As a learning function, how open are you to new opportunities? Channel shifts and alternative models? Not just a rehash of things you’ve always done but a change of gear in the approaches you apply.
If you’re looking up and out you’ll spot them before they come to you and you’re more likely to be shaking things up and generating game-changing support and services that might just surprise you in their outcomes.
If you’re more introverted, as a function and an organisation, it’ll be seen as more work and people will tell you how it won’t work and something – anything – that might go wrong.
There’s nothing wrong with the introverted function; don’t suggest that you’re really looking to change if it’s not true.
