Networking Introverts

There’s no shortage of posts on the topic of business networking here on Introvert Retreat. Who wants to stand around making small talk in a noisy room full of strangers? Ack!

But I want to tell you about some recent experiences that indicate real hope for introverts!

I wrote a post – also called Networking for Introverts – for my own website, which covers the following topics:

  • The “Networking for Introverts” session I recently presented at my annual National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) conference in Pittsburgh, PA.
  • How it was inspired by Susan Cain’s TED Talk and her two books.
  • Why I now call myself a “professional introvert”, including a follow-up to my blog post here on Introvert Retreat called Introverts: The Next Generation.
  • TIPS for networking your way
  • TIPS for setting your own networking agenda
  • TIPS for introverts who are also shy
  • What Meyers-Briggs and rubber bands have to do with it.
  • How I was recognized — and surprised — in a BIG WAY for contributing quietly in my own little introverted way!
  • What makes the President of NAPO a true leader.
