How to deal with extroverts, we share a few suggestions that’ll help you manage the extroverts on your team and produce better creativity.
Extroverts are not just talkative and engaging.
They possess a type of personality, which has the capacity to drain out energy from people around them. Of’ course that depends on the amount of time you spend with the person.
But just because extroverts seem more engaging and easy-going on the first meeting, does not mean they’re simpler to manage.
We share a few suggestions that’ll help you manage the extroverts on your team and produce better creativity.
1. Easy-going not undignified
Maybe you liked the way a person talked during an interview. The all-chatty and peppering conversations impressed you a lot, which is why you suggested that the person be taken on board. However, being comfortable at work and not taking work seriously are two different things. The sooner you make it clear the better.
2. Detailed description
Like they do it every time, they may require detailed, even not-so-relevant points to describe a particular thing. It may sound annoying to you, so while assigning task to the group, make sure you specifically tell them individually how do you want them to work on their tasks.
3. Others suggestions matter
It’s a well known fact that those in the company of an extrovert, never get their chance enough to speak up. Well, that shouldn’t be the case at work, as every single member of the team matters and so does their suggestion. So, before you start talking in the meeting, make sure you announce a few rules regarding the amount of time every person would be given to speak up.
4. Creativity enhancer not killer
They say monotony is the killer of creativity and productivity for extroverts. So, to keep the team’s creativity held high, engage the extrovert in every activity concerned with the team. Apart from enhancing the team’s productivity, that’ll also keep the extrovert’s spirit held high.
5. Quiet receives more respect
A person who talks and expresses normally may not sound great at client-work. However, a research shows that they who are good listeners receive much more respect as compared to the others. Extroverts may be more skilled at client-facing work, but it’s best if they told how important is it to keep things to yourself, at times.
The best way to keep your team’s productivity balanced is by balancing the energy of the team. Of’ course you know what I am talking about. (wink)
