Faking it: How introverts succeed

How can introverts succeed in a society with an extrovert bias? Writer Susan Cain describes the power of the introvert.

 

Recent research is showing that introverts often make better leaders. However, society, politics, corporations, and the Church still seem to crave the charismatic, sanguine, extrovert in leadership roles.

 

In fact, Jim Collins, in his book Good to Great, argues that charisma is often a negative indicator of "Level 5 Leadership."

It's not typically the wickedness of leaders (or of boards, for that matter) that gets companies into trouble. It's their failure to effectively manage the wickedness of the problems they face — problems that resist obvious solutions.

Social Psychology Tips To Engage And Motivate

So few managers and HR professionals seem to grasp the need to implement specific programs to engage, motivate, and encourage passion among their workforce. Most are so stuck in the 1970s model of authoritarian rule, that it's hard to shift to the new normal of needing to engage your workforce.

 

The problem is that if most managers and HR professionals don't get it soon, we'll start to see the typical turnover levels increase among the best talent due to an improving job market and declining level of employee satisfaction.

Managing compassionately

Of all the management principles I have adopted over the years, either through direct experience or learning from others, there is one I aspire to live by more than any other.

 

Of all the management principles I have adopted over the years, either through direct experience or learning from others, there is one I aspire to live by more than any other. I say "aspire" because as much as I'd like to do it consistently and without fail, given the natural ebb and flow of day-to-day operations and challenges, and the subsequent range of responses that follow, I find this particular principle harder to practice consistently than others. That principle is managing compassionately.
