Event Date and Time

Offered by the UMD Alumni Association, this webinar demonstrates how people who identify as introverts can communicate and exercise leadership in highly effective ways, despite the cultural myths that hold that “real” leaders are extroverted and dynamic.

After a general introduction to introversion, the webinar will outline dominant cultural myths about leadership and make the case that introverts can be effective leadership because of, not despite, their different approaches to communication.

Several case studies will be woven throughout the presentation to illustrate major points. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session with attendees.
