This is the general career myth prevailing in many organizations. But this is not true in the majority of the cases.

The quality of leadership can be gained by working with different people across the workplace. The experience also plays an important role in the improvement of leadership qualities.

Talent is everything?

A talented person who is unable to interact well with his team cannot serve well for the company. The corporations look for people who can work across various teams in harmony and so give importance to other qualities other than talents. Talent will help to a certain extent, but in a long run, talent alone cannot serve the purpose of career growth. Hence, it is important for us to develop our personality that will suit the current trend of corporate world.

Although they are calm and composed, introverts sometimes turn out to be the best leaders who can provide more comfortable environment for the employees to work. They can motivate the employees to work consistently and their works are predictable. Introverts are also quite responsible and concerned about completing the assigned tasks in time. So, introverts should never consider themselves unfit for the leadership opportunities and underestimate their leadership capacities.
