Leadership tip of the week
Many of us now have to run, or be involved in more virtual meetings than ever before. There’s an assumption that introverts prefer them, as there’s less people contact.
Simple fact is that most people, including introverts find them tiring and often more tiring that face to face. In most face to face meetings people will look around the room every now and again – it’s not frowned upon. But on camera there seems to be an expectation of more concentration.
One simple tip to help – have more breaks and get people to get up and move. The introverts will find it useful, but everybody else too.
Other things that help are being much tighter on the agenda (keep it more relevant to the people in the zoom and stick to it). You could also try getting a different person to summarise the discussion on each subject, so every 10-15 minutes there’s a short summary

Introvert myth of the week
Penny for the guy mister….
One myth I’d like to confine to the bonfire today is that it’s easy to tell an introvert from an extrovert.

If the rewards for success go to more extrovert behaviours, then it’s no surprise that many introverts will wear a mask to hide in plain sight.
