The Introvert in the Workplace: Becoming a Leader and Influencer

Many introverts struggle to succeed in the workplace when asked to “think on their feet” or to make decisions without an array of facts in hand. Much workspace design is moving to open plans, where anyone, much less introverts may struggle with distractions and lack of privacy. Some introverts may look for leadership opportunities, but feel stymied when trying to figure out how to move up. Although not every introvert is interested in a formal leadership position (nor have the opportunity in their workplace), every introvert has the ability to become an influencer.

Join the presenter as we discuss how to identify our strengths and become influencers when we don’t have positional authority. We’ll discuss strategies that work for us and how to make sure we’re not passed over when leadership opportunities arise. We’ll also create an action plan for becoming that influencer or leader.

Key points:

  • The joy or leading and influencing
  • Identifying our strengths
  • What’s worked for you strategy discussion
  • Developing an action plan

Attendees will:

  • Hear and share about the value of being a leader or an influencer
  • Discover how to identify their strengths and weaknesses
  • Learn how to harness their innate skills
  • Start their leadership journey
  • Resources available

Attendees will benefit most from the presentation if they know their Myers-Briggs/Keirsey temperament profile in advance or have used other tools such as Enneagram or Strengths Finder.
