A combination of introverted and extroverted traits helps leaders strike the right balance

Published: 30 April 2024

Extroverted people often take naturally to leadership roles – but they don’t always do enough listening. Introverted leaders may listen more, but sometimes lack the ability to inspire. A combination of the two personality types could yield the best results, according to Associate Professor Karl Moore. “The downside of extroverted leaders is that they often like to talk more than listen,” says Moore in an article in Scientific American. “Introverted managers attend more to their employees and give them more room for their own successes. Ambiverts--who draw on both ends of the spectrum--could ideally do both.”
