The 2 Types of People You Need on Your Team
Charming, assertive, and persuasive, extroverts are heard loud and clear. While their energetic traits generally serve them well in the business world, the allure of extroverts can come at a cost.
That cost? Well, the introverts. It can be easy to overlook those who seem quieter at first glance and not realize how much value they actually bring to your team. But since your work will benefit most from collaboration and complementary skills, by only being attracted to those who are most outspoken, you may be missing out on an essential part of creating the most effective group.
Watch the quick video below to discover how a healthy mix of extroverts and introverts has produced some of the best partnerships in history—and how you can tap into the power of both personalities to make your team even more successful.
