I must admit that it is only in recent months that I have become aware of the movement proving that successful CEO's or Leaders can indeed be introverts! Throughout my career I have been brought up on companies holding extroverts aloft as messiahs. My perception of this hasn't been helped by the large majority of my clients, during the last 19 years, appointing outgoing, gregarious extroverts and previous sales leaders into their Managing Director and CEO roles.

As an introvert myself I have always put myself in a certain box but this movement, backed with great data, should give us all confidence to reach high and secure senior Leadership roles including MD and CEO.
