QUIET

By March 17, 2015 July 13th, 2016 Book Reviews

I highly recommend Susan Cain’s book ‘QUIET: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking’.  In several recent meetings I’ve been talking to people about their introvert profile.  They are frustrated with having to work in open plan offices where they are constantly interrupted, or having to participate in day long meetings that are so full of talking and noise. This book will really help them appreciate how vital their contribution is to their teams and colleagues around them, and help develop ways of explaining their need to work in spaces that are conducive to reflection and uninterrupted thinking time.
