Fantastic Free Resources from our Worldwide Community
For my final posting of 2022, I wanted to take this opportunity to share a plethora of resources from the worldwide introvert community. I've been fortunate to work with and get to know many of these people. Their talents and passions are immeasurable. Whether you are looking for a quick read, an in-depth book, a podcast to listen to, or a coach to engage with, this is a great place to start.
The picture shares some of my favorite books in my introversion library. I would also recommend a few I downloaded recently which help redefine introversion: Peter Vogt's Introvert Manifesto, Heather Hall's Step Up and Stand Out: 20 Tips for Aspiring Introverted Leaders, and Nancy Yang's The Secret of a Social and Confident Introvert.
I'd like to highlight some more powerful reads:
Jennifer Kahnweiler's Creating Introvert-Friendly Workplaces and David Boroughs' The Extrovert's Guide are essential reads for extroverted leaders in the corporate world.
Dr. Kristin Neff's Self-Compassion and Brene Brown's Daring Greatly were game-changers for me. Though they don't speak specifically to introverts, they spoke to me and changed the dialog in my head!
Schachter-Shalomi & Miller's From Age-ing to Sage-ing redefines what it means to get older...in a very positive light. An important read for all of us in our mid-life crisis.
Angela Duckworth's Grit speaks to all introverts...indirectly. It identifies the keys to success not as bombastic personalities or even intellect, but grit...the perseverance and passion to overcome obstacles and drive toward success. These are common strengths of many introverts. This book is a confidence booster!
You can read more about these books and authors, as well as many more on my website's Resources Page.
