Hi _____________ , can we talk for a minute?
I just wanted to let you know what an incredible job you’re doing, and how valuable your point of view is here. In fact, I’d really like to see you share more of it. I really want your work to get the recognition it deserves. You’re an great resource on our team, and I want everyone else to benefit from what you have to say.
I really respect your opinion, and I feel like you have a lot to contribute. Actually, at the next meeting we’ll be talking about (whatever topic), and I wonder if you’d prepare a short report to share with the group.
Note: After the meeting, thank the employee and provide some guidance on how they did. This alone will go a long way toward encouraging them to participate and helping to make them feel valued. Let them know that you hope to see more visible work from them and more proactive sharing of their work within the team.
