Soft Skills for Leaders with Lisa Evans

Feb 22, 2021

A lot of people shy away from leadership positions because they feel they are not outgoing or outspoken enough to be a leader. Because of this, introverts have a hard time identifying themselves as leaders.

Our guest in this episode shares with us why softly and quietly leading is a superpower. With her book, Quietly Powerful Leadership, Megumi Miki spreads the message of how quieter professionals can thrive on their own terms and be comfortable in their own skin.

Join us as we delve into redefining what good leadership looks, sounds, and feels like.
