Did you know that nearly half of the people you work with or interact with daily are wired to work in exactly the opposite way you are?
Seriously: Recent estimates show that the ratio of introverts and extroverts in the workforce is roughly 50-50. So this means you’ve likely thought to yourself, “It’s just not NATURAL to work this way!” And you’re absolutely right.
Today’s business climate significantly favors extroverts. From sexy new open office floor plans to a hyper emphasis on collaboration, from a suspicion of those wanting time away from the office to a favoring of those who are bold and assertive and vocal in meetings, the scales are definitely tipped.
And stats bear this out: One recent study revealed that only 2 percent of senior executives identify as “introverted.”
Yet introverts are people, too! And they even make great leaders! (Shocking, we know.)
So if you are an introvert — or if you work with introverts (pro tip: that’s EVERYONE) — this is the Biz Bite for you.
Join Estipona Group’s VP of Strategy Mikalee Byerman — a “surprising introvert,” as others have called her, because she “acts extroverted” — as she explores how to customize the work environment to foster the very best contributions from introverts and extroverts alike.
Mikalee will offer:
- A glimpse of the sometimes scary inner dialogue introverts and extroverts engage in while in the work environment.
- Ideas about how to take the favoritism out of your office environment, letting everyone let their freak introvert/extrovert flags FLY!
- Solutions and results — what potential are you squandering if you don’t think about personality type in your workplace?
Oh, and one more thing: Introversion may mean something entirely different that you think. In fact, you could be an introvert — and not even realize it! Mind blown yet? Hope so.

Mikalee Byerman is a prolific writer, editor and communications strategist, with hundreds of published clips — both in print and in pixels — sporting her byline.
She currently serves as V.P. of Strategy for the Estipona Group, a virtual communications/advertising agency with local, regional and national clientele.
For almost two decades, she has worked as a writer, marketing/PR director and communication consultant.

A social media nerd by passion and profession, Mikalee devotes much of her time and energy to learning about the latest digital tools and techniques.
