Thirty million people have watched Susan Cain’s TED Talk on Quiet, the Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. A Harvard-educated lawyer and seasoned negotiator who left corporate law to become a writer, Susan Cain talks with Tony Chapman about her fascination with human behaviour, emotion and how society celebrates certain qualities over others.
As an introvert from a family of introverts, Susan was fueled by passion and indignation in writing Quiet. This non-fiction bestseller showcases how a lot happens worldwide because of introverts.
She shares how she overcame her insecurities about speaking live to deliver one of the most popular TED talks in the world. Within a year of that appearance, Susan formed an online public speaking and communication class for introverts, emphasizing authenticity over showmanship.
Her latest book, Bittersweet, debuted as a New York Times #1 bestseller, striking an emotional chord with people of all walks of life. She talks about why she feels it touched people and explains why happiness isn’t the only game in town.
Susan offers advice for listeners who don’t feel valued or that they fit the mould of what society expects, emphasizing the value of introverts and the power of sadness and melancholy. In this enlightening episode, Susan discusses the differences and the variety of superpowers everyone possesses. Listeners are sure to relate to the variations in character, behaviour and outlook that Susan celebrates.
Tony Chapman created the Chatter That Matters podcast to counter the storm of negativity and impossibility with true stories of ordinary people who do extraordinary things. He chats with Olympians, Advocates, Celebrities, Leaders, and people who battled what seemed like insurmountable odds.
In doing so, listeners hear life lessons that inspire all of us to do more and to be more, to help us get to where we need, want and deserve. RBC is the presenting sponsor.
