This is a blog by a former CEO of a large Boston hospital to share thoughts about negotiation theory and practice, leadership training and mentoring, and teaching.
Having read Susan Cain's book, Quiet, couldn't agree more with your comments on introverts. Another area of impact is the so called Open Office which is so prevalent today in workplace design. The protection of the introvert process needs to be a key design element of such spaces.
From Facebook:Interesting. In retrospect, my co chief resident was an introvert, I am the opposite. There were many times where having her to help negotiate difficult political situations with the residents was invaluable. I guess in the "back room deal" kind of setting. The two of us had excellent communication and made a transitional year in our dept go much smoother I think.Also I would say a huge number of people in the medical field are really introverted. I found that if I didn't sit down with individuals before a group meeting I never found out what people were really thinking.
