I found this speech to be incredibly moving. We live in a world where extroverts gain all the credit for having the loudest voices in the room, but not always the best solutions. We sometimes know of the Introvert in a “trusted advisor” role…but certainly not enough.
I hope you will spend the short 18 minutes of time to watch Susan Cain and give the Introvert you work with a little recognition. And, if you recognize yourself in here, that it gives you some comfort and empowers you to be you.
