Why is quiet an inclusion issue?
Introversion affects 30-50% of the population. (Source: Susan Cain: Quiet)
A significant additional proportion are quiet/do not engage for other reasons (e.g. processing or hearing impairments, personal circumstances, health, trauma etc.)
There is a strong cultural bias towards extroverts
We therefore need to think about value lost through this missing element of engagement
Overview: How can you work effectively with this diversity of thinking?
This course is designed to explore issues around quietness in the workplace, how quieter people can contribute more fully, and how leaders, coaches and facilitators can effectively enable this change. It explores the many reasons that people are quiet, or become quiet, in life and at work. The course is primarily aimed at coaches, facilitators and team leaders – and the introverts and quiet people amongst them.
