“Quiet” CAN win the day!
Introverts are generally quieter, more reserved, and less likely to speak up until they’ve had adequate time to think things through. Unfortunately, in a world that frequently associates outspokenness with leadership, it means that introverts are often misjudged, or even worse, undervalued for their leadership skills. If this describes you, then it’s time to take control and change this erroneous perception. If you’re an introvert who wants to maximize your leadership effectiveness, it’s up to you to help people understand not only what you believe, but what you’re thinking. You can’t afford to come across as unenthusiastic or uninvolved; you’ll only sabotage yourself if others question your ability to lead. The good news is that you don’t have to become an extrovert in order to be a powerful leader. Introverts bring strong leadership abilities to the table; but you have to know how to showcase and use your strengths to their best advantage. And this is exactly where Merge can help!
