Introverts No Longer the Quiet Followers of Extroverts - Forbes

Introverts No Longer the Quiet Followers of Extroverts - Forbes | Leadership Application | Scoop.it
It has long been believed that the natural leaders of our society were the extroverted types, those that were– outspoken, sociable, and decisive. Those that were quiet, a bit more passive and less sociable – the introverts – were thought of as people who were only suited for behind the scenes or back office work. They were certainly not perceived as leaders. Indeed, it seems as though most leaders are extroverts or at least manage to act like an extrovert. But to be an effective leader we extroverts must learn to work more effectively with introverts.

Purpose meanwhile, is like a cardinal direction. It doesn’t depend on me. It doesn’t change when I change. It’s something immovable –around which I must orient myself. It can’t be “work” (a process) or “money” (a temporal and changeable end).
