Shy, reserved, socially awkward: These terms are often used to describe the Introvert personality type. They’re certainly not the words you think of when describing desirable traits for leadership roles. However, teaching, planning, and collaborating are considered strong leadership traits, and many Introverts possess them. Our ever-changing work environment and culture desires leaders who can manage change, take initiative, and build collaborative relationships. Introvert leaders can fill these leadership roles, not by becoming more like the socially gregarious, risk-taking Extroverts who fill so many leadership roles, but by embracing and using what are uniquely Introvert strengths. Find out the compelling–and revealing–truth about Introverts in this special Lunch & Learn event, presented by Kimberly Gates of the Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine (ULAM). Open to all, but please register here to attend.
