    Introverts in the Modern Workplace with Jennifer Kahnweiler

    Today on the podcast I’m welcoming back Jennifer Kahnweiler, speaker, researcher and author of several leadership books including “Quiet Influence” and “The Introverted Leader.” Jennifer and I discuss how the “new normal” work environment affects both the extroverts and introverts on your team. If you’re wondering how, as a leader, you can support your people to be their best, Jennifer suggests the answer involves getting curious and listening. 
     
    In this conversation we chat about:
    * The benefits of an out-of-office workplace experience in its ability to allow focus and promote productivity
    *How a hybrid workplace affects the introverts and extroverts on your team
    * How to run a virtual meeting where everyone participates
    * How to promote community for the introverts and extroverts on your team.

    Books, Articles, Tools & Resources mentioned on this episode:
    Check out Jennifer’s latest research and the article she wrote about the advantages of working from home.

    Jennifer’s Life Hack for Better Conversations in the Workplace and Beyond:
    Take time apart from those you’re with. Make sure you take breaks from people; get outside and take time away to allow yourself a chance to reset. Outside is a healthy SPACE, use it for your good!

We have realize we have to do our very best to take care of them.'"
