In an increasingly hyper-social and extroverted world, New York Times best-selling author and acclaimed TED speaker Susan Cain shifts our focus to help us reconsider the role of introverts, outlining their many strengths and vital contributions. Her fascinating 2012 book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, is a paradigm-changing lodestar. In an enlightening, relatable and practical talk, Cain shows us that introverts think and work in ways that are crucial to the survival of today’s organizations. Drawing on the latest in neuroscience and psychology, as well as her original research, she’ll share the best ways to leverage their strengths.
