8 ways for introverts to develop leadership skills
Too often, introverts overlook their own leadership potential because they’re not necessarily the loudest voice in the room.
Great leadership is about far more than volume, though, so Jordyn Cormier at Care2 developed this list to boost your confidence about stepping into the ring and taking the reins.
Follow your interests and passions. No one is going to listen to you if you don’t have passion for what you’re saying. Leadership takes confidence and inspiration. Focus on what interests you, what inspires you and follow the breadcrumbs to where the journey of discovery inevitably leads you. Read voraciously. Be a sponge of information and enthusiasm. By investing in your own passions, your energy and excitement radiates outward. That’s leadership energy.
Understand and accept your strengths. Do some deep thinking (perhaps with a journal nearby). It is important to understand what works for you and what doesn’t. Think about what areas you are strong in. Think about what areas you can improve in. Focus on improving those weakness whilst spearheading any new venture with your greatest strengths.
