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. 

Being a Successful Introvert in the workplace is an online course within our Professional Development Skills series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
