Best-selling author of The Introverted Leader, Jennifer B. Kahnweiler discusses the differences between introverts and extroverts, and then delves into their potential harmonies. These two types of people function differently and in often predictable ways. If they understand each other and work together, they can produce spectacular results. Successful teams of “opposites” buy into each other’s differences but their partnerships can suffer if either comes to see him- or herself as more important. Kahnweiler’s cogent guide on how opposites can work and thrive together is a gentle, entertaining discussion about broadening your repertoire of professional skills. getAbstract recommends her insights to HR professionals and to anyone who collaborates with or manages other people.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to identify introverts and extroverts;
- How to understand what makes them different; and
- How “opposites” can work together as a team by drawing on the natural strengths of their personality types.
