The Power of Introverts

This The Power of Introverts video also includes:

One-third to one-half of the population are introverts, yet they are increasingly subjected to a culture where being social and outgoing are prized. And as author Susan Cain argues in this video, "When it comes to creativity and leadership, we need introverts doing what they do best." Support your learners who thrive on solitude and greater autonomy, and encourage them to generate ideas free from distortions of group dynamics. Cain eloquently emphasizes that as much as we emphasize group work and collaboration, it is just as important to instruct learners how to work on their own.
