Some fun stuff this week for introverts! Who doesn’t like having fun?

Maybe you’ll be interested in some fun as an introvert – take the introvert TV personality test, whether you’re an introvert or extrovert. It works for either.

Or maybe like me you are looking for valuable tips for LinkedIn this week, then learn maybe something you don’t already know about how to use their blogging platform.

Just pick one if you can’t decide or are short on time – the one that interests you most.[Continue Reading…]

Is Your Niche Blogging Attracting and Growing Your Online Reach as Much as You Want?

Thank you for making the last month more of an oasis for this introvert’s blogging efforts.

Often it can be either a desert or an oasis with online social media visibility. We can blog consistently, offer valuable and unique content, and can still think or feel, “Is this reaching more people?” Or even, “Where am I going with this blogging?”

Or is that just me? If it is, then you are way ahead of me.

Two unexpected and different kinds of recognition each arrived with their gifts. I don’t know quite what to make of it.

Most bloggers want to grow their reach.

But maybe you don’t care about recognition. It’s might be hard to believe an introvert would thrive in the limelight of it. But maybe in my situation it’s my award winning sales background that causes me to do a happy dance when winning something comes my way.

With the approaching publication of my upcoming book, Communication Toolkit for Introverts, it is an exciting time.

First, the launch date, because of the publishers organizational changes, is moved from April 29 to May 29. That’s fine by me because my travel plans are so booked through May 20, it would be overwhelming to get some of the actions needed to get done by the original date.

Also, the working subtitle is now different: instead of Essential Skills for Everyday Business Success, the publisher’s editorial staff made a giant leap to Find Your Voice in Everyday Business Situations.

It seems to resonate more for the dilemma some introverts find in the workplace, even as I type it out.

Let me now tease you with the current version of the book cover. I’ve seen about six versions so far and I believe one more is on the way, but by far, this is absolutely eye catching.

It’s coming right up.

Becoming An Inspirational Leader

Becoming an inspirational leaderLeaders from all aspects of life are always in the news. There have also been more books written on leadership for the introvert in recent months. When I got this article from Donna Lee, I wondered, “If the qualities are not personality driven, are any of them more preferred by someone’s style?”

What do you think about any differences between temperament styles to becoming an inspirational leader as you read this guest blogger post?

There are three essential traits that top leaders must possess. These important qualities are concentrating on customer needs, being able to collaborate effectively with colleagues, and being inspiring to others. The first two qualities are easy to define and therefore improve on, but being inspiring is more intangible and difficult to replicate or even explain.

The ability to inspire is also the most important, since it helps foster high levels of employee engagement and commitment, separating effective leadership from average supervision.

The purpose of good leadership is to have great teamwork at and between all levels of an organization. Inspirational leaders are needed from the production floor all the way up to the highest levels of management.

The good news is, inspiring leaders have similar methods and theories that can be studied. This means other leaders can learn to become inspirational by being aware, offering constructive feedback and always having a plan of development.[Continue Reading…]
