In a society where being social and outgoing is celebrated, it can be difficult to be an introvert. Being an introvert is not uncommon though, as, according to studies, 1/3 to 1/2 of the US population identify as one. Based on personal experiences and research, this talk aims at giving an understanding of what is an introvert, how to see the world as one and the wealth of skills and perspectives they bring to the workplace environment. It will also give some insights on ways of working to enable introverts' growth, contribution and well-being.


Participants will leave this session with a better understanding of what it means (and doesn't mean) to be an introvert vs. an extrovert. Real life examples will give perspective on how these differences affect communication and well-being. The talk will conclude with simple takeaways for introverts and extroverts alike.

Intended Audience

This session is intended for introverts and extroverts alike, wishing to understand one another better. It will be also interesting for leaders and managers looking to build growth enabling environment for their teams. No prerequisite knowledge is necessary for this presentation.
