Career Development Webinar Series

with featured speaker Ankit Mahadevia, Co-founder and CEO of Spero Therapeutics; Author, Quiet Leader Loud Results (Post Hill Press, 2022)

Our society typically thinks of leaders as extroverts and introverts as followers. In fact, introverts, who make up more than half of us, can bring unique strengths to leadership. Indeed, many successful business leaders drive their organizations forward without being the loudest person in the room. Too often, introverts opt out of leadership roles since they don’t look like the “typical” leader, and those that do are often discounted by the Boards and managers that evaluate them. Neither needs to be the case. In this webinar, Ankit will address:

  • The unique strengths introverts bring to leadership
  • How to apply these strengths to lead in a way true to yourself
  • How introverts can address the parts of leadership outside of their comfort zone  
  • How to lead teams that have “mixed” personalities
  • How extroverts can best work with, mentor, and lead introverts
