About the Course

Are you ready to master your introvert strengths? 

Do you find you need time to recharge after being sociable for long periods of time? Does spending time alone help to refuel your creativity? Do you find downtime productive? 

This new course from AIGA and Janice Chaka, an international HR professional, virtual business owner, introvert coach, and professional podcaster, can help you maximize your introvert strengths. 

Listening to ourselves to better understand and know what we need to succeed and thrive is important. Our mindset is an incredible asset that needs to be nurtured. This is especially true for creatives that identify as introverted and want to find a way to harness their skills and energy to set goals and boundaries, and create impact while maintaining a life balance.
