Being a Successful Introvert in the Workplace

Many people describe themselves as introverted, or a mixture of introvert and extravert. It is not ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ to be an introvert or an extravert, it’s just a part of our human nature. Some introverts find that the organisations they work in are geared up to suit extraverts rather than introverts.

This is a course for introverts who want to have a better experience at work. If you have ever struggled to speak up in meetings, even though you know that you have the answers, then this is the course for you.
