5. Become visible
As an introvert, you may not like speaking in front of groups. You feel more comfortable sitting in the back during group discussions. You like observing more, then socializing. You are reluctant to speak before you have your ideas well worked out, prepared and verified.
But the reality is, if people don’t see or hear you, they will not recognize you as a leader. Introverts too have important things to say. Speak up, even if you think that your idea is not perfect yet. It doesn’t have to be. Grant others the pleasure to get inside your head. Only by sharing your ideas, you can contribute to the organization. What helps is to mentally lay out what you’re going to say before you say it.
