First Tuesdays was designed as a continuing-education opportunity for staff of libraries in Washington State, this free web presentation from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. (PDT), lets attendees share their skills and successes and learn about new topics. The special-subject presentations, lasting about 60 minutes, are recorded so that others may listen at their own convenience.
Exploring the Perplexing Other: When Introverts and Extraverts Collide, presented by Leslie Boyter, Essential Explorations, December 2, 2014, 9:00 AM PDT
With the publishing of Susan Cain’s book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking, introversion has become a hot topic. Yet, misunderstandings between introverts and extraverts are still incredibly common. At best, these misunderstandings are perplexing, and at worst they lead to tense and hostile interactions. In this webinar, we will explore the “other,” learning to put ourselves in each other’s shoes and become at least a little less perplexed and frustrated. This Webinar is for both introverts and extraverts and will include both humorous and serious examples of miscommunications. You will walk away with tools for perspective-shifting, a newfound appreciation for the “other,” and a better understanding of how to prevent destructive misunderstandings.
