Have you ever sat on a board or leadership team where one member really didn’t say much until the discussion was just about over then contributed something very valuable right out of left field?
I sat on a board a number of years ago that had two such members, both Introverts and both iNtuitives. Because of them the richness of the decision-making was exceptional. There were major board restructuring issues and the different perspectives coming from these abstract future thinkers was invaluable!
Too often the input from these iNtuitives can be missed as it may not come forward in the meeting as Introverts like to put forward fully thought out ideas and it can be easy to overlook those who are quiet. This is where knowledge of personality types is especially valuable to a board or team. It ensures that discussions include all members and all aspects of the issue.
Without the understanding of personality type, boards, management teams, and employers can have the feeling that some members or employees are not contributing, while those same members or employees may feel they are not valued as they are not given the chance to contribute.
