The Amazing Power of Introverts, Why Quiet Leaders are So Successful!
Leaders were once chosen for their character, but today we live in an age where loudmouthed extroverts seem to take center stage in everything, including business, politics and entertainment. While the talkative, charismatic leader makes the front page of business magazines, recent research shows that successful business leaders tend to be more reserved, pensive and sometimes outright shy. Learn why your desire to spend significant time inside your own head may be your greatest asset. Whether you are introverted or not, you likely work with, know, manage or are a related to an introvert. We will discuss proven methods to better understand introverts, how to manage them, and how to get the most out of their amazing talents. If you want to enhance your leadership skills, this is a must.

The material comes from several books, primarily; Quiet by Susan Cain and Introvert Power by Dr. Laurie Helgoe, those two are the best found to date on the topic but research included MANY other books.

Don Minges will present but will have others lead the group discussions. We will have several group discussions or case studies - where the participants will hopefully provide feedback and discuss. Participation is welcome but not mandatory.

This is a repeat from a few years back, where we had a large attendance and a very in-depth discussion! Very well received!

As a reminder, you don't have to read the books to attend! Most do not, and we always have a very engaging discussion!

During this roundtable we'll:
· share our own experiences in this area in our businesses
· share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders
· share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth

Note: We are looking for people to facilitate a book discussion for 2019, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you’re passionate about and would like to share with the group. The meetings take place the second Friday of every month. Thanks!
