John, an introvert, and Quinn, an extrovert, were training managers at a regional government agency. The employees in their office needed help with creating viable learning plans. Unfortunately, John and Quinn were overwhelmed with requests for coaching and needed to come up with a solution to serve their all employees.
I have worked with a number of introverts and extroverts in government and have drawn many lessons from my time spent with these public servants.
I wrote this guest blog post for the Careers In Government website and highlighted a case where these opposites worked through their differences to create a successful career center.
