Patricia’s new book hits stores this summer ” Communication Toolkit for Introverts: Find your voice in everyday business situations”
Can you be both an introvert and an extrovert and a baby boomer?
Well let’s start with the definition of an introvert. I bet most of you think that an introvert is someone who is shy and extremely uncomfortable conversing with the public. That may be true in some cases, but a true introvert is a person who feels energized by working or being alone and feels stressed and drained when surrounded by a crowd for long periods of time.
What is an extrovert? They are just the opposite. An extrovert feels energized when working with others and enjoys group settings, loves conversation, and would rather speak with others than to sit alone and think.
Truthfully I am a little of both. I cherish my time alone, and feel the most spiritual growth during times when I work alone. Sometimes I write and at other times I paint. All though I do enjoy other people, I want the interaction to be when it’s right for me. There I admit it. Can you relate to that?
Now let’s discuss Baby Boomers. The beginning of the “Baby Boomers “ era began in 1946 through 1964. But what does “ Baby Boomer” really mean other than there were a record number of baby’s born during that time. Boomers are frequently linked with a time of growth for the country, because they grew up in a time of widespread government subsidies in post-war housing and education, and increasing opportunities to aquire affluence. They are a segment of our society that believed in a great future, and they expected the world and the economy to improve with time. It did for many decades.
However, many Baby Boomers expected to retire with huge portfolios by the age of 62 through 65. Well, things haven’t quite worked out that way for all Baby Boomers. Many are finding themselves back in the job market for many reasons and facing brand new challenges. They are living longer because of the medical advances and treatments; however, they frequently feel stressed, tired, and lacking the energy they once enjoyed. Often they feel their voices are not being heard, their services and experience unappreciated and many companies are replacing their positions with younger employees.
Another issue is that we are an aging society, and some Baby Boomers are working full time, dealing with distinctive health issues and at the same time caring for their elderly parents. All the pressure can leave them feeling sandwiched and unheard in the business arena, in their social lives, and feeling exhausted. Why are so many of us struggling with these issues?
