Introverts – the powerful silent majority


20130521-201600.jpg

At today’s HRASM the meeting topic was Appreciating the Strengths and Challenges of Introverts in the Workplace: HR Strategies to Leverage Their Talents and Skills for Engagement and Success.

Amey Leadley & Kim Anania from KMA Consulting presented.

I prefer to subtitle the presentation Introverts – the powerful silent majority.

The presentation was generally spot on. As a 9 out of 12 on the introversion quiz, I remain comfortable with the anecdotal assessment. At the same, the myths seem a bit biased & perhaps stereotypical. Some may in fact be true on an individual basis. Further research, reflection & review is required.

Some useful resources include:

Quiet by Susan Cain

The Introvert Advantage by Martin Laney

I will close with these lyrics from U2’s Miracle Drug

I want a trip inside your head
Spend the day there
To see the things you haven’t said
And see what you may see.
