Sasha, Attended the Indian Governor’s Conference session on Quiet Influence

One action item that I took away from the session is to not be afraid to step outside of the comfort zone that I have created for myself as an introvert. I have found that when I am in new social settings, work environments, or other situations I sometimes use “I’m an introvert” as a crutch or excuse to not speak up, take action, introduce myself to someone new, etc. Your session helped me realize that even though I may have certain characteristics or tendencies, it’s also OK to surprise myself once in awhile, and it is my goal to do this as often as I can!
