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?

InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
