Quiet Is A Superpower
The Secret Strengths of Introverts in the WorkplaceBook - 2020
How does a self-described "extreme introvert" thrive in a world where extroverts are rewarded and social institutions are set up in favor of them? Using her personal story as a "case study of one," debut Taiwanese author Jill Chang shows that introverts hold great, untapped potential for success in a globalized world. Chang draws from her own experience working in fields that are filled with extroverts, including as an agent for Major League Baseball players, a founder of her own business, and a leading figure in tech philanthropy. Instead of changing herself to fit a mold, she learned that embracing her introversion was the reason she was able to accomplish great goals and see blind spots that obstructed her extroverted peers. Quiet Is a Superpower gives introverts the tools to better understand how they can form relationships, excel in cross-cultural workplaces, and navigate extroverted settings without compromising comfort or personality.
