  • introverted leaders tend to travel a long way in their thinking relatively quickly and it can be hard to communicate their thoughts effectively to others, particularly in meetings

  • introverted leaders can find it particularly challenging to come up with a quick response when they would more naturally take time to consider and formulate a response

  • perceptions of introverted leaders during meetings can be lowered by the impression that they are not contributing

  • when introverted leaders are quiet at meetings it can be interpreted that they are ‘controlling’ or that they have a hidden agenda

  • decisions being made too quickly or without full consideration of the facts can be frustrating and stressful for the introverted leader

  • meetings with large numbers of people can be particularly challenging and draining on energy levels.
