In business and in the workplace, the main purpose of humor isn’t to get laughs or crack jokes. The goal of using humour in the workplace is to increase engagement and connection.

In this episode, I speak with Jo Rawbone, on how being quiet is a superpower. She shares with us her experience as an introvert in business, the different types of introverts, and how companies can promote neurodiversity inclusiveness in the workplace. 

Owning your introversion and being unapologetically you will help not only you but other  introverts thrive in a noisy world of extroverts.

  • Common misconceptions about introverts (9:00)
  • Six types of introverts (11:34)

  • Flourishing is a journey (30:50)
