Did you know that introverted leaders often deliver better results than extroverted leaders do? That the most spectacularly creative people tend to be introverts? That the most innovative thinking happens alone and not in teams?

One of the central challenges of any business is to bring out the best in its employees. Yet when it comes to introverts—who make up a third to a half of the workforce—our leadership strategy mainly consists of asking them to act like extroverts.

In an enlightening, relatable, and practical talk, Susan Cain will show us that introverts think and work in ways that are crucial to the survival of today's organizations. How can you structure your organization so that the best ideas—rather than those of the most vocal and assertive people—dominate? How do introverts' and extroverts' different personalities cause them to solve problems and evaluate risk differently? What do introverts know about creativity that the rest of us should learn?

Drawing on her original research and the latest in neuroscience and psychology, Cain will radically change your view of the best way to develop leaders, manage teams, make smart hires, and stimulate innovation.  

This presentation will be valuable to you if you:

  • Are an introvert or an extrovert – or a mix of both
  • Work with, manage or lead people
  • Live and socialize with quiet people
