In the uncertain, changing, global and inter-connected world, Megumi believes that the 'alpha' or 'hero' leadership style alone is outdated and inadequate. Quietly Powerful expands the definition of what good leadership looks, sounds and feels like and empowers quieter professionals and those outside majority groups to fulfil their leadership potential. Her work has helped people to develop a quietly powerful presence to lead authentically, be heard and have impact. Megumi's ideas and approach have resonated with many (not just introverts) wanting to develop a calm, inner strength to make the unique contribution they were born to make. Organisations are invited to challenge their usual approaches to identifying, selecting and developing their leadership talent to harness their hidden talent, often of diverse backgrounds.
