Every office comes with its array of personality types. Most commonly, extroverts are the leaders and take charge on projects, while more introverted peers tend to take the back seat and tend to not seek out leadership opportunities. However, this does not always have to be the case. Are you an introvert? This session will teach you how to overcome the stereotype and realize your full potential as a leader. What would happen if all companies were led by introverts instead of extroverts? This session will outline how personality type and leadership do not need to go hand-in-hand. Explore the small but impactful changes you can make in communication and process to ensure you can excel to your fullest potential.

At the end of this presentation, the audience will have a custom toolset to grow leadership skills for self-realization.

    Lisa, sounds like an interesting session. I'm super curious how you'll get through all of that in five minutes!
