When you’re seeking to convey a message, your success can be drastically affected by whether you’re talking to introverts or extroverts.
For example, when seeking to inform introverts – many, but by no means all accountants, engineers, surveyors and technical people – they may well want a lot of detail.
But when seeking to inform extroverts – some but by no means all lawyers, chief executives, salespeople and entertainers – including a persuasively captivating story may help.
MIND THE 33% GAP
My professional speaking colleague, Jon Baker, and I are taking on the mission of helping people in the business world to better understand the key differences in approach of introverts and extroverts.
Jon will tell you that extroverted leaders can manage introverts on their team better and boost productivity by better understanding introversion.
He maintains that many firms have a 33% productivity gap due to ignorance of introverts.
Jon also tells audiences that there are important damaging myths about introversion.
I agree with Jon Baker that a key to tackling these challenges is for those at the top – and many others in business teams – to better understand introversion and extroversion.
And knowing how to give great (but differently styled) answers to tough questions from introverts and extroverts can help boost the effective communication between these two species – and all who occupy the large overlapping zone between them.
SESSIONS TO ENLIGHTEN YOUR INTROVERTS & EXTROVERTS
