Mining the Gold That Is Your Introvert Employee
IT IS ESTIMATED that fully 50 percent of the working population in the U.S. is somewhat to highly introverted. This means that it is possible that half of the valuable employees at a financial planning firm prefer to not be on committees, prefer to not go to conferences, prefer to work alone, prefer to think about ideas for quite a while, and prefer to avoid conflict, especially in groups. Introversion can be confused with shyness; it is not shyness. Introversion is a person's preferred style of working with ideas, people, and the world. Shyness is an anxiety challenge.
