Succeeding in Project Management as an Introvert

Project management is a growing profession, yet some parts of the job can be intimidating—particularly for introverts. Although project management requires proactive communication, conflict resolution, assertiveness, and other skills more commonly associated with extroverts, introverts can thrive in this role. In fact, some of the classic traits of introverts—empathy, active listening, and observation skills—make them especially well-suited to this growing profession. In this course, veteran project manager and PM coach Anna Lung’aho Anderson explains how you can succeed in project management as an introvert. Anna covers important topics that all project managers must face—leading meetings, communicating with stakeholders, delegating tasks, managing conflict—all from the perspective of an introvert.
