Introverts in the Workplace: Harnessing the Untapped Power of the Introvert

Extroverts get a lot of attention, but introverts are more likely to be successful. So why do we ignore them?

In today’s extroverted business world, introverts are often overlooked, excluded and misunderstood. In fact, the modern workplace seems to be designed for extroverts to succeed in: the open floorplan, freewheeling brainstorming sessions, promotions given to the self-promoting.

But, the truth is your workforce includes introverts too. In fact, they actually outnumber extroverts in the workplace. Even at the leadership level, 40% of high-level executives describe themselves as introverts.

Mark Zuckerberg. Bill Gates. Marissa Mayer. Larry Page. Condoleezza Rice. Elon Musk. All introverts. All great leaders.

Yet, it’s all too easy to have introverted employees and their contributions disappear underneath the noise of others.
