Learn innovative approaches to developing and delivering a high-impact learning series for introverts. 

Many companies are missing out on capturing the strengths of a significant portion of their employee base – introverts. This session will show you how one major organization has taken a proactive approach by changing their culture to be more inclusive. You will learn about the targeted programs they have for introverted leaders and how this has increased the power of introverted leadership and raised the profile of introverts across the organization. This session will show you how to:

  • Position introversion in your organization as a key element of diversity.
  • Train introverted leaders in your workplace as a vehicle for cultural change.
  • Educate and motivate leaders to recognize and address the needs of introverts.
  • Get the best out of introverts in your organization.
