Understand your introverted employees

Help utilize their natural skills and abilities

Improve team cohesion and collaboration

"It’s never a good idea to organize society in a way that depletes the energy of half the population. We discovered this with women decades ago, and now it’s time to realize it with introverts"                                  

                                                                                                 - Susan Cain

Open plan offices, group assignments, and brainstorm sessions have long been thought to improved collaboration, team spirit, and efficiency. As a result, many organizations have incorporated these modern ways of working. Many people have indeed benefitted greatly from these changes. And many people have not.

No two people are alike, so it is impossible to create a work environment that caters perfectly to every employee. However, the above-mentioned ways of working, though beneficial to many, are far from ideal for your introverted employees which make up a third to half of your workforce.

Though the current ways of working are not likely to change any time soon, nor, from a company perspective, should they. It does after all work very well for over half of the staff. That being said, there are numerous ways for those employees who don’t necessarily benefit from this way of working to feel more understood, appreciated, and involved, without the organization having to make major changes.

Do you want to ensure you do not let a third to half of your personnel feel misunderstood, excluded, and like they matter less than the rest of their colleagues? Are you willing to make some necessary changes and adjustments to make sure you support 100% of your employees? Find out below how this can be realized.

Introverts often work more slowly and deliberately. They like to focus on one task at a time and can have mighty powers of concentration. They’re relatively immune to the lures of wealth and fame.
