Jakarta, Indonesia - Many of us are familiar with these two characteristics. We may know people who are either of two or we ourselves are. Some people may accept extroverts as sociable people but cannot utterly comprehend the ways of the more passive counterpart. Others prefer the silent ones as they bring balance to this otherwise boisterous world.
These two personalities do not only exist in social gathering. Even in the conflicting confines of the workplace, introverts and extroverts exist, sometimes even at each other’s throats. Depending on the culture of the organization, one may be best suited being a leader than the other.
To determine which leadership personality is perfect for management, The Peterson Group, one of the leading sources of information in leadership coaching and consulting, differentiates one from the other.
As we all know, extroverts hold the spotlight and is mostly the mood setter in any situation. They interact well among the crowd and are never awkward except when they are alone. They may have all the positive attributes to being a leader but this personality may also have a negative trait with them.
Pros: - They never seem to know any stranger. Everyone is a potential client or better yet, a potential friend - They involve themselves to anyone who would have them. They are not reluctant to share what they have and are good at instigating personal discussions.
Cons: - They can overpower any conversation which can cause complaints and conflicts. The client who is “strictly all business” can also misinterpret it as being arrogant and cause mistrust - They can be over friendly. In a workplace, crossing boundaries between professionalism and closeness can later create friction and disrespect.
Introverts are the quiet ones and are mostly focused on their own concerns alone
Pros: - With high level of concentration, they can finish an assigned task on deadline - They can become effective leaders, not in spite of but because of the fact that they don't push themselves forward. They tend to have a realistic view of their abilities and the patience to figure out the job as it progresses.
Cons: - Caution and warning signs seem to be hovering above their heads when they are focused into something. A little distraction can lead to friction - People misinterpret their actions as cold, distant and aloof and oftentimes have less involvement
