Learn to utilise your quiet nature as a source of difference and strength, and develop new skills that enable you to thrive in your career, without feeling ‘fake’.
Quiet professionals have immense value to contribute to organisations. And yet, they often feel unheard, overlooked and disempowered.
A survey completed by 230 quiet professionals indicated that:
- 86% sometimes or often feel they have to be extroverted to progress in their careers.
- 93% often or sometimes feel like people underestimate what they are capable of.
The Quietly Powerful programs seek to change this, by empowering quieter professionals and those outside majority groups, to fulfill their potential.
Participants of the Quietly Powerful programs learn to succeed because of their quieter qualities, not in spite of them. They expand their skill set to influence, contribute and lead beyond what they have previously thought themselves capable of.
Our program participants have successfully moved to jobs they wanted, earned promotions, and become much more confident in leading and contributing to their teams.

- Efforts to be more outspoken or directive leave you feel exhausting and ‘fake’

Introducing Your Quietly Powerful Coach, Megumi
I’m Megumi Miki. I am an author, speaker and consultant on leadership and culture. For many years I felt held back by my quieter nature as well as feeling like an outsider as a Japanese Australian woman in the Australian workplace. It took time for me to fully appreciate, and utilise, my own quietly powerful way of contributing.
I have learned solid strategies and techniques that allow me to lead effectively while remaining true to my authentic self. I have also been privileged to meet many successful, quietly powerful leaders, whose quieter nature has proved a source of differentiation and strength in their leadership.
My wish with the Quietly Powerful Program is that more professionals learn to see and value this quiet power within them.
Reviews of Our Quietly Powerful Programs
The program has made a significant difference to me. I learned how to use my quiet strengths at work. I feel more comfortable and confident in unfamiliar environments. I learned how to practice and manage my inner voice and remain calm. I can’t speak highly enough of this course!!
It was quite a revelation to say you can be a quiet leader and be effective and influential. It made me feel more confident and self-assured in different situations. Particularly in high pressure meetings, where there are senior, incredibly capable, confident people, it has helped me to silence those inner voices. Rather than focus on doubting myself, I now watch people’s reactions and focus on how to best influence this group or this person based on what I know and my purpose.
You could be quiet, you can be yourself and still be powerful. I learned a lot about myself and self-respect. It gave me confidence to move forward.
