“Introverts” vs “Extroverts” as leaders – Choosing the right context

Eric Barker makes a mention of the same in his book “Barking Up The Wrong Tree”.

When the workforce is passive and need to be emotionally charged up and motivated , bring in an energetic and extroverted leader who can influence the masses and rejuvenate them.

When the workforce is already motivated , need space and pointers to create something revolutionary , bring in an introverted leader with great listening skills who can remove impediments and create a conducive environment to help the workers excel.
