It sometimes seems like extroverted people have an easier time getting along and communicating. But people with a quiet personality also have good ideas and talents that can benefit your organization. The trick is to find ways to unleash these hidden gems. Whether you're a supervisor who wants to bring out the best in your employees, or you work closely with an introvert, or you are an introvert who wants to discover and capitalize on your own strengths, this interactive workshop can help you learn these secrets. Increase your understanding of the distinctive strengths of introverted people. Learn specific tactics to foster more and better communication so that even the quietest person can be a high performing employee, supervisor, and team member. (This is part of the Supervisory Skills Certificate Program, but you do not need to be enrolled in the program to take this workshop.)
