Living in Frause and Harmony
Between work, family, friends and extracurricular activities – having all aspects in balance creates a harmonious life. Don’t we all want a harmonious life? Even deeper, don’t we all want a harmonious workplace? The opportune Frause employees are blessed with a harmonious workplace, which is derived from a balance of personalities. (All employees reading this, you were hired for a reason!)
One can be an extrovert, introvert and sometimes, both, an ambivert. The easiest way to understand the difference between extroverts and introverts is to contemplate the environment in which you are most alive and yourself.
*Now is the time for you to go to your happy place*
If you are alive and capable in a quieter or low-key environment, you are more of an introvert. If you prefer to be in a more social or stimulating environment, you are an extrovert.
At Frause, the environment is one where introverts and extroverts can do their best: superior work. An example of this superior work was shown at the Frause morning huddle recently when Susan Lamb shared a video worth spreading, “Susan Cain: The power of introverts”.
After watching the video, I was inspired. I sent out an email to the Frause team asking them to take a quick test to provide their results as to whether they are introverted or extroverted. I was excited to see the results.
I want to point out that not one person decided to email directly. Why do I bring that up? Because the most important aspect in a positive work environment is one where there is trust. Everyone shared their personality results in the email feed for everyone to see. That meant everyone saw each other’s personal results, open about who they are and therefore, facilitating a feeling of cooperation, teamwork and joy. These things make me happy. And yes, I am a lover of the simple things.
Now, the results. The Frause team is made up of 50% introverts and 45% extroverts. Who’s the true ambivert? Erika, the boss, the 5%. The results show a balance in personalities and a balance between extroverts and introverts. The Frause team has proven that they are graced with extroverts while also recognizing the power introverts possess.
