Introverts No Longer the Quiet Followers of Extroverts - Forbes

Introverts No Longer the Quiet Followers of Extroverts - Forbes | Success Leadership | 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.

(From the article): That news? Leaders are made, not born. While no one is created with leadership in his or her bones, many people in business are ambitious, strong communicators from the start. So, it’s up to employers to determine who shows the motivation and tendency toward leadership -- and then develop it.

The Introvert’s Guide to Better Relationships With Colleagues | The Fast Track

The Introvert’s Guide to Better Relationships With Colleagues | The Fast Track | Success Leadership | Scoop.it

Here’s an interesting fact: 65% of executives, in a USA Today survey, said that being introverted is a barrier to leadership … yet about 40% of leaders test as introverts, which is only a little bit lower than the 50/50 introvert/extrovert split in the general population. So clearly, while it might be a challenge, it’s not a prohibitive one. It’s true, though, that introverts generally need to work harder to build the relationships with colleagues that are so important to professional success. We introverts often prefer to keep our heads down and focus on work and can find socializing with colleagues to be weirdly draining. So it can be frustrating to realize just how important work relationships really are to your success (and to the success of your team). But there are some relatively painless things that introverts can do to strengthen relationships with colleagues without triggering too much introvert agony. Tagged

In this talk, learn three unexpected habits of originals -- including embracing failure.
