Often, at work place only the loud voices are heard while the introverts stay quiet.
Participants can follow this simple principle during meetings : “W.A.I.T” principle.
Introverts should ask themselves :
What Am I Thinking (W.A.I.T)
Extroverts should ask themselves :
Why Am I Talking (W.A.I.T)
A leader’s role is to listen to everyone in the room and solicit input.
Key for successful communication is active listening and asking questions to engage everyone in the room.
