Having served as a mentor and teacher to professionals of all stripes and studied organizational psychology, I’ve gained experience and perspective that led me to develop a complete program to leverage the full power of introverts. Introverts in professional roles deserve more than they currently get in the world of work.
Over the past five years, I developed and refined a template for success that is summarized in The Introvert’s Guide to Professional Success: How to Let Your Quiet Competence Be Your Career Advantage, a practical how-to manual informed by good behavioral science and tested by introverts in various walks of professional life.

The Boy Who Loved Ants: Edward O.Wilson
on March 12, 2012
I loved this book. It is a delight and I believe that almost any child will like it. The graphics are exceptional and the prose is clear and parsimonious. Van Dyke tells the story of Edward Wilson in a compelling and straightforward way. It is a story with many lessons about commitment to something larger than oneself, imagination, hard work, and our connection with nature. I truly believe that parents and teachers will love it as much as I did - for the platform it offers to engage young minds in an inspiring way AND for the sheer pleasure of the story itself.
