UX Camp Fall 2024

Quiet Leadership for Introverts

Do you squirm in your seat when asked to introduce yourself? Do you find networking awkward and embarrassing? In meetings, do you find yourself keeping quiet even though you have something to say? Does a quiet evening at home with a book sound more attractive to you than an evening socialising with people you’ve never met?

If your answer to most of these questions is yes, congratulations: you are (probably) an introvert. As an introvert, you lose energy when engaging with people rather than gain. People engagement is not optional if you want to lead. So how do you lead as an introvert?

In this talk, Tim Yeo will share techniques he’s used to manage his own introversion in order to lead as a designer. He’ll also share power tips he’s learned leading a fully remote global team during coronavirus isolation that play to an introvert’s strengths.
