“It’s not enough to have an opinion,” Pegasystems CEO Alan Trefler tells The New York Times. “It has to be an informed opinion.”

Leaders and managers don’t want “yes” men; they want “thought ­leaders.”

One way to bring value to your role is to offer a perspective that no one else can offer. What do you know about a workplace issue that others may not realize? What does your background and experience help you see better than others?

Bring an opinion that’s distinctly your own and that enhances the conversation.

As William Wrigley Jr. said, “When two men in business always agree, one of them is unnecessary.”
