How to Convert Introverts into Extroverts

http://www.vinjones.com/convert-introverts-extroverts

As part of the Employee Engagement Design method, we interview employees. I could do this 10,000 times and I will always be amazed at what I learn.

Recently I was interviewing an employee of a company as part of an effort to understand their current culture.  He was one of hundreds of engineers who have been labeled as introverts.  He said that anything we do must take into account that fact that we are dealing with many introverts because they respond differently to company initiatives.

When he said this, a little devious thought came in my mind....

Does your environment create introverts that hold back, are shy, and don't want to engage? Or does it create those who are passionate about their work?

New Video!

5 Warning Signs You Are Wasting Your Life in “Little Boxes”

This video has been a long time in planning.  Ever since Walk Off The Earth remade the song Little Boxes, I have been obsessed with the correlation between the song and what I see at too many companies.

I see people stuck in their jobs, going through the motions, living life on a very normal scale, following the others just because “that is what you do”...  (read more: http://www.vinjones.com/5-warning-signs-wasting-life-little-boxes-video/ )

Responding to the Chick-fil-A slang issue:

Employee Engagement By Force or by Freedom?

Eric, a Chick-fil-A manager, obviously had had it.  His employees were using slang and then saying, “My pleasure.” (Which, I find a bit ironic because “My pleasure” is slang itself because it is an incomplete sentence.  It should be “It’s my pleasure.”  But we can overlook that.)

To cut the slang out of the restaurant, he posted a list of words the employees were no longer to say...

For every company, including Chick-fil-A, if they had high employee engagement, employee issues like slang would not be a problem.

Social Business Failure #2: Rely on Stats
vinjones.com

To show ROI we are forced to give stats – yet the stats don't move to action and only tell part of the story.

We slept at a different BW last night and it was decent, nicer than this one and $60 cheaper. Not sure why this one is more expensive besides different town. Not too impressed. For $15 less (times two rooms) we have stayed at Little America (which is close). Sure, no breakfast was included, but the rooms and hotel overall were MUCH nicer. In addition, the internet is VERY slow here. I'm trying to work right now and am having a very difficult time doing it. Rooms are cramped, but fine and clean for a quick stay.

I'm from out of town and Expercom was recommended. Friendly, quick and honest, they fixed my MPB. I thought two things were wrong, and they said that one issues was creating the other and all they had to fix was the first. Wish we had the same people/store in my home town.

The prices here for the food are VERY reasonable. We love coming here. Good food (especially the croissants with the honey glaze - they are to die for), good atmosphere, and I can't complain - except... It is so popular that there is usually a long wait to get in. Come no later than 5pm if you want to get in any time soon. Service is good. We did have an incident one time, but the manager more than made up for it. They are very generous here.
