People Don't Listen To Me

Some years back I was sitting across the table from a coaching client. We were talking about what she thought was her inability to influence as effectively as she wished. In her soft-spoken manner she said, "I just feel like people don't listen to me."

I have to admit that the mischievous side of me wanted to say, "Um, what was that you said?"

Now, of course, I didn't say that, but let me ask you this.... Since she is quiet it's rather obvious she's an introvert, right? And it's probably fair to say that introversion is likely to hold her back from climbing the ladder, wouldn't you say?

Well how about this? The coaching client was a C-level executive in a highly successful organization. Though she very well may be an introvert, making that assessment so quickly without learning more is any easy mistake to make.

Can Introverts Be Effective Project Managers?

Can introverts be effective project managers and leaders? In this episode we talk about that with Lisa Petrilli, author of The Introvert's Guide to Success in Business and Leadership. To learn more about Lisa, please visit her website at LisaPetrilli.com.

P.S. BTW, if you haven't listened to my interview with Devora Zack, author of Networking for People Who Hate Networking, make sure to check it out!
