Are you getting passed over for promotions? You might be the smartest person in the room, but if you’re not speaking up, you’re pretty much invisible.

Do any of the following sound familiar?

You’re tired of not getting airtime for your ideas and consequently not being heard.

You’re tired of not being taken seriously.

You feel reluctant to speak up because you’re afraid of being wrong or don’t want your ideas rejected.

You’re self-conscious.

You don’t know how to communicate your achievements and hope someone will notice and you’ll be rewarded based on merit.

You’re tired of being prepared for meetings, only to have other people, more willing to speak up, get credit for your ideas.

You know your ideas are good, but you’re beginning to wonder if other people do. Are they even listening?

When you throw your hat in the ring for a leadership position, you seem to get overlooked, and the person selected is confident, but not as qualified as you are.

You don’t know how to communicate the right information to senior leaders.

You’re worried that if you don’t figure out how to speak in a way that resonates with leaders, the only positions you’re going to get are lateral moves.

What if you could have the impact you know you’re capable of, take on more responsibility, and accelerate your career trajectory that moves you up the ladder? What if you harnessed the strengths you have as an introvert and knew how to leverage them for success?

After this, speaking up became a game for me...

"When someone else would say what I was thinking, I thought I'd lost an opportunity to participate and "look smart" and contribute. After I learned the LAWS framework, it became a game for me. When others spoke, I could tell there was a lot of “obvious” speak going on. I use the framework to challenge myself to dig deeper. “What aren't they all seeing? What’s deliberately not being said? I’d let them talk and repeat and wallow in the conversation, while I absorbed and observed. The unstated points would always reveal themselves to me, and I used the framework to communicate my point right at the right moment. I’d assert myself with confidence and bring a decision to or clarity to the group."

Executive presence for introverts allowed me to tap into my listening power...

"As introverted leaders, we have the power of listening which is lacking in our society. We need to turn that power into purposeful listening and observing for the nuances, what isn't being said,  and using that power to ask the right questions. That’s how we unlock what really matters in the discussion."

Hi, I’m Teri Citterman, and I’m a performance coach and part of Forbes National Coaches Council. I’ve worked with CEOs and executives for the past decade to help them refine their executive presence and be more powerful and influential leaders.

The center of our work centers on understanding who they are as a leader, building self-awareness of their real strengths (not the ones they think they have) and building their recognition of how they use those strengths to impact others and influence outcomes.

A few years ago, I started to notice a disturbing trend. In my work with my introverted clients, who were on-track for greater levels of leadership, very often they were missing out on those promotions, or not succeeding in their executive roles. They had really good ideas — groundbreaking, paradigm-shifting ideas — but weren’t able to communicate their thinking. They were talked over, interrupted, or dismissed. Or worse, if they were able to get their idea out, it wasn’t heard until someone else — someone louder — repeated the same thing.

The problem wasn't intelligence.

Every single person I’ve worked with has a wealth of intelligence, natural talents and abilities. What they lacked is was the understanding of how to design their executive presence leveraging their natural skills as introverts to project confidence, authority and credibility.

There’s no faking it ‘til you make it here. That’s an extrovert construct. Introverts don’t do that.

So I took all the things I’ve taught my one-on-one clients over the years and packaged them into this course. Think of it as your roadmap to success. One that, if you follow, will accelerate the path to your career destination.

This roadmap has helped hundreds of introverted professionals gain more confidence, speak up at well-timed precise moments, have the impact they need to have, and get the promotion they deserve, time and time again.

You are far too talented and creative to keep yourself on the sidelines.

You can keep doing what you're doing...

  • Keep hiding your genius. Hoping you’ll be seen by your intelligence alone.

  • Keep seeing your introversion as a weakness.

  • Keep telling yourself that if a promotion is meant to happen, it'll happen in its own time.

  • Taking lateral moves, even demotions, as part of the natural order of things.

But do you really want to accept your “place” as an introvert in an extrovert’s world? Letting the louder people take credit for your brilliance?

And do you really want to be in the same position you’re in five years from now? If you don’t take your career seriously, you won’t progress. And without progress, your career trajectory will flatten. You won’t have the impact you want to make and know you’re capable of making.

I now know how to stop being invisible...

"I wanted my ideas to flourish. I wanted to be able to influence and have impact. But I didn’t know how to promote myself or communicate my achievements to my boss and other senior leaders. This course helped me understand what is most meaningful to senior leaders and how to communicate effectively so that they understand my impact. I now know I have to speak up – I have to assert my thinking - or else there is no impact and I’ll stay invisible."
