As Hana shared recently - it's not an easy job being an introvert at work. But that's not the only thing disrupting your work-life balance or your daily routine. It's even more complex if your core values are not aligned with the values of your company and team.
I'm used to always focus on the individuals, their strong and weak sides, and adapt to working with them most productively and comfortably.
To me, having a team is having a second family. And like every family, you should support each other and strive for improving both your personal and team's performance.
Recently I faced a scenario where people were driven by the desire of climbing this sacred corporate ladder. Their actions and motivations were so different from my core understanding of teamwork and what a healthy team should look like.
In addition to my introvertness (introducing a new word here :)) it has become quite an issue. So I'm wondering - is it possible to preserve yourself in such an environment, without sacrificing much of your energy, motivation, and even desire to work?
PS: I solved my case by quitting my company. Which is making me even more curious about what is the right approach.
