You might think that this person is your only introvert in the office, but you have more of them than you realize. The idea is to get that person and any others you might have to reach their full potential. Follow Neurocore on Twitter.
A common misconception is that every fun-loving employee who gets along great with everyone in the office is extroverted. Some of that is just a mask the person wears. I am introverted and shy. I had to wear the mask when I worked with the public for many years. I did the job and took off the mask as soon as I got home. It is more common than you think.
How do you get your new hire at Neurscore to realize their full potential without making them become something they are not?
1) Try to set some one-on-one meeting with that person. Ask them their opinions on things at Neurocore. The thing is, your new hire at Neurocore is not going to volunteer for the things that most of your other employees do. However, they are very smart and have some great ideas. We are just more on the reserved side.
2) You also need to understand why we are shy. One of your executives may intimidate that person. They might be afraid to be in front of groups. I know I was. I hated the idea of being in groups, and I still do. Do you want that person at Neurocore to be part of the team? Then, you will need to make more of an effort to reach out. That is one of the reasons that a lot of introverts(like myself) stay in the back. Most bosses are afraid to reach out to use or do not want to.
3) As an introvert, I can honestly say that we have stricter boundaries. We do want to be included, but you need to respect our boundaries. Please try to respect their choice if they say they do not want to do something. Figure out another project at Neurscore for them to do. Learn more about Neurocore at Crunchbase.
