An Introvert’s Journey to Leadership
Western society lauds extroverted leaders and their accomplishments. However, introverts make great contributions and can be effective leaders. Many introverts feel unsuited or ill-equipped for leadership, and are not sure how to take that next step to increase influence and improve visibility. Have you wondered how to empower yourself and leverage your innate skills to become a leader? I’ll share my personal insights and my leadership journey from shy team member to recognized leader. I’ll share key steps I took and experiences that helped me become a successful leader and discuss the steps YOU can take to become a leader.
