Popular personalities such as Bill Gates, Abraham Lincoln, Audrey Hepburn, Larry Page, and Albert Einstein are/were introverts. And, yet have created a mark of their leadership in this world. Let’s challenge the widespread perception that only extroverts can lead and focus on the quiet strengths that introverts hold to their core. The ability to process overdose of information because they are analytical and deep thinkers, the ability to grasp from their surroundings because they listen, and the ability to be thoughtful because of their patience, are all qualities of introverts that most definitely make great leaders.
In this session, I will discuss how some of the core qualities of an introvert can be channeled to demonstrate effective leadership. This will be followed by a break out session, where the attendees role play to solve real life, team-related situations as effective leaders, introvert or not.
