How to succeed as an introvert in an extroverted world
Introverts benefit from reflecting on thoughts and feelings. Extroverts crave people and activity. If you’d rather recharge by being on your own than being in a group, if you’ve carefully selected close relationships rather than many casual acquaintances or if you prefer to think carefully about what you’re going to say before speaking, then you’re on the introverted end of the spectrum.
It’s estimated that between a third and a half of the population is introverted. However, there’s a cultural bias towards extroversion. This means that workplace cultures and practices are often set up in favour of extroverts, the people that speak up first or loudest, the people that are seen to be participating and who are well known in an organisation.
Our expert speaker is Emma Taggart, a leadership coach for introverts.
