What an Introvert knows about Empathy and How it Can Build Better Relationships

What an Introvert knows about Empathy and How it Can Build Better Relationships | An Introverts Communication Guide | Scoop.it

Empathy is the most important skill you can practice. It will lead to greater success personally and professionally and will allow you to become happier the more you practice.

Audrey Kwan's insight:

The biggest misconception is that introverts are anti-social, the opposite can be true.

 

Introvert, Chad Fowler says that, "The reason crowds of people exhaust me is that I am constantly trying to read and understand the feelings and motivations of those around me..."


I relate because I  spend  time and  effort learning how to understand the people  around me by really listening (not to what IS said but what is not being said) and then processing. My motto: to be understood, seek first to understand. Chad Fowler calls this Empathy and a skill-set that comes with conscious and consistent practice.


The result is a better leader, a better follower, and most important, a better friend. To this I will say hash-tag truth (#truth).

The 30-Second Rule: How to Create Unforgettable Presentations

The 30-Second Rule:  How to Create Unforgettable Presentations | An Introverts Communication Guide | Scoop.it

Whether your audience is your boss, your banker, a small team of direct reports, a ballroom full of conference attendees, or thousands of people worldwide connected via teleconference, your success depends on being able to make a great presentation.

 

Great presentations are well-organized, flow logically from one idea to another, and ultimately leave the audience leave feeling rewarded and enlightened. All well and good, but if you don’t hook your audience in the first 30 seconds, all your careful preparation may be for naught. Therefore you have to begin with a bang! A television commercial has only 30 seconds to grab your attention; the same is true for you and your presentation.

5 Authentic Networking Tips for the Introvert

5 Authentic Networking Tips for the Introvert | An Introverts Communication Guide | Scoop.it

"... if you are an introvert, you have an advantage. You are already probably described as a great listener! Half of networking is listening. The other half is directing what you hear into how you can help.

Audrey Kwan's insight:

Networking can feel like a lot of pressure when we go into an event with the expectation on ourselves to connect to as many people as possible, that's a recipe for disaster. Know who you are, know the value you bring, and wisely choose someone you can add value to. 

 

As event managers become better adept at facilitating networking events that help people connect to solve problems, introverts will find their skill-set increasingly advantageous in these environments.
