How understanding introverts can drive business success

Sarah K. White | Sept. 3, 2015
Introverts are dispelling the notion that they are quiet and shy. (Yes, there is such a thing as an outgoing introvert.) Businesses are realizing they can benefit by drawing on the strengths of introverts and extroverts, but nurturing opposite pairings in the workplace requires patience, understanding and even some training.

Since embarking on a journey to help bridge the gap between introverts and extroverts, Kahnweiler has found that more companies are implementing training around personality types. Companies are understanding the value of both personality types and what they can bring to the table. By leveraging these strengths, it can only make a company more successful and its employees happier to work for a business that understands them.

"When we stop focusing on our differences, but look at what our desired results are, that's when we have success," says Kahnweiler. "And these partnerships in opposites don't just happen, they do take nurturing. It's a delicate balance but it's so worth it because the results are exponential in terms of what you get."
