About this Webinar:

The ideals of leadership qualities can lead the typical introvert into anxiety and avoidance. But quiet or introverted leadership challenges the extroverted norms and expectations. Quiet leadership combats the idea that to be a successful leader you have to be loud. Quiet leadership promotes a healthy and successful working environment through modesty, humility and action, focusing on individual aspirations and talents, inspiring others through guidance and encouragement.

From this webinar, you will:

• Identify stereotypes that plague quiet leadership expectations

• Learn how to influence others without changing who you are

• Discover how to become a quiet leader that is compassionate and understanding

• Develop skills in creating work environments that are inspiring and encourage collaboration
