Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce presents Business Before Hours with guest Beth Buelow, founder and CEO of The Introvert Entrepreneur. She’ll speak on six things your introverted colleagues want to tell you (but probably won’t).

If you think the introverts in your office don’t have much to say, think again. There are things that you can do to make your work environment (or home life) more “introvert friendly.” However, the introverts in your life may not feel like they can make their needs known. Here are six things introverts would tell you that would make a huge difference in their productivity, effectiveness and satisfaction. And if you’re an introvert, you’ll pick up some ways to communicate your needs clearly and honestly. This is not about giving or asking for special treatment; it’s about acknowledging and honoring differences in work and communication styles.

As a professional speaker, certified coach and corporate trainer, Buelow is on a mission to empower introverts to understand, own and leverage their natural strengths. She is certified by the International Coach Federation and is an active member of the Puget Sound Coaches Association. Buelow has enjoyed sharing her message with numerous organizations and corporations, including Boeing, Starbucks, Peterson Sullivan, Ignite Seattle and the Professional Women in Building, among others.
