Susan Cain at GRCC Diversity Lecture Series

“Quiet, The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking”
Susan Cain – Author, Lecturer

Susan Cain is a former corporate lawyer and negotiations consultant and a self-described introvert. Her book has sparked a genuine national conversation about introverts. Although our culture undervalues them dramatically, introverts have made some of the great contributions to society from Chopin’s nocturnes to the invention of the personal computer to Gandhi’s transformative leadership. Based on intensive research in psychology and neurobiology, Cain argues that we design our schools, workplaces, and religious institutions for extroverts, and that this bias creates a waste of talent, energy, and happiness.
