The Flourishing Introvert Talks
Even though around half of any population identify as an introvert, this aspect of diversity, equity and inclusion is too often overlooked.
Every Thursday join flourishing introvert and TEDx speaker Joanna Rawbone MSc, as she explores the costly challenges that introverts face on a regular basis. This podcast is for introverts who want to know how to progress and for those they work or live with who want to understand them better.
Running masterclasses on “Authentic Assertiveness” recently, reminded Joanna of how frustrating it can be to be overlooked and undervalued in the workplace. This simple reminder nudged Joanna to keep the topic of assertiveness on the agenda.
As Introverts, we often fall into behaving too passively when it comes to our rights or needs. This can happen as a result of us being expected to compromise our authenticity to fit in.
Who doesn’t love a little bit of magic? Joanna certainly does, and in this episode, she shares the magic she experienced from a wonderful session with an amazing coach who uses the Demartini Method. Joanna’s coach truly helped her in shifting an issue she has been experiencing decades. As an introvert, what do you need to shift so you get out of your own way?
A wonderful extraverted introvert friend of Joanna’s, asked a fabulous and complex question, “How do you live as an Introvert or Highly-Sensitive Person with an irrational defensive person in your close orbit?” That question sparked this interesting and unusual episode.
In this episode, Joanna welcomes Nicole Louise Winer, a Social Introvert, and former global investment banker who is now a brilliant business strategist, mentor, and coach. She empowers ambitious professionals to build profitable businesses they love without sacrifice and doesn’t believe in “one size fits all” approaches.
As adults, we must take responsibility for our own beliefs, choices, and actions. In this episode, Joanna shares some of the actions she took when taking stock along with the resultant outcomes, describes what toxic positivity is, explains how the saying “Everything happens for a reason” can be useful at times, and more.
