Are You an Innie or an Outie?

Do you wonder how anyone gets work done in busy open spaces? Do you wish you could offer more valuable contributions in team meetings? Do networking events exhaust you?

If so, you might be an introvert, and do we have a networking event for you!

And yes, we recognize the irony.

Our own VP of Strategy, Mikalee Byerman, is a loud-and-proud introvert. And she’s going to offer insights into the key differences between introverts and extroverts at next week’s NCET Biz Bite luncheon, taking place Wednesday, Oct. 25 from 11-1 at the Atlantis.

She believes workplaces tend to favor extroverts — typically through a hyper-focus on collaboration, open office floorplans, and due to the sheer number of extroverts in leadership roles. But she feels (and is supported by research!) that workplaces could become far more productive with improved morale if leadership also valued introversion. She’ll provide insights into these very different personality types and share her ideas about how workplaces can be more inclusive — and the benefits that will result.

RSVP to this lunch event here. It’s only $27 for NCET members and $37 for non-members, includes lunch — and yes, networking.

(Introvert life hack: You’re welcome to show up closer to noon, when the actual program begins!)

In the meantime, check out Mikalee’s column about introversion in the workplace, which includes guerilla tips about how to thrive in extroverted environments, here. This article originally appeared in the Reno Gazette-Journal’s Oct. 18 edition.

We’ll see you next week!

We’re all looking for the science behind social media, am I right? If only there were an equation, or a key, or a handbook that comprehensively shared all of the tips and tricks, we’d all be influencers with millions of followers and thousands of dollars streaming in daily.
