What is amplification?-- let's consider an example. According to a Washington Post article, Obama female staffers were frustrated with their lack of recognition for their contribution and inclusion in important meetings and decisions at the beginning of his first term. To address this, these staffers utilized amplification and "made sure in every meeting that once a woman in the room made a key point other women would repeat it, giving credit to its author. This forced the men in the room to recognize the contribution — and denied them the chance to claim the idea as their own.” And it worked. At the start of Obama's first term in 2009, about two-third of his top staffers were men. By his second term, staff gender was represented equally among men and women.
This is not just a tactic to be used my women in the work place. This can be used by anybody that feels frustrated with the way in which their contributions are being recognized at work. So... how to put this in action? Start by connecting with others that you work with; share this idea and agree to jointly acknowledge each other using amplification in meetings to encourage equality and individual contribution. And then do it and see what happens. You and your colleagues will not only see a difference fair recognition. This level of support for each other will also improve teamwork support and your team's cohesion (which has some pretty great effects on performance as well!).
Simple. Effective. Try it.
