The Unlikely Leader
Anyone who commits themselves to personal development usually comes to two realizations at some point:
- There’s something big (and scary) you’d like to do in the world.
- You need the support of other people to be successful.
You don’t fit the leader stereotype.
Of course, the problem with stereotypes is they assign values to people who don’t deserve them. We think being an extrovert is a leadership quality. It isn’t; it’s just a personality type. We think leaders are fast and decisive. Fast and decisive is just as likely to point you the wrong direction as it is the right one.
So what does make a great leader? And can you become one?
This presentation will remove the unhelpful beliefs you might have about leadership and replace them with ideas and skills you can use to actually get started making a difference at work, at home, and in your community.
Meet Tyler Tervooren
Tyler Tervooren is a 32-year-old business owner from Portland, Oregon. He started his website, Riskology, in 2010 as a blog dedicated to taking smarter risks. Since then, it has grown into an education company serving introverted leaders by helping them leverage their unique personality traits to become more influential.
Tyler created Riskology after spending years in the traditional workforce watching leaders take dumb risks out of bravado and promote the wrong people to the wrong positions for the wrong reasons.
He saw an opportunity to develop himself as a leader and share a different perspective on leadership in a world that, in his opinion, defines it all wrong and ignores great talent.
