Do you supervise individuals would might describe themselves as an introvert? If the answer is “yes,” you may want to take a moment to examine how you manage them. In many cases, we hold misconceptions about introversion, which can lead to ill-fated supervisory decisions. I’d like to point you in the right direction.
While many people confuse being introverted with shyness, introversion is in fact about how an individual handles stimulation and processes information. Those on the introverted end of the introversion-extroversion continuum require a slightly different set of workplace conditions to excel, and it is not difficult to become more sensitive to their needs. Small changes in management and workplace elements can transact into an environment that is more conducive to success.
