There are many perceptions of what an introvert is/ does/ how they act, most are wrong (and negative). The articles on this page are about those perceptions,  what tactics can you use and how can you improve yourself whilst still being you? Scroll down for articles about introversion, just past a couple of ads.

Being introverted means you may be quieter, but it doesn’t mean you have to be any less successful in business. You can be quietly successful and be more effective at work, despite the extrovert bias that exists in the business world.

Articles about being quietly successful.

I hope that you find some of (or all of) these articles interesting. I know they work as they’ve come from many of the research interviews I complete about introversion every month, or because I’ve helped people implement them.

To be successful don’t try to being introverted, but be brilliant at being who you are. When you harness your introvert super-powers and “deal with” some of the “issues”  that some people perceive you can be successful on your terms. Don’t try to be extroverted, be the best you possible.

The articles headed “Activate Your Introvert” are recordings of my weekly shows, everything else is in writing.
