Angela Hucles

As a two-time Olympic gold medalist and president of the Women’s Sport Foundation, Angela Hucles knows first-hand about the hidden power of introverts. In the world of sports, athletes train to be their best by tapping into their “inner-introvert” and finding moments to lead. The same tactic can be applied off the field. Teams in all segments of life need the special leadership qualities introverts contribute. By identifying and celebrating the hidden power of introverts, we can translate these elements into greater success in our schools, the workplace, and at home for people of all ages.
