Getting Over Yourself

Is it bad to be an introvert?


If you’re worried that being an introvert may interfere with your success in business, you may find this helpful. It’s an excerpt from an article in Inc. by Geil Browning. You’ll find the full article at http://www.inc.com/geil-browning/power-of-the-quiet-entrepreneur.html

“It’s often harder to realize how to be a quiet leader, so here’s a few tips for you (and your employees), especially if any of the descriptors above sound like you:

  • Be aware that other people are not mind-readers
  • Remember to speak up
  • Maximize your influence in writing
  • If you need time to reflect, ask for it
  • Schedule your socializing for the mornings when you are fresh, and leave solitary tasks for the afternoon
  • Try business breakfasts instead of business lunches
  • Even though it will tire you out, dial up your expressiveness for phone calls, meetings, or teleconferencing”
