The Quiet Revolution in Project Management

Presentation abstract

Leadership is very often associated with a strong, outspoken personality. A leader is perceived for example as a person that walks into a room and commands the attention of everybody. This stereotype is also very much alive in the Project environment. In a world where currently extraversion is the ideal, are we missing out on the introverted voices? Sparks have been lit to start a revolution, the Quiet Revolution.

In my talk, I'll challenge some myths about introverts such as “introverts are always shy” or "Introverts are dysfunctional". After reframing “introversion" with the latest scientific data and insights, five practical strategies are presented to enhance skills for project leaders and team members to operate in a evolving world that hasn’t fully accepted introverts yet.
