Cave Dwellers and Chatter Boxes: Demystifying Introversion and Extraversion
The introvert/extravert dynamic is
a complex one. Introverts and extraverts typically exhibit significant
differences in behavior, interaction preferences, and work style. And the two
often differ in what, when, and how they communicate. Such differences can lead
to frayed nerves and ruffled feathers. Worse, they can create misunderstandings
and flawed problem solving.
In this presentation, Naomi will help you gain insight into your own preference
for introversion or extraversion and improve your effectiveness in working with
your more introverted and extraverted colleagues, co-workers and customers.
We'll take both a serious and a light-hearted look at the introvert/extravert
dynamic, so as to:
> broaden your understanding of this dynamic
> dispel misconceptions and stereotypes
> understand the positive and negative perceptions each has of the other
> determine what each would most appreciate from the other
> review techniques for working together productively
