Here’s a fun story! Contrary to what people today might think about me, when I was a kid, I was definitely an introvert. I remember being in my first-grade class petrified by the idea of talking to the other kids. But as I grew up I met so many amazing people that helped me feel more comfortable in the unending social situations that we experience in childhood. Even though I wouldn’t consider myself an introvert anymore, I’m incredibly thankful for the people in my life who showed so much compassion.
We’re all different, and working with these differences rather than trying to change people is the key to successfully fostering a healthy team relationship.
How does your team make everyone of all personality types feel comfortable, valued, and accepted?
