Whether you consider yourself to be more of an extrovert or an introvert, it is important to understand which temperament you lean toward. When you understand your temperament, you can use it to your advantage in the workplace.
“There’s no right or wrong way to be in the workplace, and the most productive teams are usually made up of a mix of introverts and extroverts,” writes Katelynn Kolterman in the March/April issue of CPA Voice. “Each person has strengths and weaknesses, so identify yours and look for ways to leverage them at work.”
While it is important to learn about your own temperament, Kolterman suggests learning about the other temperament as well so that you can have a better understanding of those around you.
“Learn about the other people on your team so you can help them leverage their strengths and mitigate weaknesses,” she writes. “When we can all feel comfortable bringing our true selves to work and know our contributions are valued, we can better serve ourselves, our teams and our clients.”
