More about Introvert and Leadership
About 50% of all leaders are introverts, yet our working environments favor the extrovert, the outspoken, bold and assertive. These traits have changed our definition of leadership and altered our assumptions about what good performance looks like. Also, while many studies have shown introvert people are natural born leaders, many business cultures often make it impossible to thrive. The speaker will illustrate how you don't have to be loud to be a great leader, and you can be impactful by being soft-spoken, quiet and gentle.
This talk is for extroverts as well, as they can gain valuable insight into the introvert's world, allowing them to understand and work more effectively with their introverted colleagues.
✔ Understanding of Quiet Leadership
✔ Quiet leaders traits and strengths
✔ Expose introvert myths
✔ How to close the communication gap between introverts and extroverts
