Welcome to Episode 201 of Building My Legacy.

If you’ve ever wondered how your personality type affects your work style or your opportunities for leadership, you’ll enjoy hearing from author Terrance Lee. Known as “The Introvert Leader,” Terrance talks about growing up as an introvert, working in an environment too often dominated by extroverts and using his personality to become an effective leader. Learn why Terrance believes introverts can be good leaders and how extroverts can work best with their introverted team members. Terrance’s goal is to empower introverts who feel that they can’t lead and to help all leaders take full advantage of the diverse personalities in the workplace.

So if you want to know:

  • How you can maintain your introverted personality and still become a valuable team member
  • Helpful tips for introverts — and for the extroverts who work with them
  • Why introverts need to “seize the moment” to add value to a meeting or conversation
  • The most common myths about introverts — and why they do make good leaders

About Terrence Lee

Although a bad experience at age 13 shaped Terrance Lee’s introverted nature, he was forced — on his first job out of college — to step in for a lead engineer at a highly technical presentation to experienced engineers and pilots. This went well, giving Terrance a tremendous confidence boost. Since then, he has held many management roles at several Fortune 500 companies in the defense industry. He has also made it his mission to empower other introverts to tap into their own inner leadership potential. In his book, Quiet Voice Fearless Leader: 10 Principles For Introverts To Awaken The Leader Inside, he explains how you can be an introvert, be successful and be heard. It’s available on Amazon in print, e-book and audio. You can follow Terrance on Facebook @theintrovertleader, and his Instagram handle is @theintrovertleader
