Do you feel like your career path or leadership effectiveness is somehow hindered by your temperament?  Are you overlooked for leadership roles because of your quiet nature? Do you feel overshadowed by your gregarious colleagues/competitors? Do you feel pressured to go against your authentic self to get recognised?

You're not alone - about 50% of all leaders are introverts, yet our working environments favour the extrovert, the outspoken, bold and assertive. These traits have changed our definition of leadership and altered our assumptions about what good performance looks like. And while many studies have shown introverts are natural born leaders, many business cultures often make it impossible to thrive.

The speaker, Faris Khalifeh, will illustrate how you don't have to be loud to be a great leader, and you can be impactful by being soft-spoken, quiet and gentle. This talk is for extroverts as well, as they can gain valuable insight into the introvert's world, allowing them to understand and work more effectively with their introverted colleagues.

Key Takeaways:

✔ Understanding of Quiet Leadership ✔ Quiet leaders traits and strengths ✔ Expose some myths  ✔ How to close the communication gap between introverts and extroverts
