Beyond Loud Voices: Being a Quiet Warrior (Interview with Dr Nia Thomas)

I had the opportunity to share with Dr Nia Thomas on her podcast Knowing Self Knowing Others, how introverts can feel frustrated in the workplace when loudness is prized over thoughtful and selective speaking.

Leaders have a wonderful opportunity to create a psychologically safe and supportive environment that welcomes and encourages the “wise owls” (as Dr Nia D Thomas calls them) to articulate the wisdom they may be holding back.

We also talked about practical ways for introverted leaders to leverage their natural strengths and how to grow from a quiet achiever into a Quiet Warrior and thrive in an extrovert-biased culture.

Do connect with Dr Nia D Thomas for more insightful discussions around leadership and the Knowing Self Knowing Others ethos and podcast.
