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.
