I wonder if we could entice Susan Cain to do a workshop and book signing.

What a great idea for a fun evening workshop at a show like Interop, which let's face it, is awash with introverts.

Re: Introverts
Even for extroverts, working a room at a business function IS a task. You have to be thoughtful about it and use strategies to meet people, get in and out of conversations, persuade people, etc.

Re: Introverts
When doing "introvert-unfriendly" tasks like hosting a radio show or mingling at a party or trade show, I consciously pretend to be an extrovert. Think of it as playing a role. And, note how I think of mingling at a party as a task.

It really is a tough time to be an introvert.

I agree with Beth that it is a tough time to be an introverted person, given today's business expectations. Anyone have advice to share on dealing with the pressure?
