Anybody who follows my blog knows I’m interested in how introverts can hone their leadership style. If connection is the “special sauce” of leadership, then it’s essential to do so in a way that’s authentic to you. Short of a total personality change, what can reserved people do to amp up the connection?
I’ve often felt embarrassed that I tend to be introverted. When I was in grade school, friends would come over and ask me to go out to play. Some days I would decide just to stay in and read, then feel guilty about it. What was wrong with me? Was I anti-social?
