introvert photoIntroverts are people too! There are ways to encourage them to be more vocal during meetings, conferences and overall. It is important to remember to encourage without forgetting that being an introvert is totally normal.

When sending an introvert to an event, make sure to plan ahead. Introverts tend to want to understand and connect with things on a deeper level without having to speak a lot, and always have something good to bring to the table. Becoming more present, more aware of the introverts discomfort will also help with social situations.

Key Takeaways:

  • Introverts often dread large conferences or impersonal networking events
  • Having a varied network is a necessary ingredient for success in any business
  • If you’re a manager, it’s likely that introverts make up one-third to one-half of your team
