You enjoy a profound discussion but you hate small talk? You’d rather watch the crowd than plunge into it? You get a little nervous when you read job ads seeking outgoing team players and enthusiastic networkers?
In this Career Coffee Talk let’s find out what introversion really is and how extroverts and introverts differ – and misunderstand each other. We will shed light on the introverts’ essential contributions to team work such as depth and discernment, and we will look at strategies to survive in a career system that rewards primarily smart networkers and assertive self-promoters with success.
Extroverts are equally welcome and appreciated!
