With the right company, introverts can make good leaders, too

With the right company, introverts can make good leaders, too Many people want to become leaders in their fields, but worry they are not outgoing enough to command the respect and attention of their peers. However, according to a recent article in TIME magazine, individuals do not have to be extroverted to be good leaders.

In fact, John Heilemann, a leading chronicler of Barack Obama's presidency, told The New York Times that the president is an introvert. Rather than be constantly surrounded by crowds, Obama has proven he prefers to socialize in small, intimate groups, Heilemann said.

Rather than dwell on whether they are introverts or extroverts, individuals should take a personality test to help them get a better sense of all their strengths and weaknesses, TIME states. Then, they should be sure that as leaders, they surround themselves with people who can bring out their strengths.

For example, author Les McKeown told the news outlet that introverted leaders tend to focus on completing one task at a time. Therefore, they should surround themselves with professionals who can help them finish smaller projects so they do not become distracted.
