One career tip from a more senior person in my organization that has stuck with me is to conduct little experiments in the workplace to improve or test certain behaviors.

This person had received feedback that he was not speaking up during meetings – did he have nothing to say? Was there nothing from this team that he needed to represent? Did he have no meaningful addition to the conversation?

So he conducted an experiment and forced himself to speak first at every meeting.

Seems like a good idea – identify weaknesses or areas where one wants to develop a capability, and then experiment, practise, improve.
