I help Americans, with our emphasis on speed and aggressiveness, stop walking past the "intellectual treasure" embodied in the 51% of the population that I call the "quietly brilliant" (aka introverts) and help introverts and extroverts connect and communicate in ways that are mutually beneficial.
Whether they know it or not, this is a huge issue for bosses, managers, leaders, educators, medical personnel, parents, lovers ... you name it.
There are no villains or victims in my talks. Instead, I overturn stereotypes and provide concrete ways in which we can develop our own strengths, appreciate one another's strengths, and become more successful and less stressed.

What to Expect
You audience is eager to find information with which they can connect and communicate with bosses, employees, co-workers, mates, children in order to reduce stress and frustration and create the life they desire.
A huge difference, until recently overlooked in the United States, is the temperamental dimension known as introversion and extroversion.
I dispel the many stereotypes we have a bout these two types and give concrete suggestions as to how to cope successfully, all without positioning one side as villains and the other as victims.
Extroverts are surprised and thoughtful about things that go on under their noses that they haven't noticed; introverts are pleased to find they can become more visible and more effective, appreciated for their worth, without having to become someone they don't even like.
And I do all of this through storytelling that grips their attention and makes the wisdom they uncover long-lasting.
