Ep 115 - 'How Leaders Can Maximise Inputs from More Introverted Team Members', with guest Alison Lim
Show Notes

Welcome to Her Ambitious Career, the personal branding and success podcast for ambitious corporate women who want to land the most sought after roles and be seen as an expert both internally and throughout their industry.

My guest today is Alison Lim and we are talking about an important aspect of inclusion strategy, which is ensuring both extroverts' and introverts' opinions are heard.

In this episode, we talk about how... 

  • Introversion is another important measure of inclusion
  • How personality profiling can limit people by labelling them as 'introverted'
  • The environment you're in can be the differentiator: introverts may have to work a bit harder to ensure their work is recognised
  • How everyone should have the space and the time to share their perspectives
  • Meeting Chairs should invite everyone to speak to ensure all voices are heard

Alison says:

"The needs of modern businesses are having to incorporate different skills and there are many roles that favour an introverted style these days, such as data analytics."
