When your order books are full and your sales team is flying high you can be forgiven for being a little complacent.
An Introvert On The Front Line: The Hidden Benefits Of Allowing Different Team Members The Chance To Lead
A leader needs to have the confidence to stand up and be heard, but a loud voice is not the only characteristic of a good leader. Determination, technical skill, good memory, empathy, calmness under pressure, humility and sympathetic communication are all desirable features in a leader. These can be equally present in a so-called introverted personality, as they can in an extrovert. Many of history’s greatest world leaders have been considered introverts, among them Mahatma Gandhi and Woodrow Wilson.

Salespeople are not all created the same; some use direct value-based tactics while others may prefer to lay on the personal charm. An individual's personality will influence the kind of strategies they use when trying to convince customers to spend money. It is useful for a business to comprehend the personality type of employees, especially during the recruiting process to see if it aligns with the company's style.
Team building exercises are effective ways of improving the productivity of employees, but only if they are done right. Communication is something that every manager or business leader must focus on. If a team is to work in unison, it has to be good at communicating within itself and with other departments. Improving the communication skills of a team goes a long way in enhancing the self-confidence of members.
A team needs to work interdependently to reach an objective. To achieve this, however, members must be able to accommodate each other's personalities. The cohesion of a team depends on how people engage. For this reason, understanding the characters of team members is crucial. Knowing about team members' strengths and weaknesses makes it easier to manage them. Myers Briggs is one of the common personality tests that enterprises use to learn more about their employees. It can help a company identify where employees are most useful.
Recruiting high calibre graduates and preparing them for the challenges that lie ahead is an annual challenge faced by Human Resource Professionals.
