charlie dimelow-brown Posted over 2 years ago Do introverts make better leaders? i think if we take our social expectations of what a leader is off the table and accept that the quietness of an introvert embodies power, deep thought and careful planning and can in fact result in a great leader. There is no need for the 'gung ho' attitude and americanisms of loud brash leaders to equal a successful leader. I personally know in the past that being an introvert was seen as 'room for improvement' in a perfomance review. Thank goodness for people like Susan Cain highlighting the attributes of being an introvert - such a shame schools and industries don't think the same. It's interesting when you look at other cultures, such as Japan, where quiet resolve and calmness seem to epitomise their strength as world leaders in a variety of industries.
