Get your voice in the room in the first few minutes.
Challenge yourself to put your ideas on the table in the first few minutes. Prepare. The vibe of the meeting is set early, and by contributing then, you’re establishing yourself as an active participant.
Ask important questions
Introverts are naturally observant and can use this advantage to ask key questions that move the dialogue further.
Be a synthesizer of ideas
Most introverts have a knack for listening and reflection. Synthesize what you’re observing, and find common threads.
Call out the elephant in the room
If there’s an issue everyone is avoiding, see that as an opportunity. Bringing it up with your signature thoughtfulness could be the perfect way for you to be heard, and make a memorable impression.
Remember, we desperately need reflective, truth – telling in our organizations.
