Quietly Powerful is a movement started by Megumi Miki, to help quieter professionals to succeed on their own terms and help organisations and society to expand their definition of what good leadership looks like.
Due to current mainstream beliefs about what good leadership looks like, 91% of professionals surveyed feel like they have to be an extrovert to get ahead in the workplace. Organisations miss out as incredibly talented people remain hidden and under-utilised.
Since starting in August 2016, the movement has attracted nearly 1,000 people from 19 countries, with growing interest in Australia and globally on LinkedIn.
The work is firmly based on the view that quieter professionals can be powerful leaders in their chosen field because of their quieter nature, not in spite of it. Powerful shifts have occurred in professionals with whom Megumi has worked.
Megumi is developing a range of resources and tools for quieter professionals and organisations who wish to unlock their hidden talent - join the movement and Unlock the music you were born to play!
