Her expertise lies in helping the "quietly brilliant" (aka introverts) master the social confidence skills necessary to achieve personal success, represent their companies effectively, and become innovative wisdom leaders. Such "quietly brilliant" people often immerse themselves in learning complex skills without recognizing that ultimately 85% of success is due to social skills, and only 15% to those technical skills they master.
They seldom make it to leadership roles because of their social invisibility and difficulty in "managing up."
Leaders, too, need to be trained to recognize this buried treasure and to develop it effectively.
