It is not the loudest who win at influencing. This session will demonstrate how introverted HR pros, those who get their energy from within, are often the most effective influencers of all.  When they play to their strengths, they move their ideas, goals and requests forward in powerful ways. A preference for thinking through responses, one-on-one interaction, using solitude to gain perspective and listening carefully to others are some approaches introverts naturally use. Extroverts, those who are more outer focused, can also adopt these introvert focused approaches with great success. This session will also share a practical roadmap to sell your ideas with quiet success.

Date(s) & Time(s): 
Wednesday, June 27, 2012 - 11:30am to 12:45pm
