Course Description/Agenda

FACT: Introverts Are Often Misunderstood, and That Can Negatively Impact How You?re Seen as a Leader

Let?s face it: in general, extroverts are much easier to read than introverts. Extroverts think out loud and don?t hesitate to share their ideas without vetting them internally first. Their nature is to be bold and gregarious, even dominant, traits that people often associate with leaders.

Introverts are generally quieter and more reserved. They are less likely to put their ideas on the table until they?ve had sufficient time to think them through. Unfortunately, this can leave room for misinterpretation of the introvert?s intentions as well as undervaluation of his or her leadership abilities.

As an introvert, you need to help people understand what you believe and what you?re thinking ? it?s critical that you be seen as a leader! You can?t afford to come across as unenthusiastic or weak; you can?t afford to have others question your ability to lead. You must be on guard so you won?t be seen as ...

  • Uncaring or insensitive
  • Unable to take command and control of a situation
