Why We Need Introverted Leaders – Keynote Speaker, Angela Hucles
The workforce has changed over the last 50 years, so our methods of reaching goals and milestones must adapt in order to continue success. How we perceive leadership and develop leadership needs to be reimagined to not only stay current but to put yourself and your company in the winning lane.
Revealing why the special qualities introverts contribute to teams is invaluable for success. As a two-time Olympic gold medalist and president of the Women’s Sport Foundation, Angela Hucles knows first-hand about the hidden power of introverts. In the world of sports, athletes train to be their best by tapping into their “inner-introvert” and finding moments to lead. The same tactic can be applied off the field. Teams in all segments of life need the special leadership qualities introverts contribute. By identifying and celebrating the hidden power of introverts, we can translate these elements into greater success in our schools, the workplace, and at home for people of all ages.
In life and in business we have moments of adversity and times we look to overcome blocks and difficulty. The answer is in the question “why”, and understanding the ways to discover and answer this question is the key to finding yourself on the other side.
