Show Notes

Welcome on in to Her Ambitious Career, the personal branding and success podcast for corporate women who are ready for more and who never want to settle for second best.

Do you label yourself an 'introvert'?

And do you find it difficult to maintain that natural preference at work, or does your work culture truly empower you?

Today I am delighted to invite Tasneem Ali on the show. She's an expert in introversion and maintaining your authenticity when operating in potentially 'extroverted' environments.

We are talking about...

* Overcoming the need to people-please
* Looking inward at the strengths and value you do have already and leverage them more
* The importance of listening to your gut instinct because it's often right!
* Learning how to break the pattern of overthinking and procrastination so that you get out there more

 Here's something that stood out for me in today's episode:

“If you're an introvert you might struggle with small talk, speaking up and influencing others, but the key is to get courageous and focus on your strengths and lean on them more."  (Tasneem Ali, guest on ‘Her Ambitious Career’ Podcast)
