Can this young introvert be a good leader?


Of course we have great introverted leaders all around us, in business as well as politics. Listening to others and understanding what’s going on and what needs to be done are lot more important than speaking the loudest, talking constantly about nothing, and being pushy. But – do any of you have some good tips for this young introvert so that she can show her leadership skills to team members?

Dear IntrovertZone,

i am 19 year old extremly shy girl… engineering student.. staying in a hostel… i joined a local ngo to teach the local slum kids.. i had never interacted with kids… i am the only child of m parents… but i decided to join coz i wanted to experience working for ngo… and i found it interesting… ok … i wouldnt give myself up entirely.. but teaching once or twice a week seemed a good idea… but now because i was so regular and others made excuses coz they had to go out with friends… our project head asked me to be the next project head… but i have nevr been a leader!!!!!! i said yes… but now i am apprehensive… wil i be able maintain my team members?

  2. Introverts make the best leaders, in my humble opinion because they generally use their quiet time to think through issues, possibilities, dreams and problematic people. They don’t lash out and don’t say things hastily in anger. These are key characteristics that make a great leader. The fact that you are even questioning whether you will be a good leader, makes you a good leader because you care! Be yourself and you will figure out how to be the best there is!

  3. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
