You will learn how introverts can amplify your natural strengths to lead and influence. 

In our extroverted business culture, it is easy for introverts to feel excluded, overlooked, or misunderstood. Did you know that introverts often make the best leaders? This session will draw upon stories and research to demonstrate how introverts succeed as leaders by building on their strengths, not by changing who they are. You will learn about the common challenges introverts face at work, such as people exhaustion and perception gaps, as well as a straightforward four-step process to master typical work situations such as coaching, managing up, public speaking and much more. This session will teach you to embrace your natural work style to advance your career, get the most out of the people around you, and add value to your organization. You will learn:

  • The unique strengths of introverts.
  • Five challenges of introverted leaders.
  • The four P's process (Prepare, Presence, Push, and Practice).
  • How to create an introvert-friendly work environment.
