Description

"For introverts who panic at the idea of networking, Wickre's book is a deep, calming breath." -Sophia Dembling, author of The Introvert's Way Former Google executive, editorial director of Twitter, self-described introvert, and "the best-connected Silicon Valley figure you've never heard of" (Walt Mossberg, Wall Street Journal), offers networking advice for anyone who has ever canceled a coffee date due to social anxiety. Learn to nurture a vibrant circle of reliable contacts without leaving your comfort zone. Networking has garnered a reputation as a sort of necessary evil. Some people relish the opportunity to boldly work the room, introduce themselves to strangers, and find common career ground-but for many others, the experience is awkward, or even terrifying. The common networking advice for introverts are variations on the theme of overcoming or "fixing" their quiet tendencies. But Karen Wickre is a self-described introvert who has worked in Silicon Valley for thirty years. She shows you how to embrace your quiet nature and "make genuine connections that last, that we can nurture across the world for all kinds of purposes" (Chris Anderson, head of TED). Karen's "embrace your quiet side" approach is for anyone who finds themselves shying away from traditional networking activities, or for those who would rather be curled up with a good book on a Friday night than out at a party. With compelling arguments and creative strategies, this "practical, easy-to-use" (Sree Sreenivasan, former chief digital officer of Columbia University) book is a perfect guide.
