Businesses and teams are made up of a number of people, all with different personality types and different ways of working. The two of the most distinct and easy to understand personality characteristics are extroverts and introverts. Whilst extroverts might by their very nature, be more outgoing, introverts are often quieter.
It is important that any team has a good mixture of both personality types in order to be able to function at its best. Too many extroverts and you will end up with loud chaotic teams and too many introverts can mean a team that doesn’t function well as a unit. Both personalities enjoy being rewarded with Team Gifts like the ones from Miller and Co for a job well done.
Introverts often find that being around lots of people drains them both emotionally and mentally and they may need to spend some time by themselves to help recharge. You can often find them sitting in a quiet area during their lunch breaks, composing themselves ready for an afternoon of work.
When it comes to accepting change, introverts can struggle. It is important to give them as much notice as possible as to when changes are going to occur in the business or team and to clearly explain the rationale for this.This can help them to adjust to the changes in a much healthier way.
