If you haven’t yet watched the Susan Cain TED talk “The Power Of Introverts”, then I highly recommend it. It’s what got me started thinking about the challenges facing introverts in business, and whether they are different from those faced by extroverts.
I’ve been reading Susan’s book “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking“, and it’s fascinating to learn how modern society has been built on the ideals of extroversion – personality and quick thinking – rather than the more considered thinking of introverts.
Time for a change, perhaps?
