Last week I had the pleasure of working with a fave introverted leader, John Kosar. Presentation skills coach Kelly Vandever who introduced us, once called him the “epitome of an introverted leader.”
John is a Client Manager with IT staffing firm, CCCi and his latest assignment is at the The Southern Company, one of America’s largest generators of electricity. He has organized a number of well attended programs with technology leaders. and is committed to working with IT pros to help them succeed. On Halloween his company hosted an appreciation luncheon for the teams of IT pros at the Southern Company and gifted each attendee with a copy of The Introverted Leader. I spoke with them about why introverts are leaders, the 4 steps introverted leaders take to succeed and what we miss when we don’t tap into their strengths.
John recruits and retains all types of IT folks and knows the importance of developing strong communication and people skills. Check out these short video clips
I look forward to many more collaborations with introverted leaders like John Kosar who truly walk their talk.
