Quiet Revolution and Me: I Am a Quiet Revolutionary

Quiet Revolution and Me: I Am a Quiet Revolutionary

I am thrilled to announce that I have been writing for a new site from the wonderful Susan Cain, Quiet Revolution, and today it went live!

Quiet Revolution's mission is "to create a world where introverts are celebrated for their powerful contributions and, more importantly, for who they are. And where everyone’s quiet strength — no matter what their personality type — is validated." To that end, I have been writing a series of how-tos for introverts, and here's my first piece:

5 Ways to Love Your Open-Plan Office

I used to imagine a middle manager with control issues who gleefully corralled his employees into a single room so he could watch their every move while torturing them with endless loops of the same three mixed CDs he made for a country music jamboree six years earlier. Oh, wait—that guy actually existed, and I worked for him. Let’s try this again.

So, all my fellow quiet revolutionaries and those who love them, see you there!
