Empowering Experienced Professionals for Successful Career Transitions
Directions to 40 Plus
Is it just me or have you ever wondered whether the media’s coverage of these two groups in corporate America, introverts and extroverts, is accurate? It seems to be slanted, portraying extroverts in a more positive light, being sought out as leaders, being included in statements such as the “sky is the limit” and “shoots for the stars”, and being what most people should strive toward. The term introvert has been depicted in more negative terms; someone who wants to close his or her door to the world, use solitude to problem solve, is nerdy and not as promote-able nor eager to attain notoriety. For example, have you ever met an extrovert whose goal was to become an introvert? I haven’t. How about an introvert wishing to become more extroverted? Yes, that I have heard of.
Yeah, yeah, it sounds simple and you probably heard it before that the terms “introvert” and “extrovert” describe where a person gets their energy. Introverts re-energize by being alone and extroverts by being with people. But perhaps those descriptions are too simple and don’t tell the whole story…..
As professionals we say that we want to encourage creativity, innovation, and inspiration. How can this be done unless we understand each other’s strengths and build upon them? How can we encourage communication within these two groups and foster an environment where we can work together and be on the same page? If you answered yes, or agree with any of the statements above, then this workshop is for you!
The presentation will cover:
*Why it is important to identify whether you are an “introvert” or an “extrovert” and how it affects our working relationships with one another and influences your corporate culture
*How self-awareness can take you to the next level in your profession and feel more confident that your style and strengths will be an asset to you as well as in your career path
*Techniques for networking, interviewing for a new position, acing your annual review, or moving ahead and growing within your current company or organization
