#DigiBlogChat Questions August 24, 2021

 

The topic for #DigiBlogChat on Tuesday, August 24th is Introvert or Extrovert and has WFH affected your personality? with @FinolaSloyanPR! Join us on Twitter each Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. PDT for #DigiBlogChat. My partner for these chats is @LazBlazter. If you need to know how to participate, click here: How to Join #DigiBlogChat.

1. Do you consider yourself an Introvert or an Extrovert and has #WFH affected or altered your personality type?

2. Introversion implies shyness and extroversion, gregariousness. Has WFH suited the former and perhaps allowed the introvert to shine in situations it may not have had the opportunity to, in the past?

3. A natural extrovert mixes well in any social situation, is outgoing and looks for social interaction. Typically, they are the person holding court in a social setting. How has this translated into an online setting on Teams, Zoom or Other?

4. Do you agree with introverts being described as shy? Why or why not?

5. One of the regulars in #DigiBlogChat said, straight up, “I’m an extrovert and WFH is so much better than trying to work in a noisy and disruptive office. And due to being an extrovert, a lot of the noise and disruption was from me!” Do you miss the buzz of the office?

6. Changes have been noticed in the demeanor of the extrovert in the time they have had to WFH. How, in your opinion, has it affected the extrovert’s personality and attitude?

7. Getting time back has been one of the big positives, if not the biggest, of having to WFH. In this time, what have you learned about your personality and have there been any surprises?

8. Can we be both introverted and extroverted? You may feel that you’re mostly introverted in nature because you prefer to be alone or in small groups, however you ‘can’ feel energized when you’re with the right crowd at the right time. Is this you?

9. Introvert or Extrovert, neither is right or wrong. Knowing our tendencies can help us to be more accepting when others don’t have the same responses to our own, do you agree?

10. Finally ….. have the last 18 months made us more self-aware or will we revert to type when we return to the office?

Background description

Innovation means different things to different people.

Let’s assume that innovation means improvements that involve step changes, that is: discontinuous improvement. This applies to the ways that we operate and to the products that we use. It involves how we behave in the presence of novel products and processes and how we initiate and contribute to the development and deployment of those novel products and processes.

We all learn and develop our views over time. And we all follow different routes.

This is about the route that you and other people take in the field of innovation: where you are, where you started from, how you got here, where you think you will end up, how you think you will get there, and what is next step.

Innovation is (arguably) the area which is least well managed of all areas of the activities of people and organizations.

These questions are about knowledge, understanding, and practise of innovation. This is about you (and your organization) and is about other people (in absolute terms and relative to you). And it’s about how this changes over time: past, present and future. While the journeys that we and others take follow many routes, they also have many similarities.

Here are the questions:

1. How important do you consider that innovation is to the achievement of your, or your organization’s, purpose … and why?

2. How different was your view of innovation in the past? Has its importance increased/decreased? Has its role changed or not?

3. Is your understanding of innovation still changing? In future, do expect to understand much more, or has your view stabilised?

4. Does the way that innovation is described by other people fit with your understanding (is it more or less important, are they ahead of or behind you on this journey)?

5. Do you think innovation has become more or less important over time (in the past)?

6. Do you think innovation will become more or less important in future?

7. Do you view innovation as something that we can ever manage effectively? Or do you think it will always be random and unpredictable?

8. Are you happy with the way that innovation is understood and managed? Or do you think that developments are needed? If so, what?

9. Do you think that innovation will ever be a routine aspect of how we behave or always be difficult?

10. Do you enjoy innovation? Or do you wish it would stop?!
