“Identifying, Coaching And Developing Quiet Leaders”
Presented By: Lorraine McCamley (Boldly Quiet Consulting)
Quieter professionals are often passed over because they don’t fit the stereotypical picture of a powerful, charismatic leader. Research has shown, however, that introverted leaders are often more effective than their extroverted counterparts. In this session, we will look at the unconscious bias that many organizations have against introverts, how HR can identify high-potential introverts that may normally be overlooked, develop these introverts into authentic leaders who don’t feel they have to pretend to be extroverts, and, most importantly, coach introverted executives who may withdraw during periods of stress or change.
- Understand the challenges faced by quiet professionals
- Learn different ways to engage with and leverage the strengths of quiet professionals
- Begin the process of evaluating current policies, leadership competencies, HR processes, and other business practices that could disadvantage quiet professionals
This presentation will be interactive with both individual and group activities and discussions. Broader topics that will be touched on include diversity and inclusion (from the perspective of behavior), systems thinking (from the perspective of interactions among leaders and teams), and change management.
