Uncover Your Secret Strengths With at least half of the population being introverts, either you are an introvert, or you’ll interact with someone who is. No matter what, others won’t be quite like us in how we think, feel, or communicate. And that’s a good thing!
This topic has been a game changer for me in leaning into my grant writing career. That’s why I’m excited to finally have the chance to talk about it with today’s guest. The better we understand ourselves and how we work, relate, and rest effectively, the more we can build much more impactful and influential relationships with those around us.
Great strengths come from both introverts and extroverts. To maximize those, it’s helpful to understand the unique needs. Each style is most effective when we can draw out those special attributes.
Since we don’t always recognize when an ability is considered a gift, these conversations are important. That’s why I invited David Hall on the show! He’s full of insights and practical advice for leaning into our strengths.
David Hall, host of the podcast The Quiet and the Strong, Especially for Introverts, explores the world through the eyes of a fellow introvert. He discusses his journey to figuring out that he is an introvert and understanding introversion. By embracing these gifts and understanding them, we can learn to be good in our own skin.
Challenge Question: Are you an introvert or an extrovert? How can you better lean into your natural strengths?
