Do You Have to be an Extrovert to Succeed?

Tuesday, December 27, 2016
posted by Jody Maberry 1:00 AM


Creating Disney Magic podcast Lee Cockerell Jody MaberryRecently, a listener to Creating Disney Magic wrote in and said that it seems that Lee makes negative comments about introverts.

In this episode, Lee addresses the listener complaint, but he also examines introverts. Lee himself is an introvert.

The key in business is to get people in a role that best fits them. Perhaps an introvert would not enjoy customer facing jobs as much as they would enjoy a role backstage. If someone likes the work they are doing they will do a great job.

If you work with people as individuals, you will understand how people get energy and work best, whether they are an introvert or extrovert.

To learn more about introverts in the workplace, check out the book Quiet by Susan Cain. Or the follow-up book Quiet Power.

Creating Disney Magic podcast Lee Cockerell Jody MaberryEveryone organization will experience change. Change is healthy.

The problem is people want everything to be the same, but they also want change. So change, even if it is good, can be disruptive. You have to manage change with customers but also within the organization.

Change should be a part of the culture of your organization. If your organization does not have a culture of change, you will face resistance when it happens.

Creating Disney Magic podcast Lee Cockerell Jody MaberryDuring his time at Marriott, Lee opened 100 new hotels.

In this episode of Creating Disney Magic, Lee shares what how Marriott was able to open so many hotels in a short amount of time.

When you expand and open a new location, customers don’t care that you have only been open a few days or a couple weeks. The customer paid and expects excellence. Being new is not an excuse for not delivering.
