In 1996, she moved into the corporate sphere, where she held tenures at Datatec as communications strategist, and at London-based Siegel & Gale as Senior Content Strategist and Head of Content, Europe and Middle East.

They’re often unaware of their introvert strengths and how to maximize them in the workplace, much less become leaders. However, Cain, Laney, Kahnweiler, and others have increased our understanding of introversion and how it impacts leadership styles.
