Introverts / Ambiverts / Extroverts as Leaders

Inspired by two books, Introverts in the Church by Adam McHugh, and Susan Cain’s best seller, Quiet, I have been doing research on Introverts/Ambiverts/Extroverts as leaders.  Thus far I have done +450 interviews with C Suite executives, Generals, pastors, theologians, and other leaders. Traditionally we have viewed leaders as extroverts, this research suggests this is simply not true, introverts and ambiverts can also be outstanding leaders.

As a professor at the McGill University Desautels Faculty of Management and for +25 years a Fellow and an Associate Fellow at Green Templeton College, Oxford University, Karl Moore spends a lot of time interacting with the current and future leaders of our world…CEOs and millennials/Zs.

Starting with his Ph.D. Karl has studied CEOs and how they lead and develop strategies.  At McGill, he teaches an MBA course, CEO Insights, where 31 CEOs come to join the class for an hour each Fall.  For the last 8 years, this class has been turned into an hour-long radio show on Bell Media’s CJAD, and this year on Bell Media stations across Canada. The show is called the CEO Series, it is an hour-long one-on-one with a leading CEO.  Each interview is turned into an article for and in French for Les Affaires.   He has also worked closely with Henry Mintzberg for 20 years on the Advanced Leadership Program, the IMPM and the IMHL.  Prior to academia, Karl spent 11 years with IBM and Hitachi in marketing and management positions.  Prior to McGill, he was a full-time faculty at Oxford University for 5 years at the Said Business School and Green Templeton College.
