Auditorium Speaker - Susan Cain Speaker series Dallas Convention Center
Theater
Description :

Susan Cain - author of the forthcoming Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking (Crown, January 2012) - will talk about how dramatically our culture misunderstands and undervalues introverts in this increasingly social world. She will address, based on the latest psychology and neuroscience, why she considers these advantageous traits and feels she owes her success to them. She will offer a perceptive critique of collaboration and outline a plethora of practical skills such as how to network if you hate small talk and how to modulate your personality according to circumstance. Cain blogs at http://ThePowerofIntroverts.com and is author of a "most e-mailed" New York Times article on the value of shyness and introversion. Sponsored by Random House
