Me? A Leader?

Being a leader means putting yourself in the limelight and hoping that you won’t get burned too bad. It’s difficult for everyone, but even more difficult for introverts. However, there are things introverts can do to lead when you lack confidence.
First, stay calm. Leadership can be stressful, and it is important to keep your composure. If you feel like your back is to a wall in a difficult situation, and you feel your temperature rising, get away. You can even take a bathroom break if you are in a stressful meeting. Use those five minutes to calm down and re-energize yourself. Focus on what’s important, and look for a way to diffuse the situation.
