Daisy Simonis, Founder of Empowered Introverts, shares tips to help introverts tap into their unique skills in her conversation with our president, Steve Gilman.
When it comes to how we interact with our world — and our work — we all have superpowers. And while we live in a fast-paced, extrovert-centered world, there’s actually a subset of characteristics gaining both familiarity and fascination among the working masses. That superpower actually belongs to those uniquely wired to be introverts. In fact, according to the founder of Empowered Introverts, Daisy Simonis, when introverts tap into their unique wiring, the whole world becomes a better place.
From her early days in publishing at Oxford Press to working in the Ted Talk space, Daisy has found that while introverts bring highly-desirable skills to the world around them, they often can be left out and left behind until they tap into understanding and leveraging the communication skills that ultimately set them apart.
In doing so, introverts often find that what makes them different is also what makes them great. While some skills come naturally to introverts, such as active listening, processing, and organizing, there are others that will serve to advance their careers and impact those around them the more they learn to embrace and enhance them.
In this episode, we dive into topics ranging from how pandemic work life both uniquely benefited and challenged introverts, as well as how developing certain key communication skills in the new era of networking will advance introverts’ careers in more ways than realized.
Daisy has dedicated her career to teaching and training introverts in the art of people skills that ultimately help them tap more into their superpowers than ever before. Regardless of whether you identify as an introvert, extrovert — or even an ambivert — it’s clear we all have something to learn from this episode.
