Written communication

Introverts are usually much better at written rather than oral communication. If you’re that kind of an introvert, take advantage of it.

As an introvert, you can easily be good in self-advertising, only in a different kind of way; there’s no need for you to greet big crowds of people, all you have to do is open a word processor or an online publishing platform and start writing.

When Socializing Is A Chore
When Socializing Is A Chore

Social interaction takes up many cognitive resources and is depleting.

Studies find that extroverted behaviour makes people happier but fatigued after just a few hours....

Your Introversion Is A Part Of You, But It’s Not You

Introverts don’t like to spend their precious energy on people they don’t get along with anyway and may have a certain social group where they are as active as extroverts.

This makes the case of no one really being a stereotypical introvert or extrovert, but just a complex human being with varied behaviour.

An introvert

... is someone who enjoys solitude and focuses more on internal thoughts and feelings. 

Unlike extroverts, who gain energy from social interaction, introverts often expend energy ...

Be who you are

We really do well when we connect with others, even for brief periods. You don't need to change your nature in order to socialize more.

Instead of fighting your personality, work with it, and focus on the type and level of interactions you can do and enjoy.

Find social opportunities that work for you
  • Know your boundaries. Introverts are often not comfortable with uncertainty about when something will end. 
  • Control the setting. If going out is not easy, have people come to you.
  • Focus on activities, as a class at a local college or community center. Sometimes just being around people is enough.
  • Join a club based on your personal interests or hobbies.
  • Socialize from afar. Social media is another way for introverts to stay connected.
Introverts and authenticity
If you’re an introvert, you don’t need to change your personality to develop leadership presence. You just need to learn a few skills.
Balance

Quieter people tend to make themselves small, tight. You don't have to make yourself large, just centered.

  • If you’re standing, get in a strong stance: put one foot slightly in front of the other to avoid swaying.
  • If you’re sitting, sit so that you are able to move forward, backward, and side to side without shifting your weight, leaning on your arm, or twisting your body.
Eye contact

You may struggle with eye contact and need to learn how to focus your gaze to build leadership presence.

But controlling your gaze is not about going eyeball to eyeball. You have to try and make eye contact with each person, for at least five second.
