Introverts may not be the most social individuals, but they can most certainly develop lasting, meaningful relationships. When an introvert makes a personal connection, they make sure it is not something superficial. They value deep bonds and invest a lot into developing and maintaining relationships. Although they make connections rather slowly and selectively, introverts focus more on the quality than the quantity of relationships. They take some time to open up but once they do, introverts build deep and lasting connections that are both professionally and personally rewarding. Their unique relationship-building skills makes them the perfect leader in any situation.
Introverts are perfect leaders
The best and most successful leaders aren’t necessarily the most sociable, noticeable or loudest ones. It’s time to put the myth that introverts can’t make great leaders to rest and focus on the fact that they are perhaps even better leaders than extroverts.
“So stay true to your own nature. If you like to do things in a slow and steady way, don’t let others make you feel as if you have to race. If you enjoy depth, don’t force yourself to seek breadth. If you prefer single-tasking to multi-tasking, stick to your guns. Being relatively unmoved by rewards gives you the incalculable power to go your own way.” – Susan Cain
You don’t have to pretend to be an extrovert to get everyone to notice your leadership skills. Your silence, observation, creativity, and unique thinking abilities give you an unparalleled strength and provides you an edge in your leadership role.
If you’re an introvert, then embrace your introversion, use your inherent skills and be your unique self.
You are born to lead.
