Within minutes, Susan Cain became one of my favorite speakers of all time. From the moment she stepped onto the WorkHuman stage, she displayed an undeniable range of knowledge, clarity, authenticity, and warmth. Best of all, she was the same in-person. No surprise, the feedback from our attendees was off the charts. I cannot recommend Susan highly enough and can’t wait to have her back at WorkHuman!

Susan Cain

Best-Selling Author, Lecturer and Expert on Leadership and Innovation

In her New York Times best-selling book Quiet, her record-smashing TED talk and her new Quiet Revolution company, Susan Cain shows us how to tap into our “quiet side” and transform the way we innovate, lead and communicate.

A Quiet Revolution: Changing How We Work, Lead and Innovate

Did you know that many of the most effective business and political leaders possess traits typically associated with introverts (e.g., “soft-spoken,” “quiet,” “thoughtful”) Did you know that some of our most creative and innovative moments come during times of solitary introspection, as opposed to in group or team settings?   As todays leaders are all too aware, one of the central challenges of any business is to bring out the best in its employees—employees of vast and varied personality types and abilities.  This is true regardless of institution—military, government, private or public.  Drawing on years of research and the latest in neuroscience and psychology, Susan Cain—best-selling author, Co-Founder of Quiet Revolution, and renowned expert in leadership and innovation—delivers an enlightening, relatable and practical presentation that will radically change your view of the best way to develop leaders, manage teams, make smart hires and stimulate innovation.

Quiet Kids: How Our Education System Can Teach Introverted Students

A central challenge of any educational system is to bring out the best in all its students. This means providing a robust learning experience for both introverted and extroverted children. Yet too often with introverts—who comprise nearly a half of every classroom—we simply ask them to act like extroverts. This is a serious waste of quiet children's considerable and under-noticed talents, not to mention their energy and happiness. In an enlightening and practical talk, Susan Cain shows us that introverted children possess gifts that enhance the culture of any classroom, and are crucial to the survival of our society. Drawing on her original research, compiled over years, Cain answers a plethora of questions, including how and when to use group work, grade on class participation and use social media in the classroom. Passionate yet coolly reasoned, Cain will radically change your view of the best way to cultivate the talents of quiet children, develop their leadership skills and create a classroom culture designed for introverts and extroverts alike. This is an urgent and necessary talk for anybody concerned with the state of education today.
