How to Run Meetings that Don’t Leave Introverts Out
In our fast-paced culture, many of our meetings and workshops are designed for Extraverts. Thinking out loud is encouraged; participation is equated with talking. Those who speak up first are more likely to be seen and treated as leaders. But roughly half of us are not Extraverts. How can we do our best thinking and make the best decisions if we leave half of us out? When you facilitate meetings, what processes include everyone? Join us to explore this topic, understand its importance, and leave with tips and techniques that don’t privilege Extraverts and do welcome Introverts.
