Some might argue that extroverts make natural leaders given their love of people and engagement. But not all extroverts are effective leaders. Their need for interaction and attention can sometimes hinder their ability to allow space for others and hear the positions of their peers and direct reports. In this forum, we'll hear from individuals who have worked at overcoming being extroverted as well as introverts who have effectively collaborated with extroverts and learned how to engage others to create a collaborative, equitable environment in which a variety of personalities can thrive.

Learning Objectives

Describe the pros and cons of being an extroverted leader; Identify effective strategies for collaborating with both extroverts and introverts.
