Executives can also be introverted. And you should get an overview of the strengths that intro and extrovert executives have especially often.


Here writes for you:


Dr. Sylvia Löhken 81Dr. Sylvia C. Löhken holds a doctorate in linguistics and is one of the best-known introversion experts.


From the author:




Light and shadow

Today it is about the shadows, which can typically come with every personality. Also with your - especially if you are not aware of the deficits. People now simply tend to assume that they communicate as they are, because the needs of others simply remain in the blind spot.

You can use this overview as a personal blind spot illuminator. Another use option is a new look at your manager (s): If you think your intro boss is letting you drip, it may be a quiet collaboration for him, which is not annoying. And if your extro supervisor is constantly overturning decisions and making new ones, then from her own perspective she will probably find that dynamic and flexible ...

Intro executives

  • are too yielding:
  • does not clarify the rules and does not insist on their compliance
  • work and decisions can be imposed
  • leadership roles are not always true when it is necessary and let things run
  • are too withdrawn:
  • shows too little presence in the team
  • retires too often
  • gives too little feedback
  • the team often feels alone
  • avoids conflicts:
  • is afraid to address conflicts and delicacies
  • strives for too little clarification and solution in stressed situations
  • is too fact-fixed:
  • sets numbers and results before feelings and relationships

Extro executives

  • are too hard:
  • wants to hold the reins himself in the hand
  • self-titled estimate only conditionally
  • wants to be powerful and invests a lot in the self-presentation (status-thinking)
  • is too present:
  • can easily be distracted from the importance of the presence
  • controls the team too strongly
  • there is no room
  • listens too little, looks a little
  • makes other opinions too little
  • makes its own assessment binding
  • is too impulsive:
  • acts out of the belly, especially with impatience
  • can be prone to attacks
  • has problems to record information without a quick judgment

Leadership has many reasons!

Sovereign executives look to their strengths and weaknesses. This is precisely why they develop their own style and find their own means to do their job well. And they help their teams to do the same.

Finally, something important: Take a look at the Success Factors for a good leadership that has nothing to do with intro and extroversion. Goal-orientation, ambition, the pursuit of influence with one's own performance, the need for acceptance in the team and the ability to give impulses to others: All this can be done by a quiet top politician as well as an extroverted corporate boss - with their own resources. One thing is certain: Typical Extro-features such as a charismatic personality or enthusiasm were obviously long overestimated.
