18 Myths and Truths About Introverts in Business
Extroverts’ perception of introverts is based on some pervasive and faulty myths, like introverts can’t make quick, bold decisions or introverts don’t participate; they are not good team players, or introverts never show initiative.

Dealing With Power-hungry Extroverts
Some people dominate, manipulate and steamroll their way loudly through the corporate ranks. There are ways to temper their obnoxious ways so you can not only coexist, but cooperate.

Handling Confrontations With Extroverts
Approaching the other person with brandished swords will only lead to escalation. That’s not the introverted way, of course, but be sure that you don’t fall into the trap of allowing your emotions to escalate if you are attacked personally.

Creating a Cohesive Team of Extroverts and Introverts
As a manager, you want to get the most out of your team: performance, happiness, motivation and team spirit. How do you create a team that plays to both your extroverts’ and introverts’ needs? And if you’re an introverted manager, how do you handle the constant barrage of interruptions and requests for direction?

Why Introverts Make Exceptional CEOs
At the highly experienced, polished level of CEO, it’s difficult to discern who is an introvert and who is an extrovert. Introverts have mastered some key extrovert tactics. The real secret is that many greatly successful people have simply learned to work with what they have, adapt and yes, play the part.

Faking Extroversion and Other Uncomfortable but Extremely Effective Ways of Coping
Learn how to interrupt; how to be extra friendly (in small doses); how to communicate your value more; and how to make more of an effort to socialize but manage those social commitments.
