Extroverts vs. Introverts; Finding balance gets the best results

Whether you want to increase innovation and or engagement in your organization, the art of balancing personalities in workgroups / teams and meetings is extremely critical. When you encounter a situation where a team just isn’t jelling, but you can’t afford to wait for a newly configured team to come up to speed, the best solution is to find an experienced facilitator to balance out the power.

A good facilitator, in addition to bringing in some new & neutral insight into the discussion, will flatten out the highs (moderate the extrovert) and boost the lows (give voice to the introverts). Ironically enough, my experience demonstrates that the most valuable contribution and productive disruption often comes more from the introverts than it does from extroverts.
